    This book is a trip

    Definitely a "read in one sitting" book. Well done by the authors, even with the difficult subject matter at times. For me it was a trip down memory lane, growing up in the same area, being at the same places, sometimes at the same time as these stories are unfolding in this book. In some parts, the book is a good lesson about how much people you are close to can hurt you when their lives are run by drugs and alcohol. In other places, the book shows the metro New York area in all its "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" glory in the 70s and 80s. It will be interesting to see Frehley's side of things when his memoirs book comes out Spring of 2011.

    Great, entertaining, fun read!

    I've heard about this book for a long time and a lot of fellow Kiss fans told me to avoid this book like the plague. I decided to take the plunge and, boy, I need a shower after reading this one.
    First of all, I could not put the book down. I found myself trying to find a place where I would not get interrupted after reading the first chapter. I read it in ONE sitting! If you knew my reading habits that is a HUGE compliment to this book.
    One story after another I found myself embroiled in emotion whether it was laughter or disdain for Ace and his co-horts.
    Number two, the photos. Every photo was new to me and PRICELESS. Ace as a teenager, Ace with a mustache, Bill Aucoin wearing a neck brace, Anton Fig, Ace jamming with a barefaced KISS during his wedding in the 70's, Ace's wedding pictures, Michael Richards (Kramer from Seinfeld), the authors with Ace clowning around with girls. The photos were worth the price of the book alone.
    I can go on and on but this book ROCKS! So much inside information. I could see how some big fans of Ace would be upset but he's only human and we get to see a side of Ace we would've never known. Kudos to Bob McAdams and Gordon Gebert.
    I give this book two thumbs way up, a must-read for any fan of KISS, or any fan of insane rock stories. It is too crazy to be true but no one could make this stuff up.
    I already put my order in for Gordon's new book ROCK & ROLL WAR STORIES. If it's anything like KISS & Tell I know I'm going to enjoy it.

    Whoa! I need a shower after reading this.

    I've heard about this book for several years now and I finally got the courage enough to read it. It's like witnessing a train wreck, you can't just look away. I could not put this book down. I read it in one sitting and when it ended I still wanted to read more even though it took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions about my favorite guitarist of all times. I only have one thing to say to Ace if I ever get the chance to meet him, 'Please, tell me it isn't so about what you and Peter Criss did!' Do I recommend this book? It's a total must-read. I found myself morbidly enjoying the read. Has it changed my image of Ace Frehley? Possibly, only time will tell.
