Mott The Hoople – The Hoople

The Hoople is a 1974 album by the band Mott the Hoople from Britain. It’s the only album to feature guitarist Ariel Bender (who replaced Mick Ralphs following his departure to form Bad Company), and the last album to feature vocalist Ian Hunter before his departure for a solo career.

I’ve had this album since 1974, this band has a different sound but very catchy songs.

Paul Stanley – Face The Music A Life Exposed


This book is a must read for any KISS fan or anyone who enjoys a good read.

The book begins with Paul Stanley telling his life story from the beginning to the present. Wicked Lester was one of his first bands before he became the “Starchild” in KISS.

I’ve grown up with KISS. I remember when their first album came out in the early 70’s. My friends and I were at the Soo Line Piano House looking at new bands that had albums coming out. We ran across the first album by KISS, we were like :”Who the hell are these guys in makeup?” Needless to say I bought the album and have loved KISS ever since.

I played their albums on the turntable in my bedroom over and over. I think my parents and sisters got sick of hearing them. Oh well … their loss my gain!

A definite read for anyone that loves music or just enjoys reading, I devoured this book quickly.
