A New Book about KISS

posted by Nell Minow

My publishing company, Miniver Press, is delighted to announce the publication of All I Need to Know I Learned from KISS: Life Lessons from the Hottest Band in the Land, from Chris Epting, with an introduction from Stone Temple Pilot’s Robert DeLeo that includes his own teenage fan drawings.   Epting was recently interviewing rock legends KISS when it suddenly flashed before his eyes that, bizarre as it might seem, the band he had loved since childhood actually played a huge part in shaping how he looks at the world. In that instant, he decided to write about his life long journey with the band, starting out in the early 1970s when he joined the KISS Army and continuing until today. Epting takes us through the history of KISS, weaving in historic tidbits and trivia with his personal observations, while laying out the rules for living that he absorbed from “the hottest band in the land.” Insightful, touching, and inspiring, the book is already on the Kindle Music Book best-seller list.
