Swedish Music Journalist To Publish KISS Biography

Swedish music journalist Carl Linnaeus is working on a biography of legendary rockers KISS for release in Sweden in May by Bokfabriken. Entitled "KISS - Den Osminkade Sanningen" ("KISS - The Naked Truth"), the book is described in a press release as "a tribute as well as a critical account of 40 years of rock history, through the ups and down. New, never-before-heard stories and information will be revealed."

Carl has followed KISS for many years while writing cover-feature stories for Sweden Rock Magazine. In addition to having personally met the KISS bandmembers, Carl's story is based on many long interviews with people close to the group. Managers, producers, ex-wives, roadies, past members and session musicians, alongside Carl's vast knowledge about the group and its history makes this an exciting and interesting read for any fan of rock 'n' roll and the American dream.
