Former KISS Guitarist, Vinnie Vincent, Charged with Aggravated Assault

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20...xt|FRONTPAGE|p


MURFREESBORO — A former KISS guitarist was charged with one count of aggravated assault on Saturday in connection with an incident involving his wife.

When officers went to the guitarist’s home to make an arrest, they found four sealed containers with dead dogs inside, according to a sheriff's incident report.

A booking officer at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center confirmed Vinnie Vincent, whose real name is Vincent John Cusano, was charged with one count of aggravated assault on Saturday.

Cusano was lead guitarist for the rock band KISS between 1982 and 1984 and replaced original band member Ace Frehley.

Diane Cusano, Vincent Cusano’s wife, showed up at the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office Saturday covered in blood and reportedly intoxicated, according to the RCSO incident report.

Authorities immediately called an ambulance to transport Cusano to Middle Tennessee Medical Center here in Murfreesboro.

Cusano explained she had been in an argument with her husband over a woman he had been talking to, the report reads.

I guess he got mad when his wife refused to lick it up.

The chances of him beating this rap are a million to one.

His sentence will be something like 100,000 Years?

When he gets out of prison, he will produce a soup can shaped Deuce.

Re: Former KISS Guitarist, Vinnie Vincent, Charged with Aggravated Assault

I did a Rutherford county property search for "Cusano", and it seems that two properties are listed in his wife's name. I'm up in Nashville; maybe we should cruise by these places blasting some Kiss.

Re: Former KISS Guitarist, Vinnie Vincent, Charged with Aggravated Assault

Vinnie is such a winner.

Stories came out years ago about how he sold a fan a guitar he claimed was one of his favorites that he had used on stage, but that he had just bought it cheap and sold it to the kid for a ton of money.

He also reportedly took orders for a cassette box set that would feature a bunch of demos and unreleased tracks, never shipped the set, but kept the money anyway.

He's attempted to sue Gene and Paul multiple times and lost badly each time.

This latest incident doesn't surprise me.

Re: Former KISS Guitarist, Vinnie Vincent, Charged with Aggravated Assault

A couple of years ago, I heard that Mark Slaughter lives here and does bookings for The Wildhorse Saloon. Perhaps he "took care" of his former bandmate's dogs...

Those addresses are for two houses next to each other.

I think she got off lightly, as the Sheriff's report states he was dressed to kill.

That's why I chose to withhold a "Burn Bitch Burn" comment.

If you want weird, download Speeball Jamm from amazon. 99 cents for a 71 minute guitar solo. Sounds like it was recorded on a dictaphone. The word "speedball" in the title should tell you all you need to know about this one.
