Given it involves KISS, the book has been billed as being "from sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll to multiple brushes with death.” Criss – born Peter John Criscuola - is keeping things more low-key. A statement from the drummer/songwriter/author says he is speaking more about “the whole man” and not just his rock’n’roll life.
"I am so blessed that I am finally going to write my autobiography, and I hope you enjoy the ride," says Criss. "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.”
Even so, you can expect a rollercoaster read. Criss promised his mom he’d one-day play Madison Square Garden. And he did it. Criss wrote and sang “Beth,” one of KISS’s best-loved hits. He went through drug abuse, subsequent treatment in 1982, near-suicides, two broken marriages, and a hard-won battle with breast cancer. It’s not going to be dull.
