Former KISS Guitarist VINNIE VINCENT Loses Bankruptcy Appeal

Annie Youderian of the Courthouse News Service reports that former KISS guitarist Vincent John Cusano, a.k.a. Vinnie Vincent, lost his 6th Circuit appeal of an order barring him from seeking bankruptcy protection from paying more than $81,000 to his former band mates, whom he unsuccessfully sued for royalties in 1997.

Cusano replaced lead guitarist Ace Frehley in 1982 and played with the band for two years. He departed on bad terms, and later claimed KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley owed him royalties for his work on KISS' 1983 album "Lick It Up".

However, a federal judge in Los Angeles ruled against him and awarded the KISS defendants about $66,400 in attorney's fees and $15,400 in costs.
