FORMER VINNIE VINCENT DRUMMER DISCUSSES MAKING OF UNRELEASED ALBUM
VINNIE VINCENT SPECIAL PART 5 - EPISODE 135
DECIBEL GEEK PODCAST
The Decibel Geek Podcast has released the fifth installment of it's Vinnie Vincent Special with Episode 135 - Vinnie Vincent Special Part 5 w/Andre Labelle.
In this in-depth discussion, hosts Aaron Camaro and Chris Czynszak are joined by former Vinnie Vincent and current drummer of The Sky Andre LaBelle. Andre was tapped by Vincent for the recording of the still-unreleased Guitars from Hell album that was in production from 1989 - 1992. LaBelle shares his memories of auditioning for the enigmatic former KISS guitarist, the amazing amount of equipment available, and the meticulous recording techniques that seemed to define Vincent as the extremist of which he has been described.
The album went through numerous titles during production. In this long-form discussion, LaBelle recalls a period where Vincent was bouncing between projects; his own and his contribution at the time to KISS' upcoming 1992 release and how one of his titles plays into KISStory.
Other topics discussed in this episode include Vinnie's method for punching in his guitar parts in the studio as well as how budgets were stretched and tensions caused a break from Vincent's then-label Enigma; causing the project to be shelved to this day.
