Kiss Army Worldwide!: The Ultimate Fanzine Phenomenon by Gene Simmons
The KISS army is everywhere! For 35 years and counting, KISS has been one of the world’s top touring bands. Here for the first time is a visual history of KISS through never-before-seen concert photos and unique fanzine tributes and memorablia, starting from this iconic band’s very beginnings in the 1970s to today. Featuring new interviews with Gene Simmons and fans from all around the world, it is the ultimate tribute to the world’s ultimate rock ‘n’ roll band.
Gene Simmons is co-founder of KISS. Among his many other accomplishments, he is the author of two New York Times bestsellers including SexMoneyKiss. Simmons is the founder and publisher of two magazines, president of his own record label, and the star of two reality shows: Gene Simmons Rock School on VH-1 and Gene Simmons Family Jewels on A&E.
Gene Simmons was born a very poor Chaim Witz in Israel in 1949, and immigrated with his divorced mother to Brooklyn in 1958. Thrilled by comic books, The Ed Sullivan Show, and rock and roll, Simmons ultimately decided that people crave great rock and roll music and a great theatrical show. People crave excitement and escape from their everyday lives. This inspiration led Simmons to create the most enduring sound in rock music history.
