Publisher's Summary

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. 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 audiobook, and where my story might take them is why I’m sharing it." (Paul Stanley)

A truly brilliant insight into a rock legend

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It only took me a few days to finish this book, like your favourite tv show I found myself looking forward to the next chapters

Any additional comments?

This is a truly brilliant insight into the life and mind of a rock legend.
His honesty throughout the book and openness to describe his insecurities really cements the fact that the book really doesn't hold back. To be read by Paul himself certainly makes every word believable and credible, its simply story time with Paul. A must read for anyone remotely interested in music, a creative artist or simply a human being born and raised with struggles many in this world deal with. To say I feel inspired by this book is a understatement.
