KISS FAQ -- Dale Sherman

My son became a KISS fan long ago.  I don't know how long, but it was probably in the 1970s.  I remember taking him to a concert by the group in 1985 or so.  He's still a fan after all those years, so the band must have something special.  Dale Sherman has put together a thick book (nearly 350 pages) of what the subtitle tells us is "All that's Left to Know about the Hottest Band in the Land."

You want to know about The Phantom of the Park?  There's plenty of info here.  The best album covers?  Yep.  The most influential concerts?  Sure.  And a ton more.  Lots of B&W illustrations, too. 

This isn't a book to read from cover to cover at one sitting.  It's a book to keep  nearby so you can dip into it when you need something to cheer you up.  It's so entertaining that even non-fans should get a kick out of it.  Check it out.
