Vinnie Vincent Is Suing Kiss Again


August 23, 2009

TMZ is reporting that former Kiss guitarist Vinnie Vincent has sued the band several times since he left the group back in 1984 — but this time he’s thrown a cable network into the mix.

Vincent is suing the band, along with A&E Television Networks, for using his image without his permission. According to a lawsuit filed earlier this month, Vincent claims his image was used in a DVD boxed set called “Kissology Volume II.” In addition to that, Vincent claims his image was used as part of the “roast” episode of A&E’s show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels.”

Vincent also claims Simmons defamed him on an A&E show called “Private Sessions,” though he doesn’t specify what defamatory statements were made.

Vincent is seeking unspecified damages.
