On the Vinnie Vincent Invasion video below, Mark Slaughter does his best Robert Fleischman imitation, as he lip syncs to Robert’s vocals on the tune, Boyz are Gonna Rock. Mark Slaughter joined the band after the first album was recorded.
Didn’t ya’ll hear?? VINNIE’S NOW A W-O-M-A-N….he (she) had “SURGERY” years ago!!!!
The Vinnie Vincent Invasion were horrible on both albums. Everything was centered around the solos and they were just all over place without much rhyme or reason. Just complete self indulgent crap, but I liked Vinnie in KISS though. Poor Bobby Rock, he was in VVI, Nitro and Nelson. What a lousy resume for him.
I’m a HUGE KISS fan and I like Vinnie Vincent. The thing about Vinnie is that he’s a solid songwriter and a fine guitarist but he plays way too over the top. If he played within the songs instead of overblowing them, he would have had more success. The image didn’t help either. Pink wasn’t a Metal color, or even a Glam color, in ’86. I respect the guys playing & songwriting but the ideas outside of music were ridiculous.

Gotta love him kissing the guitar before smashing it. Classic.
Pink and Fire. You can’t go wrong with that. ;)
What the hell happened to Salughter’s hair? It looks like a bad Halloween fright wig.
That vid has got it all for the 80’s rock fan.
I loved VVI. Still do. I want Vinnie to make a comeback. It would be bigger than the ’96 KISS reunion! Yeah!
I loved Vinnie Vincent Invasion’s 2nd album, All Systems Go. Mark Slaughter’s vocals were awesome, and Vinnie’s guitar playing was awesome too, just a little over the top.
This video has one and only one redeeming quality: the burning man. Otherwise, it’s just another of those staged “live” videos for perhaps the dumbest guitar playing in history.
