Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Paul Stanley proves himself as an artist in music and on canvas and now with a great book.” (Jimmy Page)

“Both honest and inspirational. Amazing tales from one of rock’s great frontmen.” (Sir Elton John)

“Paul is a great man who has achieved great things. From the Popcorn Club all the way to the Hall of Fame, his story is inspiring and motivating for anyone who dreams big.” (Dave Grohl)

“An entertaining yet piercingly honest journey from self–conscious child to the world’s most visually famous rock band, to, finally—with the makeup wiped away—a place of peace as a father and a man. Paul Stanley’s story is both ordinary and extraordinary, which makes it inspiring.” (Mitch Albom, author of The First Phone Call From Heaven and Tuesdays With Morrie)

“For years the members hid their true identities behind cartoon personas and hard rock anthems... After years of carefully maintaining his Starchild superhero identity, Stanley lets down his guard and unleashes a torrent of pent-up feelings that erupt and flow over 400 pages like molten lava.” (Guitar World Magazine)

“KISS’ flamboyant “Starchild” unplugs his high-wattage amps and introduces fans to an even more intriguing character: Stanley Harvey Eisen... [Face the Music is] an indispensable part of KISStory.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Elegantly and thoughtfully, Stanley takes us behind the mask of Starchild, his KISS persona, and shares intimately his own insecurities about his physical appearance and his emotional life.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Most people will probably not associate sensitivity with the flamboyant heavy-metal rock band KISS, and yet in his memoir, front man, rhythm guitarist, and cofounder Paul Stanley succeeds in making a connection with the reader, KISS fan or not.” (Booklist)

Présentation de l'éditeur


In Face the Music, Paul Stanley—the co-founder and famous “Starchild” frontman of KISS—reveals for the first time the incredible highs and equally incredible lows in his life both inside and outside the band. Face the Music is the shocking, funny, smart, inspirational story of one of rock’s most enduring icons and the group he helped create, define, and immortalize.

Stanley mixes compelling personal revelations and gripping, gritty war stories that will surprise even the most steadfast member of the KISS Army. He takes us back to his childhood in the 1950s and ’60s, a traumatic time made more painful thanks to a physical deformity. Born with a condition called microtia, he grew up partially deaf, with only one ear. But this instilled in him an inner drive to succeed in the most unlikely of pursuits: music.

With never-before-seen photos and images throughout, Stanley’s memoir is a fully realized and unflinching portrait of a rock star, a chronicle of the stories behind the famous anthems, the many brawls and betrayals, and all the drama and pyrotechnics on and off the stage. Raw and confessional, Stanley offers candid insights into his personal relationships, and the turbulent dynamics with his bandmates over the past four decades. And no one comes out unscathed—including Stanley himself.

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.” —Paul Stanley

En tant que fan de KISS, j'avais lu les 3 autres bio (Simmons, Frehley, Criss), et celle-ci me prouve que Paul Stanley est bien l'âme du groupe. Au-delà du star système et de ses dérives, il vit cela comme une forme de thérapie, une quête de lui-même. C'est très touchant et humain. On est loin des défonces systématiques à l'alcool ou la drogue. Le groupe est sa raison de vivre, et il nous le fait bien comprendre. Et cela lui permet de s'épanouir pleinement. Tant mieux pour lui !

Enfin, mon idole de toujours a sorti son autobio' et je n'en suis vraiment pas déçu.
Je reste toujours perplexe en constatant combien les liens entre les membres de KISS manquaient de chaleur mais, au moins, Paul ne cherche pas à enjoliver les choses.
Un bouquin honnête et bien écrit; assez facile à lire si votre niveau en Anglais est correct. On apprend des choses très intimes sur le frontman de KISS et ce bouquin vaut largement son prix.

Livre bien écrit par un homme déterminé, honnête et généreux.
Il m'a donné envie de rencontrer l'homme qui se cache sous cette étoile mystérieuse.
Je le recommande à tout les fans de KISS.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A remarkable biography and truly inspiring 14 avril 2014
Par ABQ_Music - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've been a Kiss fan since seeing them on the Paul Lynde Halloween Special in 1976. Since then, I've read everything I could get my hands on, which is easier to do now than in the early 80's, when they couldn't get arrested, much less get the kind of coverage they enjoyed in their 70's heyday.

This is the biography I've waited for. Chris Lendt's reads like a boring financial report. Gene's, although interesting, just smelled of the self-serving rhetoric we already expected from him. And Ace's and Peter's? Well, we original fans love them, but we've also been lied to by those two who can't even remember their own history. Why would we think their bios would reflect difficult-to-face, introspective honesty?

I know someone who worked with Kiss in their earlier days. Years ago, I asked her what Paul Stanley was like in person. Without hesitating a second, she answered, "Incredibly insecure."

I was shocked. How could Paul Stanley, the living, breathing personification of the perfect rock star be insecure? The sex symbol and desire of countless women? Insecure?

This book goes deep into Paul's fears and insecurities. I have never read an autobiography so unflinchingly honest and self-aware - especially from a rock star. Comparing this book to any of the other Kiss bios is an interesting study of contrasts and group dynamics.

Above all, the book is inspiring. Though my rock star dreams are 20 years behind me, this book serves as inspiration to pursue the realistic dreams in front of me, involving family and friends. His vulnerability and sheer will are excellent testaments and I find him a role model miles ahead of the one I admired through the 70's and 80's.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very honest biography from a good human being 10 mars 2017
Par E=mc2 - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I normally don't read rock star biographies, but something compelled me to read this one; perhaps because I had seen this band in the 80's, and Paul Stanley was always my favorite of the 4 characters. It is rare to see such introspection, such vulnerability, and such honesty in a biography, at least from one of these 'rock stars'. I like that he spares you the sordid details about sex that other rock musicians want to tell you about in every minute detail. I like that he did not lose himself, but rather found his way through this madness called the music business. This is a good human being; it all comes through in his writing. I did enjoy listening to some of the songs back in the day, but I have so much more respect for Paul Stanley now, after reading his story. Loved the book!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Paul Seems To Tell It Like It Was...And Is. 9 juillet 2017
Par Jesse Magee - Publié sur

It seems there are three types of Rock Star Biographies: "I survived but it ruined my life", "He died, this is how it ruined his life" and the rarest of all, "I survived and came out reasonably healthy and normal". This is one of the latter.

Paul turns out, unsurprisingly, to be the intelligent, sensitive one. Don't expect minutiae about tours, equipment or particular songs and albums. Those stories are told in detail elsewhere. This is the well written and engaging story of Paul's overcoming a physical handicap (deafness and deformity of an ear) to become one of the biggest stars of the '70s. He holds back very few punches in exposing his take on his bandmates. Having read numerous books by and about KISS I believe I'm more inclined to believe Paul than the others.

Those who aren't fans might be tempted to give this a miss, but if you have any interest in the story of the self described "Hottest Band In The World" told by one who was there, it's worth a read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Different view of Paul now, for sure! 11 novembre 2016

Growing up I was always the Ace character. We used to use my mother's Mary Kay cosmetics and paint our faces. I was never a big Paul fan. Lately, i have been to a few KISS concerts, and they are just ho hum. I like the original lineup, i am old school. However. I am glad I gave Paul's book a chance. I have a total respect for the guy now, and have a better understanding of how Paul interacted in the band. Paul gave it his all and was a big instrumental part of the band. They all provided their part, and Paul gives kudos to the other members. Highly recommended.b

I have read Paul's book several times. It's a very good history of the start of Kiss and I like how he describes the single minded focus that he and Gene had to make their band a success. He talks about his mistakes and his success very honestly.

The book comes off as....a little bit preachy but is also very inspiring. Work hard and persevere at a realistic goal and you can succeed.
