The heavy metal band KISS shook the whole world of rock n' roll, but they came from inauspicious beginnings. After the band founded by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley called Wicked Lester went bust, the pair reformed and renamed the group. Then KISS debuted relatively quietly in January 1973 at the Pop Corn Club in Queens, New York. The rest (and 100+ million album sales) is history. This fully authorized biography draws on interviews with band members, producers, roadies, fans, and others to flesh out the formative history of the attention-grabbing group. Constructed as an oral history from hundreds of interviews with band members and others, Nothing to Lose recaptures the excitement of a band discovering its tsunami-force identity.
