date_of_death: November 24, 1991

age: 41

cause_of_death: Brain hemorrhage and an aneurysm due to treatment from cancer of the heart

claim_to_fame: Music

best_know_for: Despite being a replacement of an original member, Eric Carr was immediately accepted by die hard KISS fans based on his personality and superior percussion skills as compared to his predecessor. Carr's last recording with Kiss was for the song "God Gave Rock 'N' Roll to You", which featured him on backing vocals. The last time Carr worked with Kiss was in July 1991 when Kiss filmed the video for "God Gave Rock 'N Roll to You" with Carr playing drums. Oddly enough he died on the same day as Queen's lead singer Freddie Mercury, so his death was lightly covered in the press.
