I’ve had a lot of changes in my life recently, and have gotten away from this Blog. I am back on my feet and back on the Blog. For my first Blog I just want to send out the link to my Amazon page for those not familiar with my work. Thanks, Ken


Not so long ago I wrote a book describing my days touring as a tech with KISS, Alice Cooper, STP and many other bands. It is called “We Are The Road Crew”. On Amazon you can preview most of the book and see if you’ll like it. Thanks, Ken Barr

I have a page on Amazon where you can find my latest work. Please watch for new releases in the next week or two. Thanks, Ken

I have just started using my Facebook page for the book again, here is the link:!/pages/Ken-Barr-author-We-Are-The-Road-Crew/127325692428

I worked on the 1995 KISS convention tour. We set up all the displays, helped the tribute bands if they needed help, and set up the band and sound gear for KISS. I teched for Eric Singer and Gene Simmons. Early on the tour Peter Criss came to a show and ended up singing with the band. This may have been when the seed was planted for the reunion tour that happened the following year. I have a clip of Peter singing “Hard Luck Woman”. Peter and the band all sounded good that day.

In 1995 I was part of the KISS road crew, and one of the things we did that year was the Unplugged video shoot. That whole summer the band had been doing their own convention tour, and playing an unplugged show of their own, although at that time Gene was playing an electric bass, for the video shoot we had to find him an acoustic bass. I had been teching for both Gene Simmons and Eric Singer all summer, and when it came time for the shoot, I teched for Peter Criss as well. It made for a hectic work schedule, but I was just glad I could be part of it.

In 1995 I was part of the KISS road crew, and I was there for the “Unplugged” shoot. I actually teched for Gene Simmons, Eric Singer, and Peter Criss. We had a small crew so we were pretty busy, but it was worth it.
