By John S Harris VINE VOICE on March 14, 2002
Format: Hardcover
[Money] is a bit much for a book, but this is a limited edition and mine was signed by the band (1995 line-up). Great historical info and pictures in this book, and you have to appreciate the amount of work that went into assembling all this stuff for the book (though the binding has given many owners some problems). Superior to its follow-up KISSTORY II. This book is perhaps better as a collectible than as a gloves-off historical document of the band, but there is a lot in this book to like, even if Gene and Paul do pull some punches about their own troubled and storied career. Want some more behind-the-scenes stories of the band? Check out the book KISS AND SELL by C.K. Lendt, available at this website and many others. Lendt's book is a bit more revealing of the ugly business aspects of the band's history, and significantly cheaper.

In what is supposed to be the difinitive story of my favorite band KISS, i have to say, if falls a bit short. For starters, i think full page pics of the band would have been cooler instead of the various collages and text written over the pics. Also, i personally would have loved to have seen features on the various guitars and drum kits used. That would have been very cool!. With that, features on the evolution of their stages, costumes and make-up would also have been cool. I don't know. KISS is more a cash cow business than it has ever been and it's un-fortunate because if they came out with ligitimate, cool stuff, people would still buy it. Don't get me wrong, this book is a must have, and even the rediculous price tag is justified because it is what it is. But, i think ALL the copies should have been autographed and i think more attention to the details should have been made. Where's a pic outside the Chinese theater? Why no shots of them rehearsing without make-up? Why not commentary from the band on their songs, albums and each other? KISSTORY falls short on its HISTORY!!!

would I purchase this book? The answer is no. While the original series was autographed (by Bruce and Eric in mine) the stability of the book and the time it took to get the thing both were/are sub-par. When it appeared that the original band would never get back together - this was a very good document to the past. Now, it's nice for pictures, but a lot has chaged in the world of KISS. I would recommend Extreme Close-up or Second Coming as video documents. Much cheaper and about the same content. Pictures can always be found on the web anyway.

hello!,my name is mark, and i am 30yrs.old and kiss is a very big part of my life and if you fell the same as i do about the band, you will need this book to brush up on your history(kisstory)filled with never seen photos of the band in the 70s and covers the small things that make you feel that much closer to the band,i was too young to see them in concert(the 70s)but more than made up for it on 10/09/96 in philly!,if you only buy one kiss book in your life,this has to be the one!

I thought this was worth the money considering it's size, content, and the fact that it's signed. Tons of great rare pics. The comic section is pure filler though. I'd give it 5 stars but can only give it 4 due to the comics and also to the fact that it's poorly bound. The cover, pages, slip case, etc. are all of high quality, but I've seen so many of these that are falling apart at the seams. If you buy one, read it carefully. Don't open it too far, and certainly don't let your clumsy, careless friends get their mits on it! It's a good read too if you don't mind the fact that it's The World According To Gene & Paul.

If you are a Kiss fan, than this book is a must have. Be forewarned, it is very, very big. And yes, there could have been other information in it that was left out, but overall, it is a must have on my shelf.

I got the KISSTORY book I ordered in excellent condition. I knew I was taking a risk buying a used book but I didn't care. I've been a KISS fan for 36 years and I've always wanted to buy this book but the price was too high when it came out. So I waited and waited and waited until I finally saw it for what I considered an affordable price. Now I wanted the KISS book and I got the best KISS book, KISSTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
