4.0 out of 5 stars Peter has his own story to tell, October 23, 2012

This review is from: Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of Kiss (Kindle Edition)
Let me start by saying that I was a huge Kiss and Peter Criss fan as a kid in the seventies. And my loyalty always was to Peter above the other three band members - although I liked them all. I am not a Kiss fanatic today nor have I been a member of the Kiss Army since I was ten. lol So when I saw this book, at first I was skeptical, thinking it may be a money grab for Peter. But after debating, I went ahead and bought the Kindle version and dove in. To my surprise, this is actually a good book that fills in some of the holes surrounding facts that have been out there for years. I started in chapter one about Peter's upbringing, but quickly skipped to chapter 4 that begins to narrate the Kiss years. It is enlightening to hear how much input and influence that Bill Aucoin, his partner Sean, and Neil Bogart had in shaping the band leading to its success. A lot of the ideas that have been attributed to the members of the band really came from outside sources as you'll see as you read through. Sadly, Peter is his own worst enemy and he clearly has some undealt with anger towards the other band members. And most of his bad luck is his own doing. He comes across as honest and sincere, yet entitled and ungrateful so it is really hard to feel sorry for him - particularly due to his malicious statements towards just about everybody but his current wife and his daughter. If you are on the fence concerning this book, it is well organized and worth a read for sure. I found the book hard to put down as I knew little of his life after Kiss. It has a happy ending as he seems to have a good relationship with his current wife and is a cancer survivor. I always wondered exactly why he left and this book certainly answers that question.
