Description

  • memoir from KISS Paul Stanley
  • rhythm guitarist for KISS
  • NEW YORK TIMES and INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

    In Face the Music, Paul Stanley—the co-founder and famous “Starchild” frontman of KISS—reveals for the first time the
    incredible highs and equally incredible lows in his life both inside and outside the band. Face the Music is the
    shocking, funny, smart, inspirational story of one of rock’s most enduring icons and the group he helped create, define,
    and immortalize.

    Stanley mixes compelling personal revelations and gripping, gritty war stories that will surprise even the most
    steadfast member of the KISS Army. He takes us back to his childhood in the 1950s and ’60s, a traumatic time made more
    painful thanks to a physical deformity. Born with a condition called microtia, he grew up partially deaf, with only one
    ear. But this instilled in him an inner drive to succeed in the most unlikely of pursuits: music.

    With never-before-seen photos and images throughout, Stanley’s memoir is a fully realized and unflinching portrait of a
    rock star, a chronicle of the stories behind the famous anthems, the many brawls and betrayals, and all the drama and
    pyrotechnics on and off the stage. Raw and confessional, Stanley offers candid insights into his personal relationships,
    and the turbulent dynamics with his bandmates over the past four decades. And no one comes out unscathed—including
    Stanley himself.

    “People say I was brave to write such a revealing book, but I wrote it because I needed to personally reflect on my own
    life. I know everyone will see themselves somewhere in this book, and where my story might take them is why I’m sharing
    it.” —Paul Stanley
