Synopsis

"People say I was brave to write such a revealing book, but I wrote it because I needed to personally reflect on my own life. I know everyone will see themselves somewhere in this book, and where my story might take them is why I'm sharing it."

Well known for his onstage persona, the "Starchild," Paul Stanley has written a memoir with a gripping blend of personal revelations and gritty war stories about the highs and lows both inside and outside of KISS. Born with a condition called microtia (an ear deformity rendering him deaf on the right side), Stanley's traumatic childhood experiences produced an inner drive to succeed in the most unlikely of places: music. Taking readers through the series of events that led to the founding of KISS, the personal relationships that helped shape his life, and the turbulent dynamics among his bandmates over the past forty years, this book leaves no one unscathed—including Stanley himself.

With never-before-seen photos and images throughout, Face the Music is a colorful portrait of a man and the band he helped create, define, and sustain—made larger than life in artfully told stories that are shocking, funny, inspirational, and honest.

"Enthralling"
July 9th, 2014
A truly inspiring book, through hard times, fame,success and Perseverance , the man behind the makeup tells it all . I would of never thought his personal journey could've been such a ride! His dedication to his music and KISS has stood the test of time. To share his path to us just gave a clearer understanding that life was not easy and " it's not a crime to be good to yourself" For 40 years of great music to inspire fans is truly a awesome gift to us all, Thanks Paul, God bless
