More Road Stories With Peter "Moose" Oreckinto

Original KISS road crew member Peter “Moose” Oreckinto returns to the Decibel Geek podcast for a second week to continue discussing the early days of the band and the struggles they encountered.

In this long-form discussion, Oreckinto discusses pivotal early concerts for the band including the Fillmore East showcase for record executives in January of 1974, television tapings for ABC’s In Concert and the Mike Douglas Show, and a strange concert at an Air Force Base in Fairbanks, Alaska, in front of some very surprised soliders. Also discussed is his return to the band in a management capacity on the Destroyer tour.

Peter “Moose” Oreckinto contributed to the upcoming book "Nothin’ To Lose: The Making of KISS (1972-1975)" due to be released on September 10, 2013. With interviews of over 200 others that worked with/for the band during those formative years, this book was put together by the band and author Ken Sharp and is expected to be one of, if not the, best KISS-related book to be released.
