Didn't know Vinnie & Elton John were related??? Same hair!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Also note in the first story about Y &T (hmm... maybe a classic 80s "BS for publicity story"?) they announce their new drummer Jimmy DeGrasso! A great drummer who went on to work with Megadeth!!

And our own Poserboy with Vinnie & Dana!

According to this article, Gene called Dana to congratulate Vinnie on his first album, stating that he liked the album.
This confirms my belief that Gene is actually nicer person than Paul.
Gene still had mentioned Vinnie at Rock and Roll hall of fame ceremony and he tried to protect Vinnie's privacy to some degree, meanwhile Paul pulled no punches (check out some 90's interviews and you'll see that Gene was reluctant to mention Vinnie's scam in details, stating to protect Vinnie's privacy, yet Paul was exposing the used favorite guitar scam of Vinnie on fans.
So, it appears to be Gene is a nicer person or has some soft spot for Vinnie after all the crap he has taken from Vinnie.

i didn't read all yet but the lesson about putting all his money into his demos is a good one. The guys who do things take mega risks and put money into their work to get what they want. I really like that story about Vinnie.

As for Gene liking VVI, I have a few interviews where he said he didn't like it but one said if he controlled his playing he would have liked it. They obviously knew it was good. I bet they both loved Ashes to Ashes and the more commercial tunes on ASG.

Gene is not a bad guy at all. I think being a band leader you are going to be hated but from what people have said I don't think he is bad. Hey we are all a mix of good and bad i guess.

Gene would have had his input if Vinnie stayed in Kiss and used the songs of VVI in Kiss album.
I believe Gene genuinely loved Vinnie's song writing yet was not too excited about his guitar solos. LOL

Yes, I think Gene's 'Asshole' persona is exaggerated, potentially for the purpose of marketing.
