What's it like to be best friends with a Rock and Roll legend?
Bob McAdams and Gordon G.G. Gebert have been asked that question more times than they care to remember, each having the dubious distinction of being members of the KISS inner circle.
People never seem to get enough of all their outrageous stories and finally after re-telling these tales about Ace Frehley and KISS for the umpteen thousandth time - Bob and Gordon decided to tell their stories one last time in "KISS and Tell!"
This book exposes the hidden reality of some of Rock and Roll's most excessive characters:
* Gene Simmons * Paul Stanley * Ace Frehley * Peter Criss *
Boh McAdams became Paul "Punky" Frehley's closest childhood friend around 1963 and remained friends to adulthood where each served as Best Man at each other's weddings.
Gordon G.G. Gebert became Bob's successor as "best friend and cohort" with Ace in 1985 until Gordon and Ace's controversial falling out in 1993.
Together, they have put to pen the most fascinating expose' in recent memory, full of candid details surrounding the lives of rock and roll's most secretive band, whose superstar status was perhaps the least interesting aspect of their twisted persona. Yes, it's about the power, fame, money, sex and madness associated with rock and roll and the lives of those who came in contact with these living legends (and everything you'd expect from the world's greatest rock band on the planet.) But better still, there is a comic insanity in these episodes that go beyond cartoon characters or the fictional members of Spinal Tap than actual human beings. "KISS and Tell" is the epitome of the classic cliche "Truth is stranger than fiction!"
Here is a "behind the scenes" view of KISS with inside stories they wouldn't want you to know.
