This is unbelievable!!!! Now after reading the interview with Hirsch, I do believe that Vinnie is the one releasing the Warrior material.

All the sources I've checked are saying this is for real. I purchased the Pink ticket & Meet & Greet. I hope VV pulls through, and doesn't cancel at the last minute.

Just spotted this interesting snippet in the FAQ section of the website:

https://www.lakissexpo.com/faq
Is there anything Vinnie won't sign?

Because Vinnie is working on a new line of custom Vinnie Vincent Model Guitars, Vinnie will not be able to sign any guitars or musical instruments.

Reflecting in this for a minute, I think this is a huge deal. Aside from the fact that this is a VV forum, and our man has appeared out of nowhere. Here's a guy who shunned the limelight for whatever reason for the last few years, and is clearly prepared to put himself out there again. And he's not just easing himself out there slowly - Boom! He's going to be the centre of attention at this convention. He is the draw. It's big news, not just for Kiss fans, but for the music world as a whole: The enigma that is/was Vinnie Vincent. It's a fascinating story, and this is the next chapter.

Don't get me wrong - I think this is great. If Vinnie can handle himself here, show some humility about the last 30 years (the good and bad), be candid and pull off the fact that he was a major part of Kiss' history, and live up to that title in the way he conducts himself, then I can see a resurgence of a career for him. And not necessarily as a performer. He could do a book, do a few conventions, launch merch, launch a guitar range, a few interviews, couple of guest appearances, play a song with Ace/Bruce on an album blah blah blah - you never know, there's a solid income stream there.

I think like all of us, Vinnie wants legitimacy and validation. This is a great opportunity for him to cement himself in rock history in a credible way for all the right reasons. At present I think he's (in)famous for all the wrong reasons.

A lot of water has gone under the bridge, and I think fans would absolutely warm to him after all this time. If he can pull it off.

Go get 'em Vinnie - I think this is a great opportunity to do something positive.

This is amazing news. I hope as well that Vinnie conducts himself well and can interact with his fans in a professional and personal way, such is the norm these days.

I also hope it all happens without a glitch as it seems this expo is built around Vinnie, which is great.

This is his time!!! I am still in shock after hearing the news yesterday. This came out of nowhere. This truely is a huge deal and think this expo will be legendary. I can't wait to meet some of the members on this forum. This is great stuff. I am also wondering if the timing has anything to do with the 35 year rule with publisher rights. Songwriters can reclaim their song copyright after 35 years. Creatures came out in 82. Lick It Up will be 35 years old next year.

He has to explain home incident, boxset scandal, all fiascos, rumors.. in front of the people. I don't see how an earth he could come clean if he is VV that I have heard of. This is not going to happen. I hope otherwise of course.

I think some of the forum members will be black listed like at namm too. Me included but I won't be going anyway but that said this will be great and I think vv will do well. it's a great thing

About the event: A Celebration Of The CREATURES OF THE NIGHT and LICK IT UP Era! And the solo career of Vinnie Vincent including...Invasion, All Systems Go, and Guitarmegeddon. - ??

Under the 'FAQ' section:
-Q: Is there anything Vinnie won't sign?
A: Because Vinnie is working on a new line of custom Vinnie Vincent Model Guitars, Vinnie will not be able to sign any guitars or musical instruments.-

I've never heard of ANY artists doing this, nor ANY instrument companies prohibiting an endorsee from signing a guitar. Why in the world would he refuse to sign a legit VVV? I could understand maybe he does not want to put his signature on a knockoff, unauthorized, or unofficial guitar though. But, to that end, I've seen many artists sign styles and brands of guitars they never personally used. this is starting to look strange, in true Vinnie fashion. I'm on pins & needles waiting on this "special message from VV". I want to go to this, but I'm skeptical about the legitimacy.

I would guess he will have cd's of guitarmageddon or at least the demo rarities or be maybe selling it he double v guitar line which would explain the non signing of guitars. Would be cool if Jackson did an affordable run of vv guitars or carvin I guess.
Would love to hear a long ass version of invincible with real drums available. Epic tune. Hope he has some stuff in his back pocket.

Of course the dream would be guitarmageddon release, plus a shrapnel records type instrumental album and a new vvi record with songs written after guitars from hell. and a tour with Vv/ Robert / bobby . I feel like they would agree to it.

A tour would be too much. Can't see that happening at his age, with all the water under the bridge and having not performed properly in nearly 30 years? I can't see anyone taking that on, even if VV wanted to do it. Besides, aside from Bobby Rock who I think would do it for shits and giggles, Fleischman, Strum and Slaughter wouldn't go anywhere near it.

I can see the odd random performance happening with a few guests, but a full blown relaunch band situation? Not a chance.

But then I'm just an idiot sat in front of a keyboard, what do I know? If you'd asked me if he'd reappear again I'd laugh you out of town - yet here we are.

I suppose the real question would be what are the chances of Bruce and Eric making an appearance at the Expo too?

Great footage from 1994. First time viewing it for me.
I hope that Vinnie will take on all questions from the fans that are able to attend.
I hope he showcases the courage that his music represents.
