The ex-Kiss guitarist Vinnie Vincent (from 1982 to 1984) said in an interview on Rock And Roll Experience With Mike Brunn that he is open to join the band in their currently farewell tour. The mysterious guitarist replaced Ace Frehley in 82, as the “Ankh Warrior” and toured with the group in support of “Creatures Of The Night”.
When asked about the possibility, he said:
“Well, it’s not something I’ve thought about lately. I think there was something that my lawyer had been in contact with them about a year ago. As far as I know, nothing came of it. And it wasn’t something I thought about — after that moment had passed, it wasn’t anything I thought about anymore.”
“I don’t know what they’re doing. I don’t wanna assume anything — it’s not for me to second guess. It seems like they’ve got the band that they’re doing this with. I don’t know if they’re having past members play — I don’t know.”
“Well, that’s as far as my thoughts go with it. If this is something that they want to approach, all they’ve gotta do is give me a call, and we’ll take it from there.”
