Kiss’ makeup, costumes, pyrotechnically loaded sets, iconography, and general visual overkill have always been a primary drawing card for the band. Over the years, its fans, the Kiss Army, have, besides aping their onstage appearance, expressed their devotion in the fanzines surveyed by this loud, gaudy, lusciously tacky, near-perfect Kiss relic that also amounts to in-depth fan perspective on the costumed quartet. It showcases hordes of devotees, scores of amateur performance photos, and loads of testimonials from and short biographical sketches of band members. A lengthy gallery of concert and publicity posters chronicles the band’s visual presentation, though a lack of dates for many posters frustrates precision about the progress of that presentation. Of course, precision is a very un-Kiss-like thing. More Kiss stuff than any but the most devoted fan perhaps should want. --Mike Tribby

I can't really say much else since I just got my copy but for the price it may be one of the best buys out there and a must for Kiss fans.......
Rock N Roll All Night!!!
*Update Oct 3-09, have been back through the book a few more times and didn't want to admit that I had some of my images from several Okla Concerts as well as a Kansas City Concert- all 70's but after reading some of the recent reviews I decided why not and perhaps some Oklahoma fans will decide to buy the book for that reason. I counted around 17 images used, many full page down to half page size and I was very happy with how they turned out which I hope is a selling point for the book because the quality is very nice considering the low cost and perhaps the quality you would expect from a higher price book. But I would like to thank Ken sharp and Gene for using some of my images...... and Paul as I'm sure he looked through images as well.
But with that said I highly recommend the book to all Kiss fans, considering how much stuff cost these days ...the book and the new CD/DCD package may be one of the best bargains this year for the money if your a Kiss fan....old or new. and I hope some of my shots added a little to the book..... and even if I had no images in the book I would still recommend it.... it's loaded with some killer Kiss-History
I was one of the editors of KISS Heaven magazine and over the years from '92 - ' 96 we put out a slew of issues on KISS.
Here for the first time we all get the props for creating a phenomenon almost as big as the band itself........

Great job to everyone who is in this book and who worked on it ........ oh yeah and get Ken's other book..... KISS : Behind The Mask ..... great read!
From cover to cover, this is a collection of the passion KISS fans have always had for the group's music, stage presence and the unique culture it has inspired for three-plus decades. I remember being ridiculed as an elementary school student (fourth grade) by other kids who thought KISS were evil or lacked any talent or were a mystery they had no interest in discovering. I wore those taunts like a true badge of honor and when looking at the pages of this book, I am reminded vividly of why I, and millions like me, never lost faith in KISS. I cannot imagine what my childhood would've been like without them, because they gave a misfit like myself a place to go, be welcomed and celebrated. Quite a gift.
My submission to the book was based largely on my own KISStory, so to speak. But it also had to do with seeing fanzines as something we as the KISS Army could tap into and keep tabs on the guys and their work as a band and in other projects as well. The fanzine I was part of was the brainchild of a guy named Steve Huff. He made it possible for me to write columns and be involved with the fanzine world. I owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude for that. What you see here in the book is a tribute to that and it's a great thing. So, buy it and enjoy. I think Ken should next tackle a book about KISS tribute bands . . . they're an extension of all this madness we call KISS. Until then, the fanzine book is a must for anyone who loves KISS or the person who digs unique material.
