Somebody's Waiting

Eric Carr, Bruce Kulick, Adam Mitchell

This song was first brought to KISS in a group of four demos by Eric Carr, and regardless of the song being a monster ballad, it was rejected in favor of Paul's "Forever" for inclusion on KISS' "Hot In The Shade." According to Eric, "It was a great ballad, Gene loved it right away, and Paul really thought it was very very good. 'Forever' was such a killer ballad, out of the two, that was obviously the better one" (Dark Light, Spring '90). The song was finally completed with some additions by Bruce Kulick for inclusion on the "Rockology" album, though prior to falling ill Eric did consider trying to work on the song for the album that became "Revenge." When asked about reworking the song Eric commented, "I'd like to, I'd like to try it again... And if not that one it will be something else 'cause I've got some other ones too" (Strike #23). Eric would also add a bit of the "Strutter" drum introduction to his demo.
