PAUL STANLEY Says His Upcoming Second Book Is 'Almost A Companion To The First'

KISS frontman Paul Stanley spoke to Philadelphia's WTXF about his upcoming second book, the follow-up to his 2014 autobiography, "Face The Music: A Life Exposed". "The second book is almost, in a sense, a companion to the first, and maybe what it goes into more is how I accomplished what I've accomplished and what my approach is," he said (see video below). "I'm certainly not preaching to people and telling people, 'Do this,' but I think people can get some insight into what's possible for them by seeing what I've done. I don't think we accomplish much by telling people, 'If I were you, I would do…' Because when you do that, first of all, well, you're not me — you've never lived a moment in my shoes — so [it's] much more important that you figure out for yourself. But I think we can all learn something from what other people do. So what I've tried to do in the book is express my point of view and how I got from point A all the way to point Z."

According to Amazon, Stanley's second book is titled "Backstage Pass: The Starchild's All-Access Guide To The Good Life" and will arrive in June 2019 via HarperOne, HarperCollins's San Francisco-based unit that specializes in publishing books in religion, spirituality, and personal growth.

Official book overview: "The New York Times bestselling author and legendary frontman and rhythm guitarist of KISS offers grants fans an all-access backstage pass to his personal life, and shows them how to pursue a royal rock 'n' roll lifestyle of their own, offering hard-won advice and rules to live by from a rock 'n' roll legend.

"In this follow-up to his popular bestseller 'Face The Music', the Starchild takes us deeper into his personal life and his home today, life on and off the stage, revealing what he eats, drinks, and does with his friends and family, [what] he's learned from a lifetime at the frontman of the iconic band KISS, and how he brings his unique sensibility not only to his superstar music career but to every area of his life — from the business to parenting to health and happiness. kitchen and the bar to the gym and the office.

"Showcasing his unique lifestyle, 'Backstage Pass' is a rare look at the man beneath the modern rock god persona. Paul shares fascinating details about his life — his fitness routine, philosophy, business principles, how he finds inspiration, passion, and joy after nearly 50 years filling arenas and selling out shows, and even his favorite meals, and includes recipes from friends such as Anthony Bourdain, Rocco DiSpirito, Mario Batali, and other star chefs.

"'Backstage Pass' divulges more true stories of the rock legend's relationships, hardships, and wild nights, 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 frontmen in history — and a model superstar for the modern age.

"This is the book for fans who love living large, but also want to kick ass at everyday life. From doing shots at the bar to enjoying a glass of red on the patio, Paul shows you how you can rock 'n' roll all night and party every day — without missing a beat or looking like you do."

Released in April 2014, "Face The Music: A Life Exposed" debuted at No. 2 on The New York Times' Best Sellers list for Print Hardcover Non-Fiction. On top of that, "Face The Music" debuted on the Times' Combined Print and E-Book best seller list and E-Book best sellers list at No. 3 and No. 13, respectively.
