NEW KISS BOOK FOCUSED ON EARLY YEARS

KISS in 1973
KISS founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are collaborating with rock journalist Ken Sharp on "Nothin' To Lose," an oral history of the band's early years, from its founding in 1973 to the 1975 release of its breakout concert album "Alive!"

The book will include interviews with bandmates Criss and Frehley, and many rockers of the era, among others…as well as never-before-published photographs: "KISS is one of the most beloved and influential hard rock bands of the last forty years," says IT Books Editor Denise Oswald. "What is particularly fascinating about this project is about how the band got off the ground, how they came up with the concept of who they were that so defined them and captured the love and imagination of all of their fans. It's also an amazing depiction of New York in the early seventies - its Manhattan, its Queens, you have members of the Ramones, members of Blue Oyster Cult, touring with and playing with KISS. You really get this incredible portrait of a time."
