Rock Musician. Born Mark Leslie Norton, he is best known for his stint with the rock band KISS. He was featured on their album "Animalize", which was recorded in 1984. During its production St. John developed Reiter's Syndrome, which caused his hands and arms to swell, and he was unable to perform live as a member of KISS except for three shows during the follow-up tour. He did appear in the video for the album's hit single "Heaven's on Fire". St. John went on to form the band White Tiger, becoming the first ex-KISS guitarist to release an album on his own; he also made a 1990 demo with fellow former KISS member Peter Criss and released an all instrumental CD, "Magic Bullet Theory" (2003). He died at 51 of a cerebral hemorrhage.
