Peter Criss, Stan Penridge

One of two songs Peter Criss brought to the "Love Gun" sessions. "Hooligan" was a somewhat autobiographical piece written with Stan Penridge while the two worked on ideas at the Record Plant Studios. In contrast to the material Peter had brought to the KISS album sessions previously, this song (along with "Love Bite") were his first true collaborative efforts with Stan Penridge. According to Stan, "That actually began in the studio in the midst of a conversation. Peter was talking about his grandmother. Can't remember about what - but I remember him saying that she called him a 'Hooligan.' Five minutes later we were laying down rhythm tracks. I played bass and guitar. Peter sang and played drums. He was really playing that night" (Lynn I. Swanger).
