NEWS UPDATE : July 2015

July 15 : New Andrew London single feat. Bruce Kulick (free download)
From : Andrew London (facebook)
Growing up in California, I have always loved the summertime. This year I’ve been driving the coast highway, finding a few songs along the way.

Today, I am excited to share the first single “American Summer” as a free download.
Make sure to roll your windows down and give it a listen.

Earlier this year Bruce and I sat in a Hollywood studio where some of the biggest records of the '60s were made and recorded guitars for the song “American Summer.”
We wanted a bright, Petty-meets-Townshend vibe to match the “driving the California coast” sound of the song.
Bruce’s guitars are all over - A hi-strung acoustic starts the song, his Gibson “Elvis Dove” acoustic, and plenty of electrics - a cherry SG with p90s and a Les Paul Jr on the rhythms. We were all smiles leaving the studio and proud to have the song available for FREE download on

The Full Story Of Vinnie Vincent's Awesome Pre-Kiss Band

From :
Standard KISSTORY will tell you that before he joined KISS in 1982, guitarist Vinnie Vincent (AKA Vinnie Cusano) was in a band called WARRIOR with some of the members of the band NEW ENGLAND. Not much else seems to be said about this band except that their demos have turned up in collector's circles and online.

This brief bit of information always left me curious with many unanswered questions.
Who were Warrior? What was their KISS connection? Did they do gigs? How serious was the band? Is that really Vinnie Vincent singing lead vocals on those alleged WARRIOR demos ? And the one that has caused the most debate amongst KISS fans for years, is Vinnie as unpredictable and crazy as KISS like to make out?

The other members of WARRIOR were Jimmy Waldo on keys, Gary Shea on bass and Hirsh Gardner on drums. Together with John Fannon on guitar and lead vocals, they had been New England. The story of Warrior actually starts not with Vinnie but with NEW ENGLAND
