Vinnie Vincent (KISS) Handwritten Letter
Handwritten letter from Vinnie Vincent to David Snowden and Keith Leroux. David and Keith ran “The KISS Force” fan club during the 80’s.
The KISS Force was known as ‘The KISS Army of the ‘80s’ with several thousand members. Eric Carr, Bruce Kulick, Vinnie Vincent, Ace Frehley and the rest of KISS did numerous interviews for fan club newsletter.
The letter was recently found in a box of photos and other items that David kept over the years. It is written on 8½” x 11” ruled paper in gold marker.
Letter reads: “Dear Dave & Keith –
Thanks so much for your support. I’d still like to have you start ‘First Blood!’. I’m still very into your energy & patience with it. I’m sorry I haven’t contacted you in awhile. But between the album, the band & the new house I just bought, things have been extremely hectic. But this record is such a killer & I’m so proud of it! Can’t wait to you to hear it. Its coming out on Chrysalis in Jan 86! You can contact me thru George Sewitt. He’s my manager, also Ace’s. I feel that you (Dave & Keith) George & I make a great team. By next issue I should have the name of the record & the band for you.
Nice piece of history - Vinnie wanting David & Keith to run his official fan club “First Blood” (later changed to the Vinnie Vincent Invasion International Fan Club). Also mentioned is George Sewitt (his manager) and Ace Frehley! Plus his new record deal with Chrysalis, release date and buying a new home in California.
NOTE: David Snowden did run the official Vinnie Vincent Invasion International Fan Club from 1986-1989 (when they disbanded). Keith Leroux is the current webmaster for KISSonline.com (KISS’ official website/fan club). Letter is in excellent condition with some ‘yellow’ aging spots. Will pass any PSA or other authentication process!
