Nobody knows.
Probably some sort of meeting where you can talk for hours. Maybe about shredding?
Absolutely no live performance, thats for sure.

Unless VV produces some type of digital release (not a prepay mail order item) I have zero interest and ZERO empathy for his victims.

If Vinnie truly wants a career at this point, he should buy a few microphones and a nice interface, a macbook with pro tools, or go to a studio, and record a few songs and release it as a EP on his own website and thru itunes. Show the world what ya got!

Then make good on the boxset fiasco.

All this long drawn out preperations for shows is just bullshit. Any promoter still hoping to get a show out of innie must be brain dead.

Vinnie Vincent is not and will never play live again. Mark my words.

He will, however, keep taking your cash.

:lol:

I was wondering that myself

You get the impression that he actually thinks this term “shred” is actually appealing to somebody u

the guy can’t play guitar anymore, as he has proven, but in 2019 who would give a f*** if he COULD shred ?


“Shredding” don’t mean anything anymore- that’s 30 years outdated bullshit who gives a f*** about an out of shape, former big bands hired guitar player in his late 60s claiming he can still pick fast? which no one cares to hear anymore anyway ?

And here he has gotten a new administrator speaking on his behalf, announcing yet another big grand performance that’s in the works

:lol: this guys idiocy level has reached new heights

I don't know if aging minor rockstars think in terms of career. Or if most of them actually ever did. All that resembles a career for Vinnie was his gig with VVI.
Everywhere else of note he was a replacement cog in somebody else's machine. He might've never had it in him, just wanted to get payed, and happend to like and be really good at playing guitar.
So what we're seeing now might be exactly the same person minus the guitar skills.

It is very simple Vinnie. Get a camera, let someone use it to film you playing, and upload it to youtube. If it looks legit, then you can plan a show. Secondly, you need to sign a legal document promising that if the show is cancelled, everyone gets a 100 percent reimbursement. Otherwise, go away.

Actually, I hope that Vinnie is able to put out some product. A 12" pink vinyl version of "Euphoria" would made a nice RSD release if done properly with order fulfillment left to a professional third party. Or digital "Guitars from Hell" ...

Euphoria is best you can hope. Guitars from hell was never finished and Robert Fleischman said the vocals were not finished in recording

Very true. And he wont play live because he is a shell of the guitarist he used to be. Based on Atlanta and Miami, he can barely play at all. And for the biggest guitar solo showoff in rock history, if he could still play, he would have given the Atlanta attendees a guitar solo that would still be going. He cant play but he can still scam.

I don’t think alienating fans and banning fans who asks questions will help him sell tickets for this third attempt at doing a gig. But maybe they know best what they are doing ..

And he's SO busy that he has to have someone else speak for him? Give information to the "fans" from him. This guy is out there...my God. Enough is enough. He had ANOTHER great chance to do something and blew it. Fans were stoked to see him...talk to him....etc. He could've made it into something. But no....once again,pissed it away with shady dealings and bs.

I really appreciate the insider knowledge you share on VV, but Guitars from Hell are finished enough to plot a realease, provided he has cleaner versions in his posession. I mean I just type Guitars from Hell in youtube and out come several versions of this album with complete everything: vocals, guitars drum tracks (maybe drum machine, but still), sfx. Fleischman only recently started to pretend he knows nothing about it, but there was at least one interview with a European fella where he talked about the sessions in detail. Nowadays he slags off his vocals as being in scratch/demo stage, but to me they sound very professional and very much finished for more than 10 songs. But of course Vinnie's the only guy who's not releasing anything VV related since his reemergence. Warrior guys are releasing a second Warrior cd this month, Bobby Rock is releasing a companion album to his VV-centric book. Even Carmine Appice has some VV music to release.

Yeah literally Vinnie should just take his Iphone or a Go Pro and film himself with a flying V shredding for like 10 seconds....post on youtube and forums..it would be a step in the right direction. Wonder what the excuse would be why THAT can’t happen...?

Totally unqualified psychological opinion :

When he’s on an ‘up’ he throws these things out there. Book. New VVI album. Tour. Box set. Redo ASG with first singer. Acoustic tour. Full shredd. Electric tour.

Then that wears off and he bottoms out and hits a ‘down’ and everyone’s out to get him and hang on I don’t like this contract and I can’t face learning these songs and someone will probably assasinate me at these concerts so I need six security guards and a bulletproof vest and fuck it I’ll just cancel the whole thing because something isn’t perfect and it’s all THEIR fault.

Classic bipolar.

Again, totally unqualified opinion.

Love the guy to get on medication or do whatever the help he has to do so he can write that book, do a new song or two, or do an informal type guitar and talk show. In that order of preference.

It was finished, there was once a completed and fully mixed promo CD of the full album on eBay straight from the record company (being sold by someone who used to work there). Vinnie contacted me (and presumably everyone else who bid on it) and threatened to sue if I won the auction. The Euphoria EP are all songs directly from that CD but he replaced Andre LaBelle's tracks with a drum machine. What Robert was talking about was that he sent Vinnie his scratch vocal tracks and Vinnie ended up putting those on the record instead of having him come into the studio and do a "real" vocal session.

Why is this thread two pages long? Vinnie couldn't pull off not one show, in Nashville and he lives near there!! If he hadn't landed the KISS gig he wouldn't have landed anywhere. Clearly he could play well when there was someone around that could reign him in. Meds could possibly help him inf someone could find the right one and then get him to take it properly. If one didn't work then make it a combo.

In my opinion, in his mind, he thinks the shred term is still a very admirable ability


even know when he could “shred” he was merely fast picking with NO phrasing nor memorable note usage; it it was just BS for the sake of being fast And the guitar hero days from the 80s and 90s

Vinny barely registered on the scale among the numerous other very good technically proficient talented players could play fast AND played memorable material ..Vinnie could pick fast but he had zero ability to make any actual music with his solos- they were merely fast nonsense

but I agree shred means nothing anymore- no one gives a rip about that anymore. this guy is delusional


and I agree with your psychological evaluation above, even if it meant in jest- that’s probably rather accurate as to his condition
