ORIGINAL KISS CREW RELEASES NEW KISS BOOK "OUT ON THE STREETS"

With the release of Out On the Streets: The True Tales of Life on the Road With the Hottest Band in the Land...KISS!" ($29.95) the band's millions of fans worldwide will finally get an up-close and behind-the-curtain look at KISS's formative years on the road.

This highly detailed 347-page book comes directly from the collective efforts of JR Smalling, Peter Oreckinto, Rick Munroe and the late Mick Campise, who comprised the core of the band's original road crew from 1974 - 1976. In Out on the Streets the four share an intimate and inside look at life on the road with KISS, and detail what it took to lay the foundation for one of the most spectacular and successful rock bands in history.

Out on the Streets digs into the dirt, the blue-collar work ethic, and the crew's unwavering loyalty to KISS's ridiculous "biggest band in the world" pipedream. The four authors spin tales of fighting headline acts like Aerosmith just to get in and out of gigs, logging over 90,000 road miles in 1974 alone, wrestling with thieves and warding off racism. There's violent tragedy on a personal level, mind-numbing hours and days without rest, bullet-ridden vehicles, arrests, abject poverty, catalogs of carnal pursuits, broken promises and ultimately a skyrocket of success.

Rare photos, original itineraries, and detailed production schematics are just a few of the perks that litter the pages of this rich and rewarding memoir.

1974 "HOTTER THAN HELL" STUDIO LOG BOOK AMONG AUCTION ITEMS
A one-of-a-kind KISS daily log book from KISS' Hotter Than Hell recording sessions, a 1974 set list/guitar picks collection from KISS' first roadie Eddie Solan, various misprint Casablanca Records vinyl LPs, a large collection of mega-rare 1970s Performance Magazine print ads-including the first national KISS cover story from January 1975 and an assortment of 1973 newspaper clippings from the band’s club days, highlight the first round of EliteWorks KISS auctions which are live now.

All 30+ EliteWorks Auctions end Sunday, January 12, just as another round of auctions go live.

eBay seller EliteWorks began integrating its auctions with never-before-seen vintage footage on YouTube in 2010. This highly successful pairing has resulted in over 2,000 rock memorabilia auctions sold, with a 93% sell-through rate. EliteWorks auctions have been promoted everywhere from Sirius XM to Rolling Stone.com to Blabbermouth.net and years later are still frequently referenced on various music/collector Internet message boards.
