Format: DVD
Like all independent documentaries, "Inside The Tale of The Fox - The Eric Carr Story" suffers from the absence of "official" material - namely, Kiss music and Kiss footage (even if some Kiss interviews are included). But then, considering how poorly Eric is featured in all of Kiss' documentaries (you can never hear his voice, for instance), this video more than makes up for it. And it does include commentary from Eric's parents, Kiss' original manager Bill Acouin, Kiss' former guitar player Bruce Kulick and his brother Bob Kulick (who replaced Ace Frehley in a few studio recordings) and Cinderella and Slaughter members. A lot of Eric's private video and home films are also included. If you're an Eric Carr fan, you certainly won't be disappointed. If you're a Kiss diehard fan, you'll also want this documentary. By the way, the DVD edition includes four Eric Carr audio recordings.

This dvd is excellent. It actually benefits from there being no "official" kiss footage. You'll be quite surprised at some of the earlier bands Eric was a part of. And you also get excellent commentary from Bob and Bruce Kulick, Bill Aucoin, Adam Mitchell, members of Cinderella and Slaughter, and especially moving sentiments by his drum tech.

At the start of the 80's, Kiss was experiencing quite a few set backs. Probably a very negative time. It is obvious why they chose Eric. He was probably something that Gene, Paul, and Ace always wanted to be. A strong willed, 100% positive force, at all times. Ace I believe, attempted this with his "always being a clown", happy drunk, manner.

I always view the first 2 records with Eric KISS' best. I also saw him many times throughout their unmasked 80's era. The BEST part of their concert was always the drum solo. He made the stereotypical mile a minute hard rock BORING double kick solo, very musical with the electronic drums he used. Thanks. If only Kiss listened to you more.

To sum it up, Eric was way more then just a great drummer. He was a very good artist as well. He always met with fans, and genuinely LIKED them. Very UNSELFISH. If I could have met any of the members, knowing what I know now, it would definetly be ERIC CARR, KISS' most talented member and a all around great person.

Footnote: Carmine Appice, respected rock drummer, wanted to do tribute to Eric but was stopped in his tracks by the KISS corporation. How sad and unforgivable...

"Tale of the Fox" is a very professionally-done and fitting tribute to a great drummer and great person who was stricken with such a horrible illness and died so young. The one potential knock against this DVD is the lack of KISS footage and contributions from Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons (Bruce Kulick appears in many clips and Ace Frehley appears in a clip where he accepted Carr's plaque for his 1995 Rockwalk induction) but, to me, that doesn't detract from the DVD at all. There are a myriad of KISS releases that show live shows with Eric and interviews. This DVD shows clips most fans have never seen before: photos of Eric Car as a child and playing his first drum kit (it even has audio of his first recorded drum solo in 1967!), home movies with much of the footage filmed only months before his death, and backstage films of Eric providing commentary on the rock star's life (he seemed to really enjoy doing commentary on almost anything). Plus, there are some interview clips in his KISS makeup and some KISS live footage; such things are not completely absent from this DVD.

Many people talk about their memories of Eric and what Eric meant to them including his parents, his longtime girlfriend Carrie Stevens, Bill Aucoin, Bob Kulick, musician and songwriter Adam Mitchell, Carmine Appice (who wanted to do a tribute on Eric with his video company Power Rock but KISS wouldn't allow him to use the "Eric Carr" name), and members of Slaughter and Cinderella Blas Elias, Mark Slaughter, Dana Strum, and Fred Coury. It includes photos and even audio of his Beatles-esque band The Cellarmen (with Eric on vocals!). I did not know that he barely escaped a club fire in 1974 that killed several members of his band Salt & Pepper.

This DVD was very appealing in many ways. It lets us in on how much of a genuine person Eric was. His parents tell the tale along with Bruce who played with him in KISS. I also had the pleasure to be at the 1st ever concert with him in Kiss at the old NYC Academy of music, But was called The Palladium at the time KI77 had rented it out, to practice before going over to alstrailure. So many locals heard them every day with his drum sounds pounding out of the back doors, that the day before the was to leave. They put on sale tickets for us few lucky fans to see them play, it held maybe 2,000 fans & the Stray cats opened & was booed & pelted off the stage after 10 minutes...I was atthe age of 12 & it was an incredible night that I will always treasure. Unfortuneatly Gene/Money bags wouldn't allow his parents that put this together with help from other industry insiders. To use any footage of Eric other than backstage antics of him being his goofy self. Except for the use of old magazines & a very short clip of Eric with Bruce jamming on stage doing a duet type of solo, we don't get any other footage of Eric playing w/KI77. I also was blessed with being a NYc yellow cab driver back around the Animalized recording & seen eric in his Don Johnson, white suit & slacks on 8th ave & 53 rd st.in NYC just leaving a studio having to get to the airport. I asked why he was walking that area, looking for a ride & not having the rock star treatment he disearved for bringing life back into KI77? He said that after over 7 years, { with me keep poking for a honest reply } that it wasn't part of his deal of being a hired drummer for the Hottest band in the World!!Read more ›
