GAP&P is worth reading for both the avid KISS fan, and for people interested in music in general. Especially for those who take an extra interest in how and what are happening in a recording studio. Love it !!!
Gene-spotty but has some redeeming cuts
Peter-Like Easy Thing, but honestly, not heavily played
But not everyone holds that opinion. For example, Larry Harris, who worked at Casablanca, bitterly views it as the downfall of the label and his cousin Neil Bogart.
Session players have fond memories of participating in the solo projects. Dennis Woloch explains the events that led underrated painter Eraldo Carugati to create the most iconic images of KISS seen to this day. That being said, the book explains the how and why the solos occurred, and how it more than likely ended the hot streak of success KISS achieved until that point. Now,
a few critiques:
-Typos: Julian, Tim, you write such good KISS books, but take a break to rest or reread a passage to ensure grammatical accuracy!
-The blow by blow stat sheet on the KISS Meets The Phantom movies was just padding, all due respect.
That aside, this is another great KISS book.
I am perplexed as to why Tim McPhate's name does not appear on the cover. Despite the glowing acknowledgement by Julian Gill at the back of the book, 75%+ of the book is comprised of Tim's interviews and transcriptions, and it seems odd he's not listed as co-author. I guess there must be a good reason though.
