Rock Musician. Born Paul Charles Caravello, he replaced founding member Peter Criss in the rock band "KISS" in 1980, and played drums with the band until his death in 1991. He took up the drums at age 14, inspired legendary drummers Ringo Starr of "The Beatles" and John Bonham of "Led Zeppelin". Before joining KISS, his career saw him play with punk singer Wendy O. Williams and the band "Bionic Boogie". When he became a member of KISS the band was still in their days of wearing face makeup in public, and he took the persona of a fox. After a struggle with heart cancer, he passed away in 1991. On July 25, 1995, he was posthumously inducted into the Hollywood Rock Walk on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.
