I really like the way the guys all look together for Creature of the, Night, with Carr and Vincent in makeup. They look hungry--!!

Vinnie needs a solo lesson from this performance.

Vinnie played mindless noise compared to these guys.

Why not just answer the question of the topic at hand instead of being a nuisance?
Too many finest moments for me to mention if I went song by song. Album-wise, I agree with you though I love ASG. And definitely the Birthday Bash where he put all the doubts about his abilities to shame.
You know he played to a recorded tape at the birthday bash.
You’re definitely Category 3... :lol: And with that, back to my studies for a while.
"What are ya studying for? Are you getting your professor bullshit degree?!"

I couldn't let this one go 😆

I know Vinnie is a Christian, so no doubt he’s going to Heaven.
He's not a very good Christian.

I’m not sure about the other guys, or any “fans” who keep griping about ancient history (Matthew 6:15).
You mean like The Sphinx? :lol:

Finest moment? On here posting as SO many people

Finest performance? The acting he gave at Atlanta. Oscar worthy. WE almost believed him.

As a player, whenever he was on a leash ( = in the studio with with Simmons & Stanley). The guy is super talented and he has an amazing gift for melody - AND he has a completely unique tone and touch - but as a player he's totally unable to restrain and edit himself.

In terms of songwriting, I tend to prefer stuff he wrote before Kiss (fantastic shit like Gypsy In Her Eyes) to what he wrote after Kiss. But the stuff I enjoy most is the stuff he wrote with Gene. No matter what some people say, it is obvious to me that those songs were very much CO-written.

Vinnie is a charlatan. The MYTH of him being a "great" songwriter is just that - a myth. You want to see a TRUE songwriter who actually wrote hits? Check out Desmond Child's track record. Like Vinnie, he got his big break writing with KISS, but look at what Desmond Child did with that opportunity vs. what Vinnie did with it:

No, but they are more than a blip on the radar and have a career. You know, like Bernie Taupin, Desmond Child, etc.

Usually, yes. Lennon/McCartney. Elton John/Bernie Taupin. Freddie Mercury. Tyler/Perry. Even Simmons and Stanley.

And you know why? Because sales mean their songs touched the masses and meant something.

That's why Vinnie's music has always failed and never sold.

Absolutely not. An example is Brian May. In my opinion, Brian is one of the greatest songwriters in rock history but some of his best songs that are the most loved by Queen fans weren't necessarily the best sellers / highest charting. Songs like 'Now I'm Here' , 'Who Wants To Live Forever' , 'The Hero', 'Flash' ......I could go on and on. However, the strength of those songs, and the songwriting team of Queen in general, made their records strong and their live shows stronger......and virtually filler free.

You know, I'll say it, yes.

Gold Digger, Stronger, Good Morning...those are amazing songs.

But to answer your question...I'd ask to clarify...how do you determine best?

Art is so subjective....

Simmons not so much, but Stanley has been able to at least write some pretty cool songs over the years. Simmons is more of an experimenter, and basically just tosses ideas around and tries making them work.

Let's have some perspective here... http://www.vh1.com/news/45881/underrate ... uitarists/ CC beats out ole VV here. I love VV's work with KISS but he's no God, nor by any accounts is he a peach.

Vinnie Saving KISS

That is Vinnie's finest moment.

Love this VH1 article from 2015. Although, he should have been named the #1 most under-rated hair metal guitarist, they did put him at #2.




#2 Vinnie Vincent – Kiss/Vinnie Vincent Invasion

Vinnie Vincent saved Kiss. No two ways about it.

As Kiss’s record sales and concert attendance dwindled in the early ’80s, former Vincent John Cusano started as a session player on the 1982 Creatures of the Nightalbum before strapping on the requisite platform boots and painting his face to become the “Ankh Warrior” as departing guitar lord Ace Frehley’s official replacement.

The following year, Kiss famously ditched their makeup, emboldened not just by Vinnie’s daredevil guitar playing, but also by his absolutely top-tier skills as a songwriter. Just as Kiss has adapted to late-’70s disco with “I Was Made for Loving You,” Vinnie Vincent multiple talents would mega-successfully launch the band into the hair metal ’80s.

Vinnie co-wrote eight of the ten songs on 1983’s transitional smash Lick It Up, including the instant-classic title track, which remains one of Kiss’s true signature anthems, and the full-blown rump-stomper “All Hell’s Breakin’ Loose.”

Alas, Vinnie’s Kiss tenure proved short-lived. Business tensions and some onstage antics such as an unexpected, off-the-wall guitar solo at a March 1984 Quebec gig at the end of the Lick It Up tour prompted Kiss to fire Vinnie immediately. He went on to form the Vinnie Vincent Invasion, which put out two albums that have become fan favorites: a self-titled debut in 1986, and All Systems Go, two years later.

In the years since, Vinnie Vincent has become a mysterious figure and even the object of cult devotion. Rolling Stone even ran a 2014 article titled “The Long Kiss Goodbye: The Search for Vinnie Vincent.”

Vinnie has certainly earned every bit of this admiration and fascination.



The only thing I would take issue with is Vinnie wasn't fired. Vinnie went AWOL. KISS was begging him to return. Gene even got Diana Ross to call him. Vinnie refused to come back.
at least you admit he was a hair metal guy instead of a shredder because he is nowhere near shredder status.

Vinnie finest moment is probably Animal...but this is a close second. The fact that it hasn't had an official release is a crime.

Nuke It

Gosh... This is incredibly annoying!!! :? :? :? :flower:
Yeah, it is. For one, his note diarrhea is all over the song, and for another, the vocals sound horrid. Great songwriter, that one. :lol:

For me,this was borderline unlistenable,mostly because AGAIN....the guitar is so out of place,so over the top that it really seems out of place. It has no feeling,no emotion,no anything.
