Paul Stanley Working On Second Book

KISS' Paul Stanley is planning a follow-up to his 2014 memoir Face The Music: A Life Exposed.

Stanley posted a message on Facebook showing a photo of the New York City skyline, with the message, "NYC. Meetings for the follow-up to my #2 NY Times Best-seller now in 6 languages! You won't be disappointed where the next takes us together."

There's no word yet on a title or publication date.

In Face The Music Stanley wrote about his upbringing, including being deaf on one side due to a birth defect, as well as the inner workings of KISS. He told us at the time that writing a book -- much less more than one -- was something he never anticipated:

"The truth of the matter is I had sworn for literally decades not to write an autobiography; I always go back to George Orwell, who always said the autobiography is the most outrageous form of fiction...What I finally came to grips with was the idea that my life could be inspiring to other people and perhaps in the same way that through my work with charities has helped other people, perhaps reading about my own life might encourage someone else. And almost more importantly I wanted something that my children could read when they got older to understand what it took for me to succeed and a better understanding of who I am and perhaps what they need in their lives to move forward."

 

Stanley and KISS are playing two Nevada dates this weekend -- Friday (April 21) in Reno and Saturday (April 22) in Laughlin) -- before starting a European tour on May 1 in Moscow.
