ThayerPower, your name says it all. Unless it is an inside joke that only you know about, and you (and only you) think is funny, then you are a troll of very miniscule proportions. I'm betting you copy/paste your lame retorts from here and send them to your "friends" over on the "True KISS Fan Forum" for the virtual high-fives from other people like yourself that are huge fans of the current Thayer/Singer lineup of KISS. You truly have no place here, and I'd bet real money that the only reason you are here is to troll, but you're not even good at it. What a sad excuse of a human being. I'm sure your family and friends are so proud of you.
My adventure to Nashville yielded one clue that I suspected all along. Vinnie HAS been in contact in the past (and possibly recent too) with publishers in the area. In Nashville, as well as the Memphis area, there's a handful of music publishing companies based there. I sold the rights away to two songs I wrote (out of 5 that I submitted), and had to sign quite a few documents prepared by the publishing house lawyer, although my meeting was with one of their buyers, my contact. By selling the rights away to them, I no longer own them, and they are free to change anything about them that they see fit. After the formalities were done, and I had an envelope in my hand with a check inside, I was invited to go have a few drinks, which I took him and his colleague up on the offer. I thought it was a nice gesture. I had already planned to ask them something, so this made the perfect opportunity to do so. I steered the conversation to songwriters and artists, and after a few back and forth moments of talking, I asked, "Does the name Vincent or John Cusano ring a bell?"... my contact guy slowly shook his head and said, "No, I don't think so." But the other guy immediately started staring into the ceiling with a puzzled look while rubbing his beard and says, "Hmm, that name does sound familiar. I think someone at the previous house I worked at may have brought his name up once or twice, but that was a few years ago. Who is he?" I didn't go into details about Vinnie Vincent, but instead just said "He's an awesome songwriter that may live here, or used to live in the area." That was the end of that, because the conversation then turned to whatever was playing on the jukebox. I really wanted to press the guy for more, but there is a non-disclosure agreement sometimes depending on the nature of the contract, and I didn't want to overstep any boundaries and possibly ruin my relationship with them, because I would like them to listen to the next batch I send instead of throwing it into the trash. It was around 8pm by the time we shook hands and parted ways. I went to the Cracker Barrel near the Motel 6 I stayed at by the river dam, then to the saloon which was walking distance from my room. Got up the next morning before 11:00 checkout, and got back on the road for my 12-hour trek back home. No concrete info about Vinnie though, other than he has dealt with (or attempted to deal with) publishing companies in some aspect for the prospect of selling or marketing songs to artists. There's also the possibility that the name sounded familiar, but wasn't the same person the guy was thinking of. It's also possible that we could have already heard other Vinnie penned tunes out there which he outright sold and has no claim to, just like I did. Needless to say, I'd rather hear Vinnie playing them than someone else.
