Where Is Vinnie Vincent?

Many sources have said Vinnie prowls this site under false names and accounts to observe what everyone has been saying of him.

Is it true?

If so, Vinnie, if you read this, please private message me.
I am worried about you.
I want nothing from you, I just want to help.

I also have created a gofundme and all proceeds go to Vinnie.

Is anyone willing to help?

I hope this is allowed, if not I'll delete it asap.

Some of the funniest things in life are those that make you think because they have an underlying foundation of truth. Could you imagine anything worse than this? Someone completely well intended getting a response like that..............

Best Wishes to Vinniguitar1 in his quest to help. There are a lot of good people that are willing but Cusano doesn't seem willing to reach out and take the hand up.

His actions indicate that he prefers to be left alone and he is certainly entitled to his wish however many would like to see him make at least a final statement to his fans where he says good bye and good luck. He may not do this because things change. Though he may want privacy today tomorrow he may wish to conduct some business so he keeps his options open.

There is no doubt that through his talents and actions over his life that he is a fascinating person and story

Thank you so much Kev. I won't give up. I'm glad you aren't calking me a crazed fan or stuff.
I found a man who said he'd visited Vinnie a few months ago.
I asked if he'd let Vinnie know about me and that I wanted to help, but he refused.
It really crushed me because I got my hopes up. It was my first lead. But I have a good friend who knew Eric Carr and she lives near Smyrna, she offered to do some searching.
I just pray that if Vinnie really is contemplating ending his life, we or I can get to him in time.
This is the first time my life has had meaning.

I will take that chance. I doubt it though. Thanks for the negativity, but it doesn't deter me. If he sues me, at least he'll be able to get the money I'm sure he needs.

Who proved it? They don't know what they are talking about sorry.

I run the VVFF, Vinnie had an account in the first day or so, posted once and has only lurked since then.

If he had an account I would know.

Your friend may not have visited him either, people like to embellish their knowledge about Vinnie and what he's up to.

If I may, where is this account? And if he used a fake name, how would you know its him or not?
No disrespect intended. My apologies if I sound rude. I'm honestly just asking.

It's all here, but does date back to mid 2010, when this place went live after Vinnie shut down the old board.

He signed up as susie.q-rocks (http://vvforums.com/memberlist.php?mode ... ofile&u=14)

Admonishing us for abandoning Vinnie (him), which was quite funny.

Suzie on the old board is known to be one of the many aliases he used there.

Since then that account has not been logged into, you can see that in the profile, but the IP address was very active as a guest.

Can I ask you again please who was the person who says they met with Vinnie? Thanks.

They aren't on this site. They're on Facebook, geez.
But thank you for the info. And if the IP is active as a guest, does that mean he's lurking but not as an account?

His name was Mike Brian Wright. The guy who had seen Vinnie.

Oh and Admin, would it be alright if I post the link to the gofundme here?

If not its okay. I just...figured people here who understand Vinnie's situation would want to help.

No worries man, you can post the link, and yes, Vinnie's a lurker without an account.

What I first said: Hey I believe Vinnie Cusano is on your friends list?

Please don't be upset I'm not trying to pry but if that's really our Vinnie Vincent, (if you even know) please let me know.

I'm just 17 and I've been searching for him for weeks.
I've been worried sick about him.

I presume if he accepted your friend request, he either knows you personally or just randomly accepted.

Please get back to me as soon as you have time I'm really anxious.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

He's reply: Vinny Cusano

Me: Yea.

Him: I recorded with him before

Me: You did?! That's amazing! Also thank you for replying. I've messaged at least 12 others and they ignored me. I'm honored!

Him: Yeah he's getting up there he'll 64 this year

Me: I know... Please don't think me pushy or nosy but are you in contact with him? I'm not asking anything personal I'm just curious. You don't have to answer

Him: I was over his house about six months ago he's doing good he's having a little bit of health problems he just never really goes out and does anything anymore

Me: Oh thank God. Is he still in Franklin, TN? Once again, just asking.

Him: Smyna

Me: Because I sent a letter to his Franklin TN address. Crap

Him: He's pretty private person nowadays his career really went downhill over the last 20 years

Me: I know all about that, that's any I was so urgent to contact him. I felt really bad for him.
If I may, do you think it would be alright if I wrote to him...?
I don't want to pry into his personal life I just wanted to talk to him.. I'm a big fan but I also care about his well being

Him: Don't know if it's a good idea he is hurting for money and be coming strange
Paul frehley is the same way

((OK that got me because Ace is not becoming strange he's doing great))

Me: Dont you think though that someone should talk to him,before he gets worse..? I'm really sorry I just have been worrying sick about him a lot. Not just health but how he's doing psychologically. It sounds stalkerish and weird but I honestly just want to help. Hell, I'd send him money of he really needs it. I've read what he's been through. Its awful

Him: His money problems are very big sending him $100 won't even help

Me: I have been saving for some time, to be honest.

I understand that he's in bad shape.

Is there an address or p.o. box I can send to?

Him: Now I can't give that out

Me: Its okay I understand like I said I don't ever want him or you to feel or think I'm trying to be nosey.

But if you're in contact with him, will you please just give him my number? It honestly would mean the world to me

Him: Yeah I don't know if I want to go that far with this

Me: I completely understand. I just want to contact him like I said. I don't even live in Tennessee I live in Ohio. If you aren't comfortable with giving him that,its fine. I just...I've really wanted to talk to him and idk any way that doesn't seem intrusive

Him: A lot of guys are private and pee then they watch out for stalkers and extreme fans
Yeah I live in Pennsylvania

Me: I'm not some extreme fan who acts crazy. I promise

Him: I was going to give myself until I started having health problems and 2011

Me: I'm honestly just a kid. I'm just really concerned.

Him: If I talk to him about this he would say Mike you know better

Me: Well, please try. I'm not pressuring you I just....this has literally kept me up at night

Him: Look he hasn't had any money coming in for almost 15 years and now he has no new projects or anything like that so if he's selling off stuff just a love he's not rich

Me: I'm not interested in money!!!!!
Is that what it sounds like? ?? Hell no I don't want money from him!!

Him: He's not in a good way right now so I don't want to bother him

Me: Alright. I respect that. I'll just have to see what I can do by myself.
However if it helps I've made a gofundme account and all the donations I intend to give to him. Even if I have to wait 10 years to locate him. But either way I do NOT want money. All I want is to help. Please believe that. I really don't mean any harm

Him: (he gave a thumbs up))

Me: Thank you for your time, I guess. Is there anyone more sure of this that you know of whom I could speak to?
Never mind. Thank you again and I hope you don't think I'm a creep. Have a great night, Sir. Thank you again, this meant a great deal to me.

Him: He really does feel people contacted him and stuff
After his wife died I think he took off and nobody really knows where he's at
I personally don't think he's going to continue his life much longer

Me: You mean he's thinking of suicide?
Sir?? If this what you mean then please I have to talk to him. We can't lose him like Eric and Mark. Please, sir.

Him: As you get older you'll realize some people just want to be left alone
Are you allowed to do stuff to do today I gotta get going it's going to be a big no for the contacting him have a good day

Me: If you care more for saving your own ass than his safety, that's up to you. However I will not stop until I find him and help him. He doesn't really want to be left alone. No one does. I know what he's gping through. He probably thinks no one gives a damn. He's depressing himself by reading what people say about him expecially on the vv forums.

So, it doesn't matter to me whqt you do or don't do. Here's the link to the gofundme, for the record.
I hope you have a good day despite who you are abd how you act
I dobt really think you're in contact. You're probably a poser wgo ha no
Who has no idea about him at all*
I will find him
And I will help.
You just watch.
Good day. Unlike you I give a shit about his wellbeing.

That's it.

Thank you, he might be right but ....he might be a poser too.
He might "act" like he knows him, that makes him feel good, even thou he does not know you and never will
he feels satisfaction in thinking he convinced you he is a close friend or something.
Yes he is selling stuff but i think he got around $ 37k minus the auction house fee.

Did I act weird or anything..? I'd lost all hope that night and then there he was. I felt so hopeful and then so hurt. It broke my heart. I don't want his money. I don't want signature's. I just want to help him. Nothing has ever been this important to me.

I've only been a KISS soldier for a few months. I'm too focused on the guys themselves to pay attention to eras.

Like, I don't think one era is good and the other sucks.

I like all the boys a lot and their music is fine.

But idk Vinnie just...he's quirky, he's odd...idk I just slowly fell in love with all the guys, no particular reason.

I like the 70's but also the Eric and Vinnie eras. Creatures, Elder, ect.

I don't know! I'm an empath, so I just get feelings.

Like, I'd grown fond of the other boys and then I came to Vinnie.
I read about his recent troubles and then began worrying.
I began growing fond of him in my searches and now I am kept up at night worrying and hoping things work out.

Its in my own interest to some extent.
I feel the urge to help or reach out because I just...as a fan and as a person I feel strongly for him. Not sexually, or crazy fan like, I just...I care as a person.

Being an empath means I also grow fond of people deeply and quickly.

Oh my goodness thank you.
I like to think I'm nice, ha.
Well, I went a bit stalker-like.
I paid money to snoop on been verified.
I only found two phone numbers that could've helped...both were no longer his.

My friend lives near Smyrna, so she's working on that.
I'm busy messaging people who are on Vinnie's Facebook friends, idk if its a false account but still.

My plan? Well...keep trying till I find him. Hope he doesn't sue me.
