Book based on "(Music From) The Elder" to be released Spring 2012


‘Music From The Elder: The Unauthorized Story of the Most Spectacular Failure in the History of Kiss" will be released in the spring of 2012. The book will explore the odd circumstances that led the traditionally hard-rocking band to attempt a classical- and Broadway-influenced concept record about a young boy’s medieval quest to become a warrior (or something), and the effect its commercial failure had on the band.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the release of "(Music From) The Elder," the most bizarre and unsuccessful album ever released by KISS, comes the first chapter of an upcoming book exploring this strange, misguided and yet oddly lovable record.
You can check out the site and read the first chapter, details here at Kiss Elder Book

Sure...alot of people don't consider THE ELDER to be the finest KISS record... but "the Most Spectacular Failure in the History of Kiss"? I think that's a little harsh.
Besides, the Most Spectacular Failure in the History of Kiss was the sham known as the "OPEN for KISS" contest. Ugh. Fixed. Such a shame.
