It's probably about time.

KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are collaborating on a memoir that will detail the band's early years, between 1973-1975.

The memoir Nothin' To Lose will also be written along with rock journalist Ken Sharp and will go through the band's experience through the release of their breakout album Alive! that included their hit Rock and Roll All Night.

The book will also feature interviews with bandmates Peter Criss and Ace Frehl as well as other rockers from the '70s era.

IT Books Editor Denise Oswald spoke about the book's release:

"KISS is one of the most beloved and influential hard rock bands of the last forty years. What is particularly fascinating about this project is about how the band got off the ground, how they came up with the concept of who they were that so defined them and captured the love and imagination of all of their fans. It's also an amazing depiction of New York in the early seventies–its Manhattan, its Queens, you have members of The Ramones, members of Blue Oyster Cult, touring with and playing with Kiss. You really get this incredible portrait of a time."

With so many wild stories about KISS' early years, we can imagine that the book should get pret-ty inneresting.

    Yeah, like this book won't be the biggest piece of self-serving bullshit you'll ever not read. I can't wait for the chapter where they discuss how Gene and Paul royally fucked over Ace and Peter.

    Haven't they already published about 8 memoirs? I'm sure I've got one of Gene's biographies sitting in the cupboard someone. Wasn't a bad read actually. Better than their music. They should get some sort of marketing award - maybe for "best flogging of a dead horse".

    Funny KISS story … they recently played in my city of Prince George, BC, Canada … they stayed at the Ramada Hotel, downtown. Sources at the hotel claim that all the band members kept pretty clean rooms … except Gene Simmons … upon entering, there was a horrid smell throughout his room and after further investigation, the cleaning ladies found that in the laundry basket were several faces clothes that he used to wipe his ass with!!!! Full of shit! SICK … gotta wonder if he does that at home? LOL … his rock star ass must be too good for 2-ply!!

    It won't be any damn good if they spin it. Truth is stranger than fiction. Read 'The Dirt', Motley Crue's tell all for more clarity on this point.
