Three former KISS guitarists, Vinnie Vincent, Ace Frehley and Bruce Kulick, took the stage together to perform some songs from their former band for the first time in KISSTORY at this year’s Creatures Fest.
CREATURES FEST is taking place this weekend at Nashville’s Sonesta Nashville Airport Hotel.
Vinnie Vincent kicked off his set on Saturday evening (May 28) with a resounding demonstration of guitar leads before breaking into the KISS classic “I Love It Loud“. He was soon joined by Bruce Kulick for the track “War Machine” before original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley appeared with the duo to belt out the classic tracks “Deuce” and “Cold Gin“.
Apparently, “phones/video/audio” were prohibited from Vinnie Vincent”s set, therefore most of the footage available online captures portions of the three players performing together.
Vincent — who was a member of KISS when the band publicly “unmasked” in 1983 — made several public appearances in 2018 after spending the past two decades out of the public eye.
In April 2018, Vincent joined Gene Simmons at the KISS bassist/vocalist’s “Vault” event in Nashville, Tennessee. He later said in an interview that he felt that got “a cold reception” and was “treated very indifferently” by Gene at the event.
Ace Frehley and original KISS drummer Peter Criss reunited on stage Friday night (May 27) at the festival to pull out the KISS classics “Hard Luck Woman” and “Strange Ways” to a rousing response from those in attendance.
