From February 16, 2017

With your host:

Pat Francis

Well hello there, fellow Rock Solid fans! Andrew Rich here. Do you remember some weeks back when Pat Francis and three of his friends got together in front of a live audience and read excerpts from the four original Kiss members' autobiographies? Then consider yourselves some lucky ducks because it's time for VOLUME 2! This episode was recorded from San Francisco Sketchfest a few weeks back. Unfortunately, one James Horatio Pardo (the man who read from Peter Criss' book in Vol. 1) was not able to attend this superstar session. But luckily Pat found a willing (maybe?) replacement in Cole Stratton, one of the co-founders of the festival, a master improviser, and a funny, funny man. So here was the lineup was Volume 2:

  • Pat Francis reads from Paul Stanley's Face the Music: A Life Exposed
  • Cole Stratton reads from Peter Criss' Makeup to Breakup: My Life In and Out of Kiss
  • Dave Holmes reads from Gene Simmons' Kiss & Make-Up
  • Wayne Federman reads from Ace Frehley's No Regrets - A Rock 'N' Roll Memoir

As I mentioned in the show notes for Volume 1, this isn't really the type of episode that is conducive to a full recap because it would just be transcribing book passages. So I'll be taking this week off. In the meantime, listen to this episode. Swim in it. Breathe in these literary masterpieces through your earholes. Trust me, you'll be a better human being because of it.

A belated Happy Valentine's Day and I'll see you next week for Episode 293.
