Hello Cleveland!: Kiss’ Peter Criss Sloshed Onstage

CrissOh, Peter.  What a naughty kitty you are.  This footage from 1979 shows the Kiss drummer front and centre singing the band's hit ballad 'Beth', their highest ranking song on American charts.  On this particular night, Criss (or 'The Cat', as he is known to the Kiss Army) had six too many Jim Beam chasers and is completely, totally, utterly wasted.  Tanked.  Trashed.  Blitzed.  Smashed.  He can barely sit upright during the song, so I can't imagine how he managed to play drums for the rest of the show.  A year after this debacle Criss was fired from the band, although he has been re-hired and fired again twice since then.
