From the critically acclaimed, and sometime damned Author, Gordon G. G. Gebert, comes his third book, "ROCK & ROLL WAR STORIES" which you now hold in your precious hands. You will never listen to your favorite band again without thinking of these twisted stories.

Musician turned Author, Gordon G. G. Gebert, has done it again. He will take us past the "velvet rope" at warp speed, pinned with a plethora of all-access passes (that would make Wayne and Garth envious), into the utter chaos and mayhem of rock and roll with an uproarious collection of TRUE stories on the road, in the studio, and everywhere else in between. No one will stop you as you will be dragged through the bowels of hell and back whether you like it or not. Gordon, along with Philadelphia’s premiere rock journalist, Lynn Ramage, takes you on an insane rock and roll trip that will keep you reading as if you’ve just seen a train wreck.

Gebert’s previous smash hit books, KISS & Tell and KISS & Tell MORE!, sent the actual members of KISS and die-hard KISS fans reeling when Gebert revealed "the man behind the curtain" in his candid expose’ of Ace Frehley and KISS. One thing critics and fans all agree upon is that KISS & Tell and KISS & Tell MORE are ENTERTAINING MUST-READS!

One way or another, by the end of this tour you’ll know what it takes to be a REAL rock and roll war veteran. It’s as close as you’ll ever get to being part of the entourage. Read it! Live it! Rock on!

From the Publisher:

We are proud to have such a talented writer on our roster. Gordon G. G. Gebert has the incredible proclivity of drawing in and entertaining every reader. We look forward to many entertaining books in the future from this incredibly witty, clever entertainer.

About the Author:

A candid conversation with the musician, turned author, of the most controversial tell-all rock book to come along since "Hammer Of The Gods," "Hit Men," and "I'm With The Band: Confessions of a Groupie".

"Controversy has become my middle name. Can I handle it? The real question is: CAN YOU?"

Author of the hit book KISS & TELL and now a sequel, KISS & TELL MORE!, Gordon G.G. Gebert shows more balls than bill Clinton under fire but with a sense of humor and, unlike the comparison, with a blunt honesty you have to admire.

"I've done more than 200 radio interviews and I truly enjoyed every single one. But I love when an interviewer connects and gets on a roll. It creates magic and great comedy."

When KISS & TELL initially came out, it struck a major nerve in the die-hard KISS fan community and the hate mail poured in.

"You know you've made some kind of impact when you get a shit-load of hate mail. Mother Theresa probably received hate mail. My favorite veiled death threat was 'If you show up at a KISS Convention, you are braver than Salmon Rushdie'.

I didn't know that a KISS fan knew who Salmon Rushdie was."

"From the first page to the last page, I stand by my every word in this book. I took a bad situation and turned it back into my favor. There's nothing wrong with that. My good friends know I wouldn't do this to them unless they really screwed me over big time."

KISS & TELL's straightforward verbiage has the feel of two New Yawkers telling stories in the local bar over a few brews.

"I'm pretty jaded being a well traveled musician from New York, but when a gorgeous female reader approached me to sign my book and, as I placed my John Handcock on it, she enlightened me that she masturbated to orgasm while reading a chapter, I have to admit it, both heads swelled."

Gordon's musical resume had him on stage getting blown up playing keyboards with Motley Crue on night - and the following evening playing with an Elvis impersonator in a local hotel.

"I love performing, entertaining, and creating music. Being creative in anything is the best job in life. If I ever start slinging burgers at the local McDonald's, do me a favor - just shoot me."

"One of the coolest moments in my life was when my idol, Keith Emerson, asked me to autograph his personal copy of KISS & TELL."

"Ninety percent of the media are f*cking morons and don't know how to do their job. They have no business being in the profession. If people in the media are offended by my revelations, maybe they should take a good long look at themselves. If you agree, I want to be interviewed by you."

"I never was, nor will I ever be, the stereotypical musician. I am more like sex, f*ck the drugs, and rock & roll.

I consider myself way above the stupidity of the average rock musician. I'm interested in having a great life with many interests beyond music."

As a world traveler, Gordon has gone to the far reaches of the world in Asia, Europe and even a trip to the North Pole.

"France is cool place to visit. A beautiful country. Only problem is there are too many French people there."

He was born in the city of Yonkers, New York on January 13, 1959. The middle initials G. G. actually are names - Gerald and Giles. The second born of three talented brothers, Gordon's original ambition was to become an astronaut. "I grew up watching the Apollo missions. Damn, I wanted to go up with them when I was a kid. But in reality I'd probably be screaming like Bugs f*cking Bunny if I was thrown into one of those rockets."

The sky's the limit for Gebert. What's next for this author/musician/entrepreneur? "I would love to see KISS & TELL made into a movie. It's got all the elements of Private Parts, Leaving Las Vegas, Goodfellas, and This Is Spinal Tap all rolled into one."
