I've been lurking here and doing a great deal of reading (on and off) for the last several months.
I guess that I should start out by saying that I'm not (and never have been) a VV fan. In fact, I believe that I can honestly say that I've lived the last 30 years, without ever having a conscious thought of Vinnie Vincent.
What led me here was that my daughter was doing an 80's icon, biography type of thing for a school project...And she was doing hers on KISS. And at some point, while helping her, it occurred to me that 80's KISS would have been VV/Eric Carr and not Ace/Peter.
Anyhow, I've always had a natural curiosity about what happened to various musicians, actors, ect...After their 15 minutes of fame. And I often find myself Googling some blast from the past, after hearing an old song or watching some old tv show.
Sometimes I find that they simply stepped out of the spotlight and took on behind the scene roles, in their industry.
Sometimes I find that they got out of the industry all together and now live quiet lives, in some small town. Perhaps they own a business or have persued some other career, maybe raised a family and living a normal life.
Sometimes I find that they quietly passed away, after years of battling any number of health problems.
There are also those who have spiraled down to an incomprehensible level of disfunction that we can only shake our heads in disbelief.
After Googling and investigating hundreds of names, throughout the years...I can say (without a doubt) that this is by far, the most F***ed up mess that I have ever run across...
And yet it's also the most intriguing
