A few months ago we received a handful of photos purportedly from Vinnie Vincent’s private collection. The pictures were supplied by a fan that claimed to have had a close relationship with the former KISS guitarist and had supposedly been jilted. The photos received quite a few views as well as some mud slinging back and forth in the comments section. Read for yourself.
We have now received a whole new set of Vinnie Vincent & KISS photos from the 1982-1983 Creatures of the Night era. These pictures were supplied by a member of the Vinnie Vincent Fan Forum and, as far as we know, are relatively unseen. Could these photos come from the same source as the previous ones? No one here knows for sure but it is interesting.
Many of the shots appear to be from a promotional photo shoot while others seem to be possibly from an in-store appearance. This era of the band was short-lived, thus photos with the Simmons/Stanley/Carr/Vincent lineup of KISS are a bit more scarce.

TORONTO – Red was the colour du jour at the Heart Truth Fashion Show on Thursday, which had a nearly all-Canadian, all-female roster of stars who donned scarlet dresses by some of the nation’s finest designers in what was just as much a celebration of women as it was an event to bring awareness to their number one killer.
The Heart & Stroke Foundation’s fifth annual event, which took place at The Carlu, matched a who’s-who of Canadians with luxe gowns for a one-time runway show and schmoozefest filled with spirited music and mirth.
Celebrity personalities, including finale models Shannon Tweed-Simmons and husband Gene Simmons – referred to on the official program as “Rock God/Media Mogul” – did more than just brave the crowd of hundreds, they hammed it up in their own special way for a wall of photographer’s at the end of the runway (the Simmons even kissed).
