I know the song for more than 30 years, but now i decided to give a spin to COTN with headphones
and analyze each tune in deep. Im surprised i never catched this before but ISL is 100% VV.
The melodies, the tragic line, the dramatic dark and mysterious feel is oh boy 100000% Vinnie.
You can even hear traits of his personality and now i understand why he created that amazing music that nobody
seems to be able to replicate it's like a spider's music, KISS were very fortunate to have him, they met at the right time
but this is magnificent, ISL has some Unholy vibe as well, listening to KILLER, the nasty persecuting assasin melodies are there
im now more than sure that those were Vinnie's songs more than Paul and Gene's, the drama is there, it all fits with him and
his way of being, VINNIE IS HIS MUSIC and HIS MELODIES. I found new respect for Vinnie today, he was (because he no longer release music)
a MUSICAL GENIOUS but it's his personality. It's his way his only way. He is his music and his music is him.
Now im listening to War Machine, which he did not write , song melodies are mean but ...like wannabe mean, it's like a goofy kind of mean
Vinnie's melodies are psychopatic and sad in a freak way, his solos too, please take a deep listen and try to understand his message.
He was a tortured soul but the way he expressed that on his melodies its what made him a unique genious. He is irreplaceable.
