The Complete VINNIE VINCENT Collection (Feature)

Welcome to Decibel Geek‘s Complete Vinnie Vincent Collection. Here, you’ll find links to everything we’ve done on the enigmatic KISS guitarist.

On stage, Vincent was the last member to wear a unique makeup/costume configuration. He was the character of “Ankh Warrior”, a design created by Paul Stanley. Until…

VINNIE VINCENT INVASION – All Systems Go (Retro-Review)

VINNIE VINCENT INVASION – All Systems Go (Retro-Review)

If Aaron Camaro and Chris Czynszak read this I’m probably getting fired. Especially when they learn that I have never heard either of Vinnie Vincent Invasion albums or anything else in his solo catalog, these my friends are virgin ears so a fresh new opinion is on the way…. read on! “Ashes to Ashes” kicks in with a cranking little 80’s riff that reminds me a bit of “Still of the Night” by Whitesnake. I…

VINNIE VINCENT INVASION – Vinnie Vincent Invasion (Retro-Review)

VINNIE VINCENT INVASION – Vinnie Vincent Invasion (Retro-Review)

KISS‘ unmasking ranks among the most disappointing moments in my life.  The MTV special lacked a certain gravitas as half of the “un-maskers” had barely been in the band in 1983.  Meaning for lifelong fans the only moment of interest was the two founding members of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.  We find out Paul without make-up looks an awful lot like Paul with make-up. Gene. Not so much. While seeing Vinnie without makeup will never be…

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…

Keepin’ it positive for KISSmas – Vinnie Vincent

Hey there, and a very Happy KISSmas in July! Just in case you’ve wandered in here by mistake, KISS is a huge band, commanding a huge and devoted following. 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…
