Peter Criss Reveals Cover for New Autobiography

Peter Criss Makeup to Breakup
Simon & Schuster

Original Kiss drummer Peter Criss has revealed the cover art for his forthcoming autobiography, ‘Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of Kiss.’

The book, published by Simon & Schuster, is scheduled for an October 2012 release and promises to be an “unvarnished” look at the sex, drugs and rock n’ roll world that Criss lived in for so long. The cover features a headshot of Criss wearing his famous “Catman” makeup and costume.

Co-written with famed rock author Larry “Ratso” Sloman, ‘Makeup to Breakup’ chronicles Criss’ rise from his Brooklyn roots to being a member of one of the world’s biggest rock groups up to his recent cancer scare. Criss, who has been cancer-free for over four years, discussed his health issues in great detail in Ultimate Classic Rock’s interview with him last fall.

“I am so blessed that I am finally going to write my autobiography, and I hope you enjoy the ride,” Criss said.  “The best of all is I get to share my true feelings of my love for God, family, friends and fame. It’s been a wonderful life.”

However, the 66-year old Criss does not see a return to Kiss following his most recent departure from the band in 2004, preferring to enjoy the simpler life these days. “I’ve been taking it easy, I’ve been enjoying my life,” he said in January. “I live on the Jersey shore, I kind of go to the gym every day. My alley cat ways are over. I’ve become a domestic cat.”
