If you ask Gene Simmons, former Kiss guitarist Vinnie Vincent is “his own worst enemy.”
Commenting on Vincent’s recent Kiss-related trademark applications, Simmons declared that his former bandmate was “about to get into some more legal problems, because he tried to trademark the makeup and to trademark ‘Vinnie Vincent Kiss’, the logo.”
With Vincent about to play his first show in three decades, the trademark applications suggest that he’s possibly planning to put together a new band to play songs from his brief but productive time with Kiss. He has, however, also alluded to reuniting the Vinnie Vincent Invasion, which he led after being fired from Kiss in 1984.
