Re: Reaction To Atlanta KISS Expo Appearance

hopefully Vinnie will have some good announcements to make. I can't see why he'd do this otherwise.

Re: Three Sides of the Coin - Gary Shea talks Vinnie

Indeed very good post Vince. I just watched one of the VV Q&A sessions of a 94 KISS Expo. He basically confirmed (again) that it was after the pre-production of Animalize it was VV who walked away. He had a nice batch of songs demoed and decided to leave KISS. Just some speculation here: could it b...

With the caliber of songwriting skill that VV brought into KISS, it put both Gene and Paul into an awkward position. They had already started the new business model with Eric Carr as a new member to be a paid employee, before Vinnie arrived. Yet, Vinnie wrote more material for LIU than Ace probably ...

really cool to see Mark having a good time playing this song, and his comments afterwards as well. then someone in the crowd yells for "Ecstasy". I wonder if Eddie Trunk has seen this, and what his thoughts might be since he seems to have a passionate opinion about anything remotely KISS related.
