Read full description of the books:
Fueled by an explosive mix of makeup, costumes, and attitude, KISS burst onto the music scene thirty years ago and became a rock institution. The band has sold more than 80 million records, has broken every concert attendance record set by Elvis Presley and the Beatles, stands behind the Beatles alone in number of gold records from any group in history, and has spawned more than 2,500 licenses. There would have been no KISS without Gene Simmons, the outrageous star whose super-long tongue, legendary sexual exploits, and outrageous makeup have made him a rock icon. KISS and Make-Up is the wild, shocking, unbelievable story from the man himself, about how an immigrant boy from Israel studied to be a rabbi, was saved by rock and roll, and became one of the most notorious rock stars the world has ever seen. KISS and Make-Up is not just the classic story of achieving the American dream through the eyes of an immigrant boy making good. It is also a juicy, rollicking, rock-and-roll read that takes you along for the ride of your life with KISS--from the 1970s, when they were the biggest band in the world, through the '80s, when they took off their world-famous war paint, and into the '90s, when they came back bigger and badder than ever to become the number one touring band in the world. In his own irreverent, unapologetic voice, Gene talks about the girls (4,600 of them and counting); his tight bond with KISS cofounder Paul Stanley; the struggles he and Paul had with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss and their departures from the group; the new band members and Eric Carr's untimely death; the enormous love and affection he has for the people who put him there in the first place--the KISS Army andthe ever-loyal KISS fans around the world; his love life, including stories about his relationships with Cher, Diana Ross and Shannon Tweed, Playmate of the Year. KISS and Make-Up is a surprising, intimate look at the man behind the mask. For the first time Gene reveals all the facets of his complex personality: son, rock star, actor, record producer, businessman, ladies man, devoted father, and now author.
