hi,

i was thinking back to the last time i saw kiss here at boondal entertainment centre, brisbane australia, a yearish ago i think

well in a sea of thousands there was one dude wearing a large black vinnie vincent kiss makeup face t-shirt - twas very cool

and that reminded me i really need to introduce myself on the forum and ask the question - are there any vinnie vincent fans on the southern gold coast, australia?

i haven't met a single one - unfortunately! they appear to be as rare as hens teeth on the ground here.

for my money it doesn't get better than "that time of year" and "love kills" off all systems go. pure rock bliss in my book.

vinnie was one of the reasons i picked up a guitar, I'm no vinnie at all, but i like a bit of axe fiddling every now and then and jamming to a sold out crowd of zero in my lounge room :)

my fave bands are ac/dc, bruce springsteen, kiss, vv, van halen,vixen, rate etc through to my current re-obsession -> WASP (golgotha is fantastic)

also into a few of the 80s aus rock metal bands like roxus, dumont, cheetah, rose tattoo, the angels etc

my other interests range from the beautiful surf/beaches we have here, through to horror movies, pinball, collecting cds/vinyl and basically anything from the 80s.

anyway, any gold coast vv fans out there?

Hey there. I don't think we have anyone else from the Gold Coast per say. QLD yes.

Did you see Ace's last show as well back in the day?

Welcome to the VVFF btw!

hi there,

unfortunately i didnt get to see ace solo last time he was in bris - hopefully next time :) did you?

didnt get to see him during the kiss unmasked tour at lang park either in 1980ish

that was an epic time to be a kiss fan in aus (my two fave kiss albums were from that period - dynasty and yes unmasked)

i did see kiss with ace n peter at carrara stadium during the reunion tour

Ill admit I mostly listen to the old W.A.S.P, but I have listened to their new Golgotha album. I really liked it.

And Blackie's voice, oh yes, hasn't wavered a bit :mrgreen:

Wish they'd come tour the U.S.

He hasn't come to AUS? That's surprising. Then again he seems to only stay in the Europe region. And ehh he hasn't toured the US in how long? Lol. I'll keep hoping though.

i think he came once in 2007 - id imagine he'd go to the states more than aus.

in any case i haven't seen him yet but would love to :) lets keep the fingers crossed!

i think europe is probably a bigger market for WASP now than elsewhere

chris holmes moved there a while back and said as such from his perspective

still got my old copy of wasp - videos in the raw vhs (but no player! - luckily found a dload) - great days! love machine is my fave video of theirs, great song.

I really liked the K.F.D. album after Crimson Idol but not anything after that so I'll have to give the new one a chance.

KFD was fantastic in my opinion, wasnt too crazy about anything afterwards, but i will say that Golgotha is easily the best since
