It seems a shame that no one has bothered to review this good, early biography of the band. It was published in 1978, right at the height of the band's popularity. Kiss had only existed for about four years at the time, and much of Robert Duncan's work is devoted to the years the band labored in obscurity, attempting to make a name for themselves. There are individual biorgraphys for each of the original band members, and the albums through Love Gun are all reviewed. Duncan seems to have spent lots of time with the band, and his knowledge of events during these key years is pretty extensive. My only quibble with his work comes in the reviews section. For several notable songs, he completely misidentifies the source of the song's vocal. For instance, he credits Paul Stanley with the vocals for the album versions of both "Cold Gin" and "Strange Ways," when they were actually done by Gene Simmons and Peter Criss, respectively. Since the band members repeated their individual vocal performances in concert, this mix up is inexplicable. Never-the-less, this remains a strong work and it is an excellent source of information about the early years of this classic band.
