Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
"LEGENDARY "founding KISS drummer Peter "Catman" Criss has lived an incredible life in music, from the streets of Brooklyn to the social clubs of New York City to the ultimate heights of rock 'n' roll success and excess.
KISS formed in 1973 and broke new ground with their elaborate makeup, live theatrics, and powerful sound. The band emerged as one of the most iconic hard rock acts in music history. Peter Criss, the Catman, was the heartbeat of the group. From an elevated perch on his pyrotechnic drum riser, he had a unique vantage point on the greatest rock show of all time, with the KISS Army looking back at him night after night.
Peter Criscuola had come a long way from the homemade drum set he pounded on nonstop as a kid growing up in Brooklyn in the fifties. He endured lean years, street violence, and the rollercoaster music scene of the sixties, but he always knew he'd make it. "Makeup to Breakup "is Peter Criss's eye-opening journey from the pledge to his ma that he'd one day play Madison Square Garden to doing just that. He conquered the rock world--composing and singing his band's all-time biggest hit, "Beth" (1976)--but he also faced the perils of stardom and his own mortality, including drug abuse, treatment in 1982, near-suicides, two broken marriages, and a hard-won battle with breast cancer.
Criss opens up with a level of honesty and emotion previously unseen in any musician's memoir. "Makeup to Breakup "is the definitive and heartfelt account of one of rock's most iconic figures, and the importance of faith and family. Rock 'n' roll has been chronicled many times, but never quite like this.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great gift for a KISS fanatic I was so happy to find this book online at such a great price. My boyfriend is a huge KISS fan and this book came out just in time for his birthday. He had found the book in a store here in Omaha for twice the price and was holding out until the price dropped a bit. Now he doesnt have to wait. 11/24/2012
