KISS founding members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons appeared yesterday (Tuesday, September 10) at the Barnes & Noble store in Staten Island, New York to sign copies of their new book, “Nothin’ To Lose: The Making Of Kiss (1972-1975)”

Stanley and Simmons signed only books, not memorabilia, according to

Those wanting to meet Stanley and Simmons had to buy the book at the store at its $29.99 list price, starting at 9 a.m. They received a colored wristband that determined their place in line for the 7 p.m. book-signing event, and were given a recommended time to return with their book and receipt.

“Nothin’ To Lose: The Making Of Kiss (1972-1975)” was released on September 10 via It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

Written by Ken Sharp, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, “Nothin’ To Lose: The Making Of KISS (1972-1975)” is a 544-page hardcover book that chronicles for the first time the crucial formative years of the legendary rock band KISS, culminating with the groundbreaking success of their classic 1975 album “Alive!” and the smash single “Rock And Roll All Nite”, a song that nearly four decades later remains one of the band’s most enduring anthems.

Drawing on more than 200 interviews, the book offers a captivating and intimate fly-on-the-wall account of their launch, charting the struggles and ultimate victories that led them to the threshold of super-stardom. Constructed as an oral history, the book includes original interviews with Paul Stanley, Gene, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss, as well as producers, engineers, management, roadies, costume and stage designers, fans, and musical contemporaries from the time, including: original manager Bill Aucoin, Casablanca Records founder Neil Bogart, rock photographer Bob Gruen, promoter Ron Delsner, Ted Nugent, Dick Clark, Alice Cooper, Marshall Crenshaw, and Bob Seger, as well as members of AEROSMITH, BLACK SABBATH, RUSH, STYX, NAZARETH, SLADE, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, URIAH HEEP, MOTT THE HOOPLE, NEW YORK DOLLS, RAMONES, and THE QUATTROS, among others. The end result is an indelible and irresistible portrait of a band on the rise and the music scene they changed forever.

British crossover thrashers SSS are due to be featured in an episode of a new music series called “No Sleep Till,” brought to you by Vice and Vans.

No Sleep Till offers a candid, fly-on-the-wall view of life on tour, through the eyes of four of the most explosive bands on the circuit. The series follows SSS, Cerebral Ballzy, The Bronx, and Trash Talk or 24 hours each, giving fans an inside view of the guys behind the bands, the music they’ve dedicated their lives to making, and the fun, carnage and chaos involved in being a band on tour.

SSS bassist MARK MAGILL comments: “Vice Magazine and Vans asked us if they could follow us around for a day. We said yes, they pointed their cameras at us and we wished we lived a life of rock ‘n’ roll excess, so that we’d be more interesting to watch than the normal people we actually are. We discovered that we’re pretty good at clay pigeon shooting and North Wales is very depressing in December. We didn’t win at bingo, either.”

Keep an eye out for the episode featuring SSS on March 14th. Watch the No Sleep Till trailer at this location.

SSS’ new album, Problems to the Answer, features 25 snarling tracks and is available now worldwide on CD and limited edition picture disc LP.
