May 24 : VINNIE VINCENT Introduces His New Singer SCOTT BOARD At 'Judgment Day' Listening Party In Nashville
From :
Former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent says that his VINNIE VINCENT INVASION album "Judgment Day (Guitarmageddon Pt. I)" could finally arrive before the end of the year.

Scott Board and Vinnie VincentThe 70-year-old musician, whose real name is Vincent John Cusano, made the comment after holding a listening party for "Judgment Day (Guitarmageddon Pt. I)" on May 19 and May 20 at Starstruck Entertainment Studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Fans who paid $500 got to hear "Judgment Day" — which features vocals by Robert Fleischman, who also sang on VINNIE VINCENT INVASION's self-titled 1986 debut — and take part in a jam with Vincent. Vinnie also introduced his new singer, Scott Board, with whom he performed at the Nashville event.

In a social media post Vinnie wrote: "Man, that was a happy proud moment for me. Three years in the making..with blistering performances by my friend Rob Fleishman and yours truly. It felt like VVI #1 all over again. Its not a record for the 50 year old crowd tho... unless you're 25 at heart. Lol.

"There's one more studio tweak session I need to complete in raising the vocal levels a bit on all the songs and then off to the record plant to press," he added. "Expect 6 months at least for vinyl production. But my moment of happiness was jammin it out with my new singer Scott Board in our first studio shredd performance on some of my favorite songs."

Back in May 2021, Vincent spoke to The Rock Experience with Mike Brunn about his plans to finally release some of his previously unheard music that was recorded over the course of the last three decades. He said: "This is my crowning moment of joy that I've been waiting for many, many, many years, just to be able to say to everybody in truth and reality, but we are finally mixing the two-inch masters that I finally have control over my two-inch tape masters of all of my songs. And we're gonna be releasing new Vinnie Vincent music on vinyl. And the artwork is great. We're finished with almost all of the artwork. And yes, the 'Guitarmageddon' album is in the process of being mixed right now. We just finished mixing the new 'Euphoria' tracks that no one's ever heard. And it's pretty phenomental."

He continued: "I would have to say in all good conscience and honesty that I'm very impressed with what I'm hearing, and I'm blown away. And I'm finally able to say it's a new era of Vinnie Vincent music being released. And I'm so proud to be able to say that. And as things start to open up and there are tours again, you can bet that I'll be out there."

April 27 : Billy Sheehan (TALAS vs.2) & Jeff Scott Soto cover Peter Criss song for late singer Phil Naro on "Buffalo Rock City II"
From : Buffalo Rock City - KISS Tribute (facebook)
Buffalo Rock City announced that there will be a second KISS Tribute Album "Buffalo Rock City II" coming out later this year. On May 3 the lead off single "Love for Sale" from the album will be released. "Love For Sale" (as some of you might know) was a Peter Criss song written in the 1990s for his solo band CRISS, which never released by Peter during his CRISS era, and at the time the song was being developed, Phil Naro (RIP) was in the band and lent a hand in shaping the track.
(NOTE from KRR : In 1999 "Love For Sale" ended up on
The Mark St. John Project EP, which project EP features Phil Naro on lead vocals).

Phil Naro had planned on participating on "Buffalo Rock City II," but due to hi untimely passing on May 3, 2021 (the release date of the single marks the 2 year anniversary of his passing), we asked the surviving members of Billy Sheehan (TALAS vs.2) with Jeff Scott Soto to record a song in Phil's memory, and no better of a song for a KISS tribute album than a song that Phil helped write with the original drummer of KISS.

Here's the teaser/ad video for the "Love for Sale" single, which you purchase directly from Bandcamp on May 3, 2023 at
All proceeds go to the Maria Love Convalescent Fund, a Buffalo, NY based charity, which provides interim financial assistance for the people in the community with convalescent care needs. Again, this song is dedicated to the memory and musical legacy of Phil Naro. Let him never be forgotten!
