Paul Stanley's Memoir Hits Number Two On Best Sellers List
Kiss co-founder Paul Stanley is no stranger to the top of the charts -- but even he must be impressed with the response his new autobiography has been getting. Stanley’s revealing life spanning memoir, Face The Music: A Life Exposed, debuted at Number Two on The New York Times' Best Sellers list for Print Hardcover Non-Fiction. On top of that, Face The Music debuted on the Times' Combined Print and E-Book best seller list and E-Book best sellers list at Number Three and Number 13, respectively.
 
In the Face The Music, Stanley talks frankly about his early struggles with hearing -- he was born with Level 3 Microtia and is deaf in his right ear. Microtia is a congenital deformity of the cartilage of the outer ear that can affect normal hearing.
 
Stanley, who grew up half-deaf and scarred with a deformed right ear, eventually had reconstructive surgery in 1982 to create an ear using a piece of his rib cage. We asked Stanley why he kept his ear a secret for so long: "Oh, it was painful. It was too painful. Y’know, you can only reveal things and you can only deal with things when you’re ready to. And my experiences as a child were so debilitating and destructive, that the best way for me to deal with my ear was to cover it and to -- at least on the surface -- ignore what was going on; although when something is invisible to others doesn't mean it’s not visible and very much a part of your life."
