Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of Kiss

Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out

Founding drummer Peter “Catman” Criss’s New York Times bestselling memoir, “the best—and most honest—account of KISS craziness during the band’s heyday in the 1970s” (Publishers Weekly), now in paperback—“KISS fans will love every word” (Rolling Stone).Legendary founding KISS drummer Peter “Catman” Criss has lived an incredible life in music, from the streets of Brooklyn to the social clubs of New York City to the ultimate heights of rock ’n’ roll success and excess. KISS formed in 1973 and broke new ground with their elaborate makeup, live theatrics, and powerful sound. The band emerged as one of the most iconic hard rock acts in music history. Peter was the heartbeat of the group. From an elevated perch on his pyrotechnic drum riser, he had a unique vantage point on the greatest rock show of all time, with the KISS Army looking back at him night after night. Peter Criscuola had come a long way from the homemade drum set he pounded on nonstop as a kid growing up in Brooklyn. He endured lean years, street violence, and the roller-coaster music scene of the sixties, but he always knew he’d make it. Now Peter tells of his eye-opening journey from the pledge to his ma that he’d one day play Madison Square Garden to doing just that. He also faced the...

KISS and Make-up

KISS and

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 thirty years ago and has become a rock institution. The band has sold more than eighty 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.Before Gene Simmons there was Chaim Witz, a boy from Haifa, Israel, who had no inkling of the life that lay ahead of him. In vivid detail Gene recounts his childhood growing up in Haifa under the watchful eye of his beloved, strong-willed mother, a concentration camp survivor; his adolescent years attending a Jewish theological center for rabbinical studies in Brooklyn; his love of all things American, inc...

MAKE UP TO BREAK UP Ma vie avec et sans KISS (French Edition)

MAKE UP TO BREAK UP Ma vie avec

« J’aimais mon groupe. C’est ce que j’ai eu de mieux dans ma vie. KISS était un groupe spécial. Il n’y en aura jamais d’autre comme lui. Il a fallu une alchimie très particulière pour donner un résultat pareil, unique et irrésistible au point d’organiser non seulement de simples concerts, mais des événements à part entière. On a mis sur pied un véritable cirque rock’n’roll, avec les musiciens qui volent à travers les airs, qui crachent du feu et lévitent à trois mètres au-dessus du public. On était un groupe, pas une marque. On vibrait avec nos fans, parce que, au départ, on était comme eux. Je lui ai donné mon cœur et mon âme, et mes pensées les accompagnent encore aujourd’hui. Après tout, vous vouliez le meilleur, et je vous ai donné le meilleur. » Ainsi parle Peter Criss. Né à Brooklyn dans les années quarante, le premier batteur de ce groupe mythique nous raconte sa vie et sa carrière, ses amours et ses malheurs, sa mère et sa fille, ses femmes et ses amis – des managers aux fans. À travers ces pages se livre un homme au grand cœur, loin des polémiques et de la vie trépidante de la rock star. Un regard de l’intérieur sur un groupe mondialement célèbre, le regard unique du Catman sur le show business et la musique.

Face the Music: A Life Exposed

Face the Music: A Life

NEW YORK TIMES and INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERIn Face the Music, Paul Stanley—the co-founder and famous “Starchild” frontman of KISS—reveals for the first time the incredible highs and equally incredible lows in his life both inside and outside the band. Face the Music is the shocking, funny, smart, inspirational story of one of rock’s most enduring icons and the group he helped create, define, and immortalize.Stanley mixes compelling personal revelations and gripping, gritty war stories that will surprise even the most steadfast member of the KISS Army. He takes us back to his childhood in the 1950s and ’60s, a traumatic time made more painful thanks to a physical deformity. Born with a condition called microtia, he grew up partially deaf, with only one ear. But this instilled in him an inner drive to succeed in the most unlikely of pursuits: music.With never-before-seen photos and images throughout, Stanley’s memoir is a fully realized and unflinching portrait of a rock star, a chronicle of the stories behind the famous anthems, the many brawls and betrayals, and all the drama and pyrotechnics on and off the stage. Raw and confessional, Stanley offers candid insights into his personal relationships, and the turbulent dynamics with his bandmates over the past four dec...
