Kiss: The Early Yearsby Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Waring Abbott
In the 1970s the band KISS was on top of the world, breaking attendance records at stadiums, selling millions of records, and recruiting thousands and thousands of people into the KISS Army. Almost 30 years and 80 million records later, the band has an intense and loyal following and an enduring place in rock and roll history. Though the band has 2500 licenses and has sold everything from KISS key chains to coffins, the KISS band members have never put out a book (only the $158.95 KISSTORY books sold through mail order) that gives a fans a behind-the-scenes look at what it was like to be in the world's most famous band.
Now in KISS: The Early Years co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have put together a collection of photos and text that give fans an insider's look at their life on stage performing for thousands of screaming fans and backstage when the make up came off. Photographer Waring Abbott, who has photographed the band for years, has an amazingly intimate array of photos, most of which will be published for the first time. These photos perfectly capture the energy, the chaos, the outrageousness of life with Gene, Paul, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, and Gene and Paul's text provides a running commentary of what the band was thinking and doing during this wild time. KISS fans have never had such an up close and personal look at their favorite band, and rock and roll fans in general will be thrilled to see such an important band and pivotal time in rock history captured in such a visually stunning way.
