"It was very painful to read, and very informative...being such a part of most of the years of Eric's KISS tenure, made me relive my years in the band with him. Naturally, a must read for any Eric fan." --Bruce Kulick, ex-Kiss guitarist
"Prato's book on Eric Carr was wonderful, read it twice. Stuff I never heard about before like Eric Singer ghosting on 'Hot in the Shade.' It's sad to see Carr was right about Singer replacing him. Lotsa good info, great job. I learned more from this book than I did from Ace's autobiography!" --Shandon Sahm, Meat Puppets drummer

You get some great insight on what was going on with the band during those years. I felt that Paul's book was sorely missing this.
As a huge fan during that period, I saw them every tour from 1984 on and loved the way Eric drove them to heavier music. The dude was amazing in concert and always beat the crap out of his massive drum set! I never liked drum solos at concerts but I always enjoyed Eric's (and Tommy Lee's). He made it an event.
If you enjoyed 1980's KISS and want to read some great stories to remember what a great guy Eric was, do yourself a favor and read this book!
