page to see them.
STAR MAN : The right hand man of rock'n'roll
You may not know the Star Man, but you know his clients: Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Frank Sinatra, Bon Jovi, Cher, George Michael, Kiss... For thirty years Michael Francis has worked with the biggest names in the music industry, as a bodyguard, fixer, confidante and friend.
A band of amazing stature, Kiss have got one hell raising reputation to sustain, and as Michael has seen first hand, there's no smoke without fire, even if it is staged by a pyro team!
But what's life really like on the road with four middle aged men in make-up? Where does hype end and business begin? Who are the smart guys that drive the Kiss phenomenon? Is it true about Gene and those thousands of girls? How spaced out is 'The Space Ace', and who's the face behind the make up if it isn't him? What happened the night Ace got shot and Michael found a SWAT team outside his hotel room?
STAR MAN : The Right Hand Man of Rock'n'Roll will be available in hardback in the UK from 1st September 2003 priced £16.99. Published by Simon and Schuster. Visit the official website to pre-order your copy.

|Shout It Out Loud on Kerrang!|
Kerrang! seem to be making it hard to vote for "Shout It Out Loud" with little advertising of it's video number. However, I finally got to vote and see it last night. It was well worth the £1 phone call! For those who don't know, it's video number 902...Get dialling!
|KISS on RI:SE again!|
|Last friday KISS made it
onto the Entertainment news on RI:SE again - this time some news
about the KISS/Aerosmith tour with a short clip of Rock &
Roll All Nite. We salute you Iain Lee!
|8th August 2003 RI:SE To It!|
didn't Ash from Dressed To Kill have good reason to RI:SE To It
after he had the lurvely Kate Lawler playing with
his hair live on RI:SE! Dressed To Kill's Ash & Danny were
invited onto the show as special guests and done their part in
keeping KISS in the UK public eye. In Ash's own words:-
"We were treated like Kings, and were given the opportunity to be seen by 4-700,000 peopl! How grateful are We???? We were, and are
constantly in a unique position, and owe a debt of gratitude to everyone that keeps turning out to
support us. We therefore HAVE to do our duty, not simply to ourselves, but to as many others as is
possible. 'RI:SE' is doing a great job of doing some serious KISS Army flag-waving- testament to the
open mindedness of the production team as much as anything else. Iain needs to be rewarded
somehow." (presenter Iain Lee is a massive KISS fan).
|5th August 2003 Dressed To Kill on RI:SE!|
Dressed To Kill]
Set your video recorders for 7am until 9am Wednesday cuz U MIGHT just see Ash (Paul) and Danny (Ace) of DRESSED TO KILL appearing on Channel 4's breakfast show 'RI:SE', hosted by Massive KISS fan Iain Lee, and Big Brother winner Kate Lawler. It looks like there's going to be a 3 or 4 minute 'slot', to include an interview with Ash and Danny in Full make-up and Clobber at some point in the show, and as is ever the way with such programmes, anything else could happen..
So dont miss it!
