Nothin' to Lose: The Making of KISS (1972-1975)
By Ken Sharp with Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons
It Books, 560 pp., $29.99

By Bob Ruggiero

If a 500-plus page oral history about a band which only covers the period before their first hit sounds like it's over the top, it doesn't when you realize that the band is KISS.

Sharp, who also co-wrote official KISS biography Behind the Mask, conducts more than 200 interviews with band members (including former players Ace Frehley and Peter Criss), managers, promoters, journalists, fans, agents, roadies, club owners, costume designers and just about every musician who either opened for KISS or watched helplessly trying to follow their spectacle.

Does the girlfriend of bassist of a long-forgotten local band that once opened for KISS have a story to tell? You betcha.

And while many of the remembrances lapse into repetitiveness to where the reading eyes gloss over -- how driven KISS was, how nobody had seen anything like them before, how they blew everyone else off the stage, how they always knew they were going to make it, etc. -- the little story details about the band's years of struggle are priceless.

Like how Criss' mother would sew stage pants for the band, or Simmons accidentally burned a fan's face during an early fire-breathing experiment, or how Simmons' mother, upon hearing the band would tour Canada, beseeched management, "are you sure he has a sweater?"

GENE SIMMONS: WISHING YOU A MERRY KISS-MAS!

Los Angeles Local News | FOX 11 LA KTTV

Gene Simmons is a football fan and he's bringing football to LA. He talked to Steve and Maria Wednesday about his new Arena Football team the LA KISS and why he and Paul Stanley are venturing into the world of sports and offering season tickets starting at 99 bucks each.

"If you're a football fan and who isn't, you've got to mortgage your home to get a season ticket. You've got to fight traffic to get into a stadium filled with other fans...what a crime that Los Angeles, the second biggest market in the entire North American continent, does not have a football team...we're gonna be bringing it to you because Los Angeles deserves a football team."

Gene says he and Paul are using their fame to showcase what they consider a sport that is too often overlooked.
