I will say this, he is by far a more interesting player than Michael Angelo Batio, who may or may not be wearing a wig. Yikes!

I find it very odd that Vinnie doesn't have an Official Website Page, especially now when social media is at an all-time high with the amount of traffic that exist for everyone. Even more odd is that he would try to sell Box Sets and whatever else through a 'Fan Forum' which in itself makes it even more idiotic when the goal is to look legitimate and make paying customers feel a bit safer in spending their hard earned cash.

I voted 'Other' in the Poll asking what is Vinnie Vincent's Best Album. My 'Other' is of course Lick It Up. If he had written and played at least 75% of Creatures, that would have been my choice. But with Lick It Up being the only complete album of his under the KISS name, that wins instead.

Wow! Vinnie Vincent. Haven't really thought about him in a long time. Personally, I have never been a fan. His guitar playing is a bit too showy for me. And, the Jackson never looked right to me onstage with KISS. Frankly, with Bruce Kulick in the studio I am not sure how Vinnie even got selected to work with KISS at all.

Welcome aboard Tom! Yeah, I'm still in the dark about how and why Gene and Paul brough Vinnie back to write on Revenge. If I were Bruce, I'd feel hurt and betrayed to have another guitar player "writing" new songs for the album. I really wish Gene and Paul would finally just come clean about all the "demands" Vinnie made, be it when he was a "member" of KISS and during Revenge. They are so cryptic about everything that it has actually added to the myth of Vinnie rather than having him disappear, which is what they would have liked all along. Hey, wait....Vinnie did disappear! Ack!

Hey Tom...we go crazy here but try and be honest and fair...welcome aboard!

It was interesting watching his guitar instructional tape for me (and I'd not consider myself a fan of his from before, so I am coming at this with a very even playing field.)  But he's got a very interesting background for his playing...his parents I guess were very heavily into country music and his dad I think he said played steel pedal guitar, and his mother sang....there was music at his house all the time and he'd join in and play.  Before he said that in the video I was noticing his middle finger doing sweeps on his pick hand as his was alternate picking and I was thinking "am I seeing what I think I am??"

it's a pretty impressive thing he's doing. 

his stuff gets very disonate though which is probably going to turn off a lot of people (myself included at some point) just because although "any" note can work in a run....it's only interesting for so long before it just sounds like you are running your finger up and down the fret board "willy nilly"

Vinnie's playing reminded me a little of Chastain's work.  check out this song...it's actually quite good but you'll hear what I am talking about in terms of chromatic runs/ and again I'll go back to Vinnie's HUMILITY.  The guy was NOT some ****y prick on his video which back then you'd see quite a bit...it was like they were slumming it doing these videos and didn't want to be there.

Vinnie reminded me a tiny bit of Randy Rhoads on it funny enough.  I like the guitar he used in the video.....it's an interesting twist on a V.

here's that Chastain song...it really gets going about 40 seconds in...there's a little intro that is kind of a build up before that

I'm just glad that he went with the Flying V, opposed to the Reverse Flying V. Yuck!!

The are horrible and look exactly like something that Vinnie would want to stick in Gene's back. Haha.

I've watched those Ace clips a few times. I just wished the company that put the videos out would stick to the tab basics and just have the tab on screen instead of trying to make it like "Guitar Hero / Rockband". I like to look at all of the tab at once and see where the breaks are and it makes it easier for me to remember stuff. The same company put out George Lynch's as well and the stuff flies so fast that you have to just grab the tabs from the internet to see exactly what he is doing.

I think there are only 1 or 2 pics of Vinnie actually playing a Les Paul during his KISS days. I've seen one, but not both. That image of Ace and his LP is sweeeeeeet.

This looks legit. I would think this would go for more than the asking price of 11k given the fact that it's from the original run back in '88, signed by the entire VVI band and looks to be in solid condition for its age. With that said, the most I'd pay for this would be 1k.

Interesting there's no Vinnie Vincent signature.....but it looks legit.  I don't think 11K is that bad....I'd say 9-10 is more reasonable....11K is trying to steal an extra "K" and to knowledgeable collectors that can be offensive and kill a sale and interest.
