According to the New York Post, the memoir by Kiss guitarist Paul Stanley, Face the Music, details anti-Semitism from bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss.
Even more shocking are his accusations of anti-Semitism against the pair. Noting that Frehley owned a collection of Nazi memorabilia, and that some of his earliest experiences with Criss involved the drummer racially mocking waiters at Chinese restaurants, Stanley writes that Frehley and Criss resented him and Simmons for controlling the band’s creative output — which Stanley says occurred because Frehley and Criss’ songwriting contributions “just didn’t amount to much.”

The Rolling Stones favorite American food? Something they made up called "Hot Dogs on the Rocks." It's hot dogs, mashed potatoes, and baked beans. The recipe comes from a 1967 "scene-makers cook book" called Singers & Swingers in the Kitchen. A few things: first, yeah, it's the cold medicine and coffee mixture that led to me posting this, and two, we absolutely need a version of this for the current music world. I want to know all about Bieber's brats and Jesse Lacey's "Sic Transit Pulled Pork."

Bruce Swedien (the engineer and mixer for many of Michael Jackson's albums) released a book earlier this year that we never posted about. I just found out about it through Steve Guttenberg's blog, and he seems to really like it. The book is called The Bruce Swedien Recording Method and it's available on Amazon.
Swedien discusses the importance of studio acoustics, and he prefers to use as little dynamic range compression or equalization as he can on vocals and instruments. Swedien feels that using a lot of compression is an admission you don't know what you're doing. His approach to recording drums struck me as a little unusual, he starts getting the sound first with the kick drum,...

Mike Hranica's (The Devil Wears Prada) new book, Home for Grave, is now available on Amazon.
The story behind the song, Home For Grave tells the tale of Ian Mitchells: a normal man from an ordinary town. Eager to complete his homework as a boy and caring as a young gentleman, Ian is the product of logic and responsibility. However, while his intentions are true and his actions are harmless, the line drawn between Ian’s birth and death is strewn with painful loss and perilous mediocrity: a combination often unnoticed within the somewhat neverending process of life and humanity. Through the stages of youth, love, and death, Mike Hranica lends poetic description to the tragedy of routine...

Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has written a memoir, which is tentatively set to be released in Spring 2014 via Da Capo Press.
While I've dreamed of being a published author almost since I began to read, I never imagined my first book would center around such a sad topic. Sometimes though, life unexpectedly provides you a story that needs to be told. I believe this one does (for several different reasons, not just for the benefit of myself), so I will tell it with the respect and dignity all involved deserve. This will be a good read, I promise you, and I hope some good comes of it.
