Ep. 196 We Let The Cat Out Of The Bag Regarding Peter Criss with Mark Montague

Episode 196, September 20, 2016. Mark Montague joins us to discuss his book Let The Cat Out Of The Bag and his time working with KISS drummer Peter Criss.

Bassist extraordinaire Mark Montague reveals in detail his incredible musical journey, from beginnings in San Francisco to gigs galore on Hollywood’s storied Sunset Strip, leading him to join forces with Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame drummer Peter Criss of KISS, and receiving a certified multi-platinum record award as a member of Five For Fighting.

Let The Cat Out Of The Bag provides an in depth look at the highs and lows of his lengthy stint with a living musical legend, highlighting the many setbacks, triumphs, tragedies, and everything in between. Mind boggling, entertaining, true anecdotes that will leave you begging for more. 124 pages filled with classic stories and rarely seen photos from Mark’s personal collection, including many from his days with the band Criss.

This is NOT your average dirty laundry tell-all book. This is the good, the bad and the ugly told in a beautiful, peaceful, yet twisted manner. The old adage ‘truth is stranger than fiction’ comes alive in Let The Cat Out Of The Bag.

Countless funny, true adventures cherry picked from the Tallman’s career, emphasizing his years with the one and only ‘Catman’, and also featuring tales of jamming with original KISS guitarist and fellow touring compatriot Ace Frehley.

We also announce that all four of us from Three Sides of the Coin will be attending the NJ KISS Expo on October 9th! Tickets and details can be found online at
