Rolling Stone has an exclusive excerpt from former KISS drummer Peter Criss’ forthcoming autobiography, Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of KISS, set to hit shelves on October 23.
In the lengthy snippet, the 66-year-old recalls the 1994 Northridge earthquake and how he was living out of a Hollywood apartment with only $100,000 to his name. He shares details of what could have been his suicide, but turned to Christianity instead. You can read more here.
He also writes about the success of “Beth” and KISS’ rise to rock ‘n’ roll stardom – and if this excerpt is any indication, the rest of the book will be packed cover-to-cover with many more too-good-to-be-true-but-it’s-true stories.
