In a new interview with Mike Brunn at the “May Metal Madness event, ex-KISS Vinnie Vincent talked about whether he felt he could rejoin KISS.
Here’s what he said:
“I think — I think… Those are very important two little words, because it’s me thinking this. But we formed this thing where we were… The Vinnie, Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley]… The bond was getting there creatively. And we’re talking about at that time. In my humble opinion, in my heart of hearts, in my private world of my own mind, I believe that there was a moment where… Whoever was driving the car was gonna turn the wheel, but there was a moment where it could have easily happened where I would have been back in the band. But this is my opinion. Don’t take it as someone else’s opinion.”
When further pushed on whether he wanted to join, he said:
“Yes and no. Yes in a big way, and, for my own little reasons, no. But yes in a big way. Of course, because we’re just a natural team. So, when you’re natural, it feels natural to you. If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend, and they feel so great to you, and you have such a great relationship in a certain way, what, are you gonna look for someone else? This person works for me.
They know me; I know them; and it’s a great marriage. But maybe there’s something there that doesn’t work. So, it didn’t happen. But it could have. And I mean it really could have.”
