Some bands—through a magical combination of talent, timing and luck—stake a claim to musical immortality almost immediately. That was not the case with KISS. For a long time, the band members themselves—Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss—were KISS’s biggest fans. They invented onstage alter egos, crafted do-it-yourself, glittery logo T-shirts, and played any club that would have them with absolute commitment. The result: fame and riches, which was pretty fortunate, because for KISS there was no plan B. Today the band has sold more than 100 million records—30 of their albums have gone gold and 14 went platinum. Many critics used to consider the band a joke—a carnival sideshow of smoking guitars, over-the-top pyrotechnics, cartoonish costumes and blood-spitting. But with the passage of time, KISS has come to represent something much more meaningful. Beneath the makeup, smoke and mirrors, that trifecta of determination is what KISS has always been about. This is their story.

Spinning Gold tells the unbelievably true story of music industry's most colorful and brilliant music producer, Neil Bogart, founder of Casablanca Records. Along with a rag tag team of young music lovers, Neil and Casablanca Records would rewrite history and change the music industry forever—igniting the careers of legendary icons like Donna Summer, Parliament, Gladys Knight and KISS, whose mix of creative insanity shaped our culture and ultimately defined a generation. In a story so incredible that it can only be true, comes the motion picture event that created and inspired the greatest soundtrack of our lives.

I regret to bring you some bad news. My friend from Berlin, Roman Schwarz, peacefully passed away on April 22, 2023. He had cancer.
He was also a huge KISS fan, especially of Eric Singer! I experienced many KISS concerts with Roman. I traveled with Roman to Japan, the USA, and many other countries to see KISS. In 1995, I worked with Roman for three weeks in the USA, setting up the stage for KISS. He was 56 years old.
