THE MONSTER BOOK IS ALMOST HERE!
KISSONLINE EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK
The KISS Monster book is almost here!

KISS got an up close and personal look at a "finished proof" of the massive KISS Monster book last week and were quite impressed. Gene was quoted as saying, "It's fantastic!" After Paul had his first look he said, "This book is way beyond my expectations. The photos are incredible at this size. It's not a coffee table book, it's a coffee table!"


The KISS Monster book is a retrospective featuring all the different eras of KISS in makeup, starting in the early years and continuing on to present day. "We selected photos that captured the absolute essence of being in and around a KISS concert," says Tommy.

"Ten different editions will be dedicated personally to the KISS Army of the biggest countries we've toured throughout the World," Tommy continues, "each edition will feature a different cover featuring the flag of that nation and inside each book there will be a personally signed, dated and numbered dedication page from the band."

The book is presently being custom printed in Italy at EBS Editoriale Bortolazzi Stei, one of the finest book manufacturers in the world. Each individual copy will be handmade with no machines involved in the finishing and binding of the book. Each book will have a character and feel of its own, at the same time retaining explicit high production standards.

KISS will officially unveil the KISS Monster book in July. Stay Tuned!

THIS DAY IN TORY 1974
KISSONLINE.com
KISS PLAYED ALASKA FOR FIRST TIME

On this day in KISSTORY - June 2, 1974 KISS played Anchorage, Alaska on their first tour in support of the album, KISS. The band performed with Savoy Brown at the Sundowner Drive-In Theatre. This was KISS' only concert in Alaska until they returned over twenty five years later on January 3, 2000.

Paul recalls the visit to Alaska:

"It was surreal to get to Alaska expecting blizzards and polar bears, only to find that with heaters near our boots all over the stage, we would be playing outside! Every time we went too close to the heaters, our guitars went completely out of tune! It was cold out there!

Eric Singer is one of the hardest working musicians in the world of rock music. From working with Alice Cooper, Brian May, and twenty years with KISS, Eric has made quite the name for himself. No matter how in-demand this incredible musician may be, he always takes time to talk to diehard KISS fans (like me) every chance he gets! Today, I am proud to present to you my chat with Eric Singer as we talked about his first album, Revenge, as well as KISS' new studio album, Monster, slated for release this fall! Enjoy!

Eric, I appreciate you taking time to talk to me today. I thought it would be cool to not only look at the past but into the future as well. First, let's go back to 1992....the year of Revenge. This was undoubtedly an exciting time to be a KISS fan: A heavier album and even a darker choice of wardrobe. The 1980's were clearly a thing of the past. My first question is what was it like entering the studio to work with Bob Ezrin? Being a fan of Alice Cooper and KISS in your teenage years plus working with these two bands had to make it very exciting for you?

ES: Getting to record and work with Bob Ezrin was a high water mark for me. He is really great and fun as well as a genius or sorts. It was a very exciting time for me as I was influenced by KISS & Alice Cooper in my formative years for sure.

I've read stories from both Ace Frehley and Bruce Kulick that Ezrin could really crack the whip and take on the role of head coach when it came to working in the recording studio. Do you recall any of those experiences during the recording of Revenge?

ES: I worked with my Father in his band as a kid, so I was used to this type personality and taskmaster ! I just remember Bob was very intense and made you dig inside for things you may not know you were able to produce. A true master.

BRUCE KULICK REMEMBERS ' 'REVENGE' ALBUM
FORMER KISS GUITARIST CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF 'REVENGE'

To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Revenge, all this week I’ll be doing a look back at the album, including my thoughts about each track. Revenge marked the return of KISS in what I consider to be top form. Not that previous albums I was involved in didn’t have highlights and memorable sons and performances, but Revenge was truly meant to be just that…
