He
turned 71 on December 20.

(FOXNews) – Peter Criss is saying goodbye to the stage. The co-founder
of the rock group Kiss, formed in New York City in January 1973, and co-
author of its hit single "Beth” is retiring with a final show.

On Saturday, June 17, Criss will play what he said is his last U.S. concert
at New York City’s The Cutting Room. The audience can expect a mix of
Kiss classics, his own solo material, and covers he always wanted to
perform live but was told by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, "We don’t
do that; it’s not Kiss." Criss said,"I want to leave the stage happy."

Israeli airplanes attacked the USS Liberty in the Mediterranean
during the 6-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors on
this day in 1967.

Thirty four U.S. Navy crewmen were killed. Israel apologized for
the attack, saying that the USS Liberty had been attacked in error
after being mistaken for an Egyptian ship. 

Both the Israeli and U.S. governments conducted inquiries and
issued
 reports that concluded the attack was a mistake due to
Israeli confusion
 about the ship’s identity.
