With the release of Out On the Streets: The True Tales of Life on the Road With the Hottest Band in the Land...KISS!" ($29.95) the band's millions of fans worldwide will finally get an up-close and behind-the-curtain look at KISS's formative years on the road. This highly detailed 347-page book comes directly from the collective efforts of JR Smalling, Peter Oreckinto, Rick Munroe and the late Mick Campise, who comprised the core of the band's original road crew from 1974 - 1976. In Out on the Streets the four share an intimate and inside look at life on the road with KISS, and detail what it took to lay the foundation for one of the most spectacular and successful rock bands in history. Out on the Streets digs into the dirt, the blue-collar work ethic, and the crew's unwavering loyalty to KISS's ridiculous "biggest band in the world" pipedream. The four authors spin tales of fighting headline acts like Aerosmith just to get in and out of gigs, logging over 90,000 road miles in 1974 alone, wrestling with thieves and warding off racism. There's violent tragedy on a personal level, mind-numbing hours and days without rest, bullet-ridden vehicles, arrests, abject poverty, catalogs of carnal pursuits, broken promises and ultimately a skyrocket of success. Rare photos, original itineraries, and detailed production schematics are just a few of the perks that litter the pages of this rich and rewarding memoir. Out on the Streets is available directly from the authors themselves. The authors embellish the book with a thriving Facebook forum where they warmly connect with readers, fans, and the curious, answering questions and sharing additional memories and ephemera.

Poorly written- I wanted to like tales of on the road-They should have brought in a Kiss author like Ken Sharp to help craft.
The roadies had 40 years to concisely get it all out in an enjoyable form but didn't deliver.
They should have spent more time on detailed content than the Cool Cover art
I purchased on amazon to avoid the $10 shipping fee- not worth $35-$40
This is a retirement plan for the roadies who no doubt broke their asses & got screwed by a management & band that tossed them aside once famous.. You should have consulted Lydia Criscuola- on how she concisely made her book of road life entertaining.
Even if you're not a huge KISS fan, this book may be of interest to you from the standpoint of what these guys had to put up with, go through, and survive. As fans, we rarely think about what it takes to put on a concert, especially one with as much production as a KISS show. While the production value of the band's show is not new any more, back in the early 70s, they were really at the forefront of giving fans something to SEE as well as hear. And TOKK (The Original KISS Krew) made it all happen.
