Loved it - thank you for sharing and insight
Paul has been the most interesting and normal guy in the crazy world of KISS. My first concert back in 1977. Enjoyed the stories and insights Paul shares in Backstage Pass. Buy it if you are a fan or not. It’s great either way!
Audio book isn’t read by the author
I only previewed the audiobook. When you have a voice that is as recognizable as Paul Stanley, it’s probably a good idea to record your own audio for your project. The 1-star rating isn’t for the subject matter or the stories, but rather for the out of work actor trying to get into character and be Paul Stanley..... it didn’t work for me. I’m sure the book is good, but this is an “audiobook” review and the presentation & production doesn’t do anything for me. Maybe I’ll change my rating if Paul decides to read it.
