FORMER KISS GUITARIST VINNIE VINCENT BELIEVES HE “COULD HAVE” REJOINED THE BAND AFTER “REVENGE” WRITING SESSIONS
Former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent gave an hour-long interview to Mike Brunn at the May Metal Madness event on May 29th at S.I.R. Soundstage in Nashville, Tennessee. Highlights from the interview appear below, as transcribed by blabbermouth.net.
When asked if he ever felt there was a chance that he could rejoin KISS when he was brought back to co-write Unholy, Heart Of Chrome and I Just Wanna for the band’s 1992 album, Revenge, Vincent said, “I think — I think… Those are very important two little words, because it’s me thinking this. But we formed this thing where we were… The Vinnie, Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley]… The bond was getting there creatively. And we’re talking about at that time. In my humble opinion, in my heart of hearts, in my private world of my own mind, I believe that there was a moment where… Whoever was driving the car was gonna turn the wheel, but there was a moment where it could have easily happened where I would have been back in the band. But this is my opinion. Don’t take it as someone else’s opinion.”
When asked if he wanted to rejoin the band, he said, “Yes and no. Yes in a big way, and, for my own little reasons, no. But yes in a big way. Of course, because we’re just a natural team. So, when you’re natural, it feels natural to you. If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend, and they feel so great to you, and you have such a great relationship in a certain way, what, are you gonna look for someone else? This person works for me. They know me; I know them; and it’s a great marriage. But maybe there’s something there that doesn’t work. So, it didn’t happen. But it could have. And I mean it really could have.”
