In Defense of Vinnie Vincent (KISSmas in July 2016)

In Defense of Vinnie Vincent (KISSmas in July 2016)

Vincent Cusano.  The spawn of two Connecticut musicians born in 1952, little Vinnie would grow up to be among the most revered musicians in the history of Rock and Pop music.  Did I say revered?  Sorry.  I meant despised.  Detested.  Loathed.  Abhorred.  Shunned?  Described as a thief, a paranoid megalomaniac, his own worst enemy, wife beater, cross dresser or collector of dog carcasses there seems to be only one positive adjective that even Vinnie‘s biggest detractors…

Most fans have favourite eras and line-ups and enjoy them regardless but for some arguing about who & what is best seems to take up most of their time. Personally, I just like the music, and the performance, in and of itself, no matter what era…

Five KISS Tell-All’s That Need To Be Written

Five KISS Tell-All’s That Need To Be Written

Love ’em or Leave ’em, the story of KISS is a fascinating journey full of dysfunction.  Sex.  Drug abuse.  In fighting.  Reconciliation.  Masturbating with a vibrating egg.  And more drama than a Kennedy family picnic.  I love the story of KISS.  I love reading about it.  Prior to the mid-90’s that largely meant magazines.  And not the kind of magazines that did any actual journalism mind you.  These were publications geared towards the less sophisticated (pre-pubescent)…
