Re: Get the led out

Mark did backing vocals, Bobby played drums and Dana produced Kuni's album "Lookin for Action". And it was recorded at Cherokee Studios where a certain VV album released in 1988 was also recorded!

Re: Fred Coury from Cinderella tells his Vinnie Vincent story!

You read correct. Fred didn't finally play on a Cinderella album until "Heartbreak Station". The reason for Fred not playing prior had to do with their producer at the time, Andy Johns, who seemed to have issues with drummers. Shoot, Cozy Powell did some sessions with Cinderella for the Long Cold Wi...
