If you've got cool pics, articles, ticket stubs or other stuff like that, you might have a chance to be a part of a new book chronicling the band's early years. KISS put a call out to the fans announcing that they're looking for unique visual and print materials on the band from the early-to-mid-'70s. Read on... they might just want what you got!
