Magic - KISS Kronicles 1973 To 1983 is a new 500 page book chronicling KISS' first 10 years day by day in exhaustive detail, with hundreds of rare unpublished photos and new information.
Magic - KISS Kronicles 1973 To 1983 is a book that provides a day by day account of KISS’ first ten years. Photo sessions, recording sessions, rehearsals, concerts, interviews, TV appearances, band/management meetings, record company meetings, band member travels and other personal activities will all be chronicled in unprecedented detail. This information has been researched and compiled from a variety of sources including all printed material on KISS from the past 42 years (books, magazines, newspapers, fanzines), official Aucoin management paperwork, official Casablanca paperwork, official recording studio log books, hundreds of audio and video interviews, as well as new interviews with photographers, roadies, record executives, costume designers and fans. No other KISS book has ever gathered this much information and organized it in a precise timeline. Every day, every verifiable fact, every KISS fan's dream.
"Magic" will also present an extensive and complete study of KISS makeup, costumes, jewelry, hair styles, musical equipment and stage designs. From the clubs to Creatures, drums to dragon boots, stars to guitars, each variation of KISS' visual impact will be explained in exhaustive detail.
"Magic" will be VERY photo intensive with over 300 rare, never before published images from professional and amateur photographers alike. There will be a story and detailed information to accompany each photo. Please understand, each image will be carefully chosen for MAXIMUM impact. As a photo collector/researcher for 30+ years I feel I am uniquely qualified for this task.
The book itself will be 500 pages, full color, glossy finish, hard cover, 9x12" and stunning. It will be published by Christmas 2020. We've been waiting on this book like Kids waited on new Kiss albums in the 70s! Yes, I was one of those kids! We'll ship this to you for free as well if you're a US KISS Fan! Hopefully this project will be complete by the end of 2021...
