The Story of Kiss's Destroyer and the Making of an American Icon
Author: James Campion
Publisher: Hal Leonard Corporation
(Book). How does an underground oddity become a cultural phenomenon? For over 40 years, the rock band Kiss has galvanized the entertainment world with an unparalleled blitz of bravado, theatricality, and shameless merchandizing, garnering generations of loyally rabid fans. But if not for a few crucial months in late 1975 and early 1976, Kiss may have ended up nothing more than a footnote. Shout It Out Loud is a serious examination of the circumstance and serendipity that fused the creation of the band's seminal work, Destroyer including the band's arduous ascent to the unexpected smash hit, Alive! , the ensuing lawsuits between its management and its label, the pursuit of the hot, young producer, a grueling musical "boot camp," the wildly creative studio abandon, the origins behind an iconic cover, the era's most outlandish tour, and the unlikely string of hit singles. Extensive research from the period and insights into each song are enhanced by hundreds of archived materials and dozens of interviews surrounding the mid-'70s-era Kiss and its zeitgeist. New interviews with major principals in the making of an outrageously imaginative rock classic animate this engaging tale.
The Integration/Participation Strategies and Sense of Home of First- and Second-Generation Women of Moroccan and Turkish Descent

Women of Moroccan and Turkish descent in the Netherlands are often portrayed as oppressed, non-integrated victims. It is deemed that their Islamic faith and their alleged lack of sense of home in the Netherlands are obstructing their integration. However, this research shows that many women try to integrate, some explicitly because of and not despite Islam. Their definitions, needs, and strategies of integration and their integration experiences vary though, depending on the combination of their generational status, educational level, ethnicity/nationality, and age. This variation is not reflected by policies and how society treats them, which hampers their integration. Furthermore, many women do feel at home in the Netherlands. Nonetheless, the more they integrate, the greater their exposure to assimilative pressures. This can diminish their sense of home, thereby thwarting their integration process.
Everyone loves a song! But what is a song? To pare it back to basics, a song is a three- to five-minute story usually set to music. It generally consists of three or more verses tied together by a chorus. While the music is vital in conveying what the song sounds like and in capturing the listener’s attention, it is the lyrics and the vocalist’s interpretation of them that tell the story. In Just Add Music, or JAM, David J McMullen has compiled the lyrics to fit most popular genres of music, including but not limited to rock, pop, blues, country, Caribbean and adult contemporary. JAM is a book of 55 sets (Top 50 Plus 5) of song lyrics written for composers, producers and musicians to add the music to complete each song.

The self-proclaimed “Hottest Band in the World,” KISS is one of the most popular groups in the history of rock, having sold more than 100 million albums during their more than 40–year reign. With more gold albums than any other American band, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. KISS influenced a generation of musicians, from Garth Brooks and Mötley Crüe to Nirvana and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The original leather-clad, makeup-wearing line-up—Ace “Spaceman” Frehley, Gene “Demon” Simmons, Paul “Starchild” Stanley and Peter “Catman” Criss—and their classic hits “Beth” and “Rock and Roll All Nite” are forever etched in pop culture consciousness. This encyclopedia of all things KISS provides detailed information on their songs, albums, tours, television and movie appearances, merchandise, solo work and much more, including replacement members Eric Carr, Vinnie Vincent, Bruce Kulick, Mark St. John, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer.
Tony Bell...Kiss Army membership number Z2192 - is a hopeless case, who fell in love with rock music during his teenage years. He was desperate for a piece of what was happening, and he wanted it right there and then. So, he borrowed Wylie Coyote's rocket powered roller skates, picked up a guitar and lit the fuse. Nobody told him that the road to rock and roll stardom curved as the canyon approached, and it really was a long way down. His fall was cushioned by some great times, and some great friends. By the time he hit the bottom, he had managed to open a beer, and tease his hair perfectly. When the dust settled, he picked up his pen, opened another beer and wrote it all down.

Extrem gut und unglaublich gelungen – der neue Roman von Jonathan Safran Foer Wie wunderbar er erzählen kann, hat Jonathan Safran Foer schon in seinem ersten Roman Alles ist erleuchtet bewiesen. Mit der unvergesslichen Geschichte des kleinen Oskar Schell, der am 11. September den Vater verloren hat, zeigt Foer erneut sein literarisches Können. Ein mutiges Buch, gefühlsstark, traurig und komisch zugleich. Oskar Schell ist neun Jahre alt. Wie er auf seiner Visitenkarte mitteilt, ist er Pazifist, Erfinder, Schmuckdesigner, Tamburinspieler. Vor allem aber ist er tief traurig und verstört über den Tod seines Vaters. Mit dem Tamburin läuft Oskar durch New York, auf der Suche nach einem Türschloss, in das ein geheimnisvoller Schlüssel aus den Hinterlassenschaften des Vaters passen könnte. Auf dieser Odyssee begegnet Oskar, der den Grund für den sinnlosen Tod des Vaters herausfinden will, vielen ungewöhnlichen Menschen und gerät in aberwitzige Abenteuer. Verbunden mit Oskars Geschichte ist die seiner deutschen Großeltern, die nach der Bombardierung Dresdens, gezeichnet von Trauer und Verlust, nach New York geflüchtet sind. Drei Schicksale, drei Stimmen. Foer gelingt es, das bewegende Schicksal einer Familie darzustellen und zu zeigen, dass Schmerz und Komik, Sprachlosigkeit und Absurdität unglaublich nah beieinander liegen. Der Text ist durchzogen von Bildern, die Oskars Vorstellungen illustrieren und vertiefen. Extrem laut und unglaublich nah ist ein literarisches Ereignis. Extrem laut und unglaublich nah erscheint in über 12 Ländern. Der Titel erscheint als Hörbuch im Argon Verlag.
