There is only one original member of KISS who has yet to release an autobiography. That will change on April 8 with Paul Stanley’s ‘Face The Music: A Life Exposed’ by HarperCollins. Paul recently said this about the book:

“Y’know, rock n’ roll autobiographies tend to be a love letter — to the author. And they tend to be about how smart and creative and how this person was responsible for the creation of the world. And if that were the tact for the book, I never would’ve written the book.”

“My book is about my life starting from the very beginning and certainly a certain amount of adversity and having a birth defect and being deaf on one side and the family that I came from,” he said. “Certainly people have had more adversity in their lives — and some less — but I, I would think some people would get a certain amount of inspiration and a sense that positivity and belief in yourself will ultimately lead you to a great place.”

Some fellow artists shared their thoughts on the autobiography:
“Both honest and inspirational. Amazing tales from one of rock’s great frontmen.” – Sir Elton John

“Paul Stanley proves himself as an artist in music and on canvas and now with a great book.” – Jimmy Page

“Paul is a great man who has achieved great things. From the Popcorn Club all the way to the Hall of Fame, his story is inspiring and motivating for anyone who dreams big.” – Dave Grohl
