Vinnie Vincent Invasion was an American glam metal band formed in 1984 by former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent.Forming the band in the mid-1980s, Vinnie Vincent recruited bassist Dana Strum, who had served as a talent scout in L.A., recruiting band members for the likes of Ozzy Osbourne. Because he had found both Jake E. Lee and the late Randy Rhoads for Ozzy Osbourne, Paul Stanley had contacted Osbourne to inquire about where he found the guitarists, and was given Strum's name. Unable to find anyone KISS considered to be on Vincent's level, Strum decided to find Vincent himself in hopes of working together. Bobby Rock came on board as the drummer. With the nucleus of the band completed, the band searched for a lead vocalist.Former Journey singer Robert Fleischman provided vocals on Vinnie Vincent Invasion's self-titled debut album. The record included primarily the style of glam metal, with much of it re-worked versions of demos Vincent recorded in 1982 with former New England members Hirsch Gardner, Gary Shea, and Jimmy Waldo under the band name Warrior, with Vincent essentially replacing John Fannon as guitarist and vocalist. Warrior disbanded when Vincent was selected to be a member of KISS.Fleischman exited the band during a contract dispute and a video was produced for the song "Boyz Are Gonna Rock" with new vocalist Mark Slaughter lipsyncing over Fleischman's vocal track. With Slaughter now on board, the band released their second album, All Systems Go in May 1988. The album featured one of the group's best-known hits, "Ashes to Ashes," and "Love Kills," which appeared on the A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master soundtrack.Later in 1988, the band was released from their contract with Chrysalis Records. Having grown annoyed with what they perceived to be Vincent's domination of the project, Slaughter and Strum left to form the band Slaughter, which would go on to have success. Bobby Rock has played as a touring drummer for Slaughter, but was not in the initial line-up. After Vinnie Vincent Invasion broke up, he briefly joined Nitro, later Nelson, and then went on to play as a session musician with Gary Hoey and other bands. Subsequent to the band's release from their Chrysalis contract and the resultant split of Slaughter and Strum to form Slaughter, Vincent reunited with original Vinnie Vincent Invasion vocalist Robert Fleischman and recorded the unreleased album Pyro Messiah (aka Guitars From Hell). Andre LaBelle, (drummer from 1989 to 1992), along with Fleischman, formed a new band "The Sky" in 2011.A tribute album entitled KISS MY ANKH: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent was released by SplitScreen Entertainment on August 27, 2008. The album consists of new recordings of songs from Vincent's careers with KISS and Vinnie Vincent Invasion. Featured artists include Steve Brown of Trixter, Troy Patrick Farrell of White Lion, T.J. Racer of Nitro, Sheldon Tarsha of Adler's Appetite, Chris Caffery of Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Ryan Roxie and Rick Marty of Alice Cooper, and rock and roll comic C.C. Banana, who performs a parody of the KISS song "Unholy" (rewritten as a roast of Danger Danger vocalist Ted Poley).
More form the recent Universal Music Japan reissue series 2016: VINNIE VINCENT INVASION self-titled on SHM-CD remastered.Though contributing to Creatures Of The Night as a session player before being named as Frehley's replacement in December 1982, Vincent for all the public knew, was the official guitarist in Kiss and played all the lead guitar on Lick it Up.Following his departure from Kiss in mid-1984, he formed the band Vinnie Vincent Invasion with all-pro crew of LA musicians including former Journey singer Robert Fleischman and future Slaughter's bassist Dana Strum.Vincent, born Vincent John Cusano in 1952, was an anonymous session player boosted to overnight rock stardom when, in 1982, he was brought in to replace Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley. Although Cusano sought to retain his birth name as a member of Kiss, Gene Simmons, presiding entrepreneurial spirit of the band, invented the stage name Vinnie Vincent (Vinnie would keep the name).Signed bt Chrysalis Records, Vinnie Vincent Invasion debuted in 1986 with its self-titled cracker.The record included primarily glam metal style, with much of it re-worked versions of demos Vincent recorded years before with former New England members Hirsch Gardner, Gary Shea, and Jimmy Waldo under the band name Warrior, with Vincent essentially replacing John Fannon as guitarist and vocalist. Warrior disbanded when Vincent was selected to be a member of Kiss.Although Robert Fleischman, who served for a short time as the lead singer of Journey, recorded the vocals on the album, he exited the band due a contract dispute and was quickly replaced by new vocalist Mark Slaughter.Right from track number one, you know what you’re getting: ‘Boys Are Gonna Rock’ has two and a half guitar solos. Oh yeah, this is a guitar-driven hard rockin' album.Vinnie’s screeching staccato performance is breathtaking, and on the accompanying video clip he looks feral, completely out of control. He wields his guitar like a flamethrower. He spurts out thousands of notes, like burning sparks, sometimes hammering the strings with a microphone while on his knees. For teenaged boys/boyz stewed to their eyeballs with boiling loads of testosterone, watching this on MTV was a blast.At the conclusion of the killer rocker ‘Animal,’ Vincent plays faster and harder and faster and harder and now your neighbors are banging on the wall and your bookcase speakers are starting to melt and your dog is in obvious pain and suddenly you suspect that everything in your house is going to implode. And then Vinnie collapses, and then you hear six seconds of reverb.Other highlights include groovy 'Twisted', the pumping 'I Wanna Be Your Victim' and the sorely underrated power ballad 'Back On The Streets', which was later redone by Europe's John Norum and garnered maybe an inch more attention.It should be also noted that last track 'Invasion' ultimately ends with 151 seconds of Vincent replicating on a twisted electric guitar a car alarm (or perhaps a grain elevator). Crazy...
