The New York Times bestselling author and front man and rhythm guitarist of KISS grants fans an all-access backstage pass to his personal life and shows them how to pursue a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle of their own, offering hard-won advice from a music legend.


In this follow-up to his popular bestseller Face the Music, the Starchild takes us behind the scenes, revealing what he’s learned from a lifetime as the driving force of KISS, and how he brings his unique sensibility not only to his music career but to every area of his life—from business to parenting to health and happiness.


Fans from all over California & beyond made the pilgrimage to Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles to show their support to the KISS frontman and were able to get their photo with him as they purchased the new book.


The Foster Family made the trek from Atascadero, Calif. to support the Starchild on this day “KISS and their fans are family,” Danny Foster told us when asked about his connection to KISS. “It’s a multigenerational thing for sure” Foster added while motioning to his two young sons, Wife & Mother with stars painted on their faces waiting to meet Paul.


Backstage Pass takes you beyond the makeup as Paul shares fascinating details about his life—his fitness routine, philosophy, business principles, how he maintains his inspiration, passion, and joy after nearly 50 years of mega success including selling out tours, 100 million albums sold and an art career that has amassed over 10 million dollars in sales.


Divulging more true stories of the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s relationships, hardships, and pivotal moments, it also contains intimate four-color, never-before-seen photos from Paul’s personal collection, and offers surprising lessons on the discipline and hard work that have made him one of the healthiest and most successful rock ‘n’ roll icons in history.


This is the book for fans who love living large, but also want to take control and move ahead in everyday life. Paul shows you how you can rock ‘n’ roll all night and party every day—without missing a beat.

What other people are saying


“Part rock ‘n’ roll self-help book, part life tutorial. Fans and non-fans alike will benefit from the how, what, and why of what makes Paul tick. Hell, I picked up a few pointers myself! Paul’s insights on business, family, relationships, and music demonstrate a wisdom equal to his Hall of Fame status.”
TOM MORELLO, Rage Against the Machine musician and activist


“A straightforward, sharply observed book that teaches the lesson that even a life that has turned out enormously well has not always been easy.”
SCOTT TUROW, New York Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent
