  • Kiss and Make-Up

There would have been no KISS without Gene Simmons, the outrageous star whose superlong tongue, legendary sexual exploits, and demonic makeup have made him a rock icon. KISS and Make-Up is the wild, shocking, unbelievable story, from the man himself, about how an immigrant boy from Israel studied to be a rabbi, was saved by rock and roll, and became one of the most notorious rock stars the world has ever seen.

I listened to this in the car commuting. It was like Gene was sitting in the car with me telling me his story and the birth on The Hotest Band in the World..............I really loved this book.

In a searingly candid memoir that he authored himself, Grammy Award-winning pop icon Rick Springfield pulls back the curtain on his image as a bright, shiny, happy performer to share the startling story of his rise and fall and rise in music, film, and television, and his lifelong battle with depression.

As a Springfield fan, I enjoy the book. I enjoyed that fact that he narrated it. He has a interesting life and had lots of lows as well as highs in his career. I for one am glad the "rope broke"

When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

Interesting story, Some of the characters personalities were impossible to believe. If I heard, "I want him dead, you promised" one more time, I would have screamed. If he wanted him dead so badly, why didn't he do the deed himself. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something was definitely missing. No one had a conscience, except for Ralph and that was way to little to late.

In this hilarious, entertaining, and candid memoir - in which he dishes on everyone from John Belushi and Jerry Lewis to Mel Gibson and Britney Spears - Paul Schaffer gives us the full behind-the-scenes story of his life, from banging out pop tunes on the piano at the age of 12 to leading the band every night at the Sullivan Theater.

Once again Edward Hermann did an outstanding job narrating. Not as good as Presumed Innocent. But I still enjoyed listening to it. I think Rusty thinks he is above all the rules. And the rules don't apply to him.

I couldn't wait for my commute to school and home again. This was my first audio book and I made an excellent choice. Can't wait to listen to the sequel (my next selection) Edward Hermann did an excellent job narrating. I hated to turn off my Ipod, I understand it was made into a movie and the book is old. The story line in the book is not dated. Kept me guessing. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book if you like who done its!
