KISS brings 'Monster' to the UK


LONDON (AP) -- American glam rockers KISS are unleashing their Monster on the UK public.

The band -- Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer-- was in London on Tuesday to launch its new retrospective book, KISS Monster, and to hold a news conference.

The limited edition book -- which is three feet tall -- features unseen photographs from the band's 40-year career.

Only 1,000 copies of KISS Monster will be on sale and each one will be signed by the band. It will retail at a staggering $4,299.

"It's not a cheap book because it is hand bound, hand put together. It's the Rolls-Royce of books," said Simmons.
