Criss has written the book with the help of Larry “Ratso" Sloman. "From sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll to multiple brushes with death, 'Makeup to Breakup' will be Peter Criss' unvarnished and eye-opening life story," according to the publisher’s press release.
"I am so blessed that I am finally going to write my autobiography, and I hope you enjoy the ride," Criss said in the release. "The best of all is I get to share my true feelings of my love for God, family, friends and fame. It's been a wonderful life."
In addition to playing drums in KISS, Criss provided some of the vocals. In fact, he wrote and sang one of the band's biggest hit, the 1976 ballad "Beth."
