Even if you're not a KISS fan, this book is a great read of the heady times of early 70's Rock. Written in the same quotation style as the brilliant New York punk era history "Please Kill Me", the book offers insight by the band, roadies, managers, relatives, groupies & concert attendees. Other bands who played with KISS are also quoted including members of The Stooges, New York Dolls, Aerosmith, RUSH & other less well known but important contempories of the band. Management figures including Bill Aucoin, Neil Bogart & others offer great insight into the difficult financial times the band endured before finally cracking the big time. The book is filled with lots of photos featuring candid moments of the band & early shots, many never seen before. I consider this the best book written on KISS & a great companion piece to KIssology vol 1. I hope they follow up with 1976-1980 book when KISS were at their peak.
