More Unpublished Vinnie Vincent & KISS Photos Surface

38 comments

A few months ago we received a handful of photos purportedly from Vinnie Vincent's private collection.
The pictures were supplied by a fan that claimed to have had a close relationship with the former KISS guitarist and had supposedly been jilted. The photos received quite a few views as well as some mud slinging back and forth in the comments section. Read for yourself.

We have now received a whole new set of Vinnie Vincent & KISS photos from the 1982-1983 Creatures of the Night era. These pictures were supplied by a member of the Vinnie Vincent Fan Forum and, as far as we know, are relatively unseen. Could these photos come from the same source as the previous ones? No one here knows for sure but it is interesting.

Many of the shots appear to be from a promotional photo shoot while others seem to be possibly from an in-store appearance. This era  of the band was short-lived, thus photos with the Simmons/Stanley/Carr/Vincent lineup of KISS are a bit more scarce.

We are happy to share these photos with the Vinnie Vincent and KISS fans all over the world. Be sure to comment!

Great shots. It's such a shame he's a lying, thieving scumbag. A real waste of talent. Too late now.

Dear Anonymous commenter above, we posted the photos after clearly stating that we were supplied them by a VVForum member that did not want to be identified. We are BIG fans of Vinnie Vincent and KISS and wanted to share these great photos of a lineup of KISS that was severely underrated. So, what exactly should we feel ashamed of? Any help you can give in this regard would be appreciated.

I think he sucked at kiss. I enjoyed his material after kiss with the invasion.
his style just did not work AT all with the kiss lineup. regardless of what he did behind the scenes for the band pre his call up to the band. It sounded pathetic.

VV was an addition to a dying KISS in 1982/83. His songs on the LICK IT UP and CREATURES OF THE NIGHT albums(two of the best KISS albums IMHO)were never subsequently beaten apart from REVENGE. Good on ya Vinnie for the tine you were in KISS. Under rated addition to the phenomonen called KISS. Annon...Kenny (35yr KISS fan)

Very cool to see more photos from that era, no matter what anyone thinks of Vinnie we wouldnt have such killer albums like Creatures, Lick It Up, or Revenge.

Anyone who saw the Creatures tour KNOWS Vinnie is an amazing talent!!...I am a HUGE Ace fan, but I had to nod my head to the guy!!...Creatures album & tour was a result of The Elder doing so poorly, & the band went in the direction Ace wanted to after Unmasked!!!
Wish he would have stayed, but I think Vinnie was a GREAT replacement, he just didn't take orders very well!!!

Vinnie Vincent is mentally ill, broke and he did it to himself. A vile twisted character who abused any trust shown in him. The only thing that sucks more than being a fan is being VV himself.

Kiss went down hill after vv left the band or got terminated and he shouldn't of had to of take the crap that kiss gave him and a band member should not have to take orders and I have also read on this forum that he was a non talent with kiss. The real deal is that he was nothing more than a hired hand and was a puppet on a string. vv didn't take there crap and was let go because of it. Is kiss really moving forward with the peter criss and ace frehley make up on band members that are replacements. It sounds to me like gene and paul left kiss and joined a Kiss tribute band.

Well VV was the best song writer ever in KISS, but if you think about the characters w. makeup he was a slut with a makeup that did not suite him

Tina Hidalgo,

Vinnie will NEVER forgive you for what you have done. Shame on you. Vinnie trusted you, and you betrayed him.

That is no true lover of Vinnie.

eventstrategies said...

Will be great to see Vinnie to reléase new music he playing all the instruments and vocals, a real solo álbum by him.

His time with KISS is still hot between the true fans, wish him well..
