HOWEVER, it's not a casual read for the rock fan who's looking for a general history of the band. This is for the hard core only. I paid about USD $50.00 for my used copy, but I didn't glean too much backstory that I couldn't have read in several other, more readily available (and therefore less expensive) books on the market. If you want the touring history of the band, this is the last word on the subject. It's all here, in meticulous detail. Every show, every venue, seating capacity, number of tickets sold, etc.
For so long we've heard Gene & Paul's re-visionist history of the band, so it's great to hear other perspectives. While these stories may not be 100% accurate either, when pieces of stories from other KISS books are added to these, you get a more complete picture.
There are a lot of funny stories in here, that make the band more relatable and less iconic. It's also funny to realize how often, even during the Reunion Tour that Gene set his hair on fire.
Worth every cent you'll spend on it!
But it's not dry! The book is incredibly informative and a hugely entertaining read for hardcore KISS fans. It's built into sections, tour by tour, where every single gig is documented - date, venue, attendance, setlist, and even whether it's known to have been archived on audio and/or video. In addition, there's a short piece about the album relevant to every tour, and the evolution of the stage production is covered in detail. In short, this is a priceless source of information about KISS tours - setlists and production details beyond anything else available.
If you're a KISS nerd, like me, do not hesitate! Buy this!
