McFarland Publishers has released a new book, "Encyclopedia Of Kiss: Music, Personnel, Events And Related Subjects". Written by pop culture authority Brett Weiss, it is the world's first encyclopedia on the self-proclaimed "hottest band in the world.""Encyclopedia Of Kiss" is a comprehensive reference guide to virtually everything in the KISS universe, featuring detailed information on the band’s songs, albums, games, toys, tours, television and movie appearances, family members, girlfriends, collectibles, comic books, solo work and much more, including replacement members Eric Carr, Vinnie Vincent, Bruce Kulick, Mark St. John, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer. KISS is one of the most popular groups in the history of rock, having sold more than 100 million albums during their more than 40-year reign. With more gold albums than any other American band, they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2014. KISS influenced a generation of musicians, from Garth Brooks and MÖTLEY CRÜE to NIRVANA and the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. The original leather-clad, makeup-wearing line-up — Ace "Spaceman" Frehley, Gene "Demon" Simmons, Paul "Starchild" Stanley and Peter "Catman" Criss — and their classic hits "Beth" and "Rock and Roll All Nite" are forever etched in pop culture consciousness. You can read the first few pages of "Encyclopedia Of Kiss: Music, Personnel, Events And Related Subjects" on Amazon for free.
