You wanted the truth, you got the truth - the hottest book in the world! Fueled by an explosive mix of makeup, costumes, and attitude, KISS burst onto the music scene 30 years ago and has become 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 superlong tongue, legendary sexual exploits, and demonic 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.
Gene's Tongue Wagging
Gene gives a reasonable account on the goings on of Kiss, but sometimes one must ask yourself, is this book just an attempt to take a swipe at Ace Frehley and Peter Criss? Around 75% of the book is criticism of Ace and Peter, and Gene tries to emphasise as much as he can what a flawless character he is. Don't buy this.
