KISS: Paul Stanley previews Face The Music memoir

KISS frontman Paul Stanley is sharing a preview of his upcoming memoir, “Face The Music: A Life Exposed”, which will be published April 8th.

The 432-page memoir chronicles Stanley’s life and rise to global success with KISS, which he co-founded in January of 1973 with bassist Gene Simmons from the ashes of the pair’s previous band, Wicked Lester.

The book will feature rare photographs and candid memories about Stanley’s wild life with KISS.

Stanley has posted an excerpt from the memoir, which reveals his thoughts on developing the KISS makeup.

“We never sat down and articulated the ‘why’ behind the makeup,” writes the guitarist. “We had no real understanding of why. We had just wanted to go further than others had, to become a band the likes of which we ourselves had never seen.”

Stanley has also recorded an audiobook version of his autobiography.

“Face The Music: A Life Exposed” can be pre-ordered via the Amazon link below.

Two days after the book is published, KISS will be inducted into the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame at a ceremony in New York, along with Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt.
