From the 8/26/09 news:

"Former KISS guitarist VINNIE VINCENT has sued the band several times since he left the group back in 1984 - but this time he's thrown a cable network into the mix. Vincent is suing the band, along with A&E Television Networks, for using his image without his permission. According to a lawsuit filed earlier this month, Vincent claims his image was used in a DVD boxed set called Kissology Volume II. In addition to that, Vincent claims his image image was used as part of the 'roast' episode of A&E's show Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Vincent also claims Simmons defamed him on an A&E show called Private Sessions, though he doesn't specify what defamatory statements were made. Vincent is seeking unspecified damages."

VV and his lawsuits are getting old. This guy hasn't put out an album/CD in like 15 years... let alone one that was decent in over 20 years. He was an asshole to his original band members, calling them parasites or something along those lines.

I don't like Gene Simmons. He has whored out the KISS name... but VV should let sleeping dogs lie, and go back to making albums like his Invasion back in 1986!! That's where he shined!

Yeah,
but if they used his image and he got nothing in rteturn he deserves the payment. I mean, it's what it is. If they use your image they have to pay you, and that's it.

I mean it's a legal thing, right? You can agree or not in the music aspect, but what is fair is fair.
The guy deserves his [i]pesos [/i].
