"I didn't know George very well and we had friction from day one. We just have totally different personalities."

"Jeff (Pilson) was the most multi-talented of anybody in the band. He plays bass well. He plays guitar well and he plays piano. He's multi-faceted and was always good at recording."

"For me, the masterpiece is Dysfunctional."

MARK SLAUGHTER On 3 Sides Of The Coin


In Episode 123, April 21, 2015. Mark Slaughter Gives the Not So Pretty Details on Vinnie Vincent. What was the very first comment Vinnie Vincent made to Mark? What was the first comment Gene Simmons said to Mark when Slaughter toured with KISS? Who got the Vinnie Vincent Invasion their record deal? How did Slaughter get their record deal? How did Vinnie treat Mark on stage? Just what kind of a person is Vinnie Vincent? And of course... did Vinnie Vincent save KISS?

A couple revelations by Mark Slaughter:

Vinnie hears Mark sing for the very first time and says "That's bullshit." "That sounds like shit."

Before a show in Philadelphia, Vinnie tells Mark, "You really sounded like garbage last night and if you don't pull it together you're not singing on the record."

Follow Mark Slaughter online at www.MarkSlaughter.com and order his brand new solo album Reflections In A Rear View Mirror.

https://youtu.be/sUdT3jQdZsw?t=1405 23 minute mark the interview begins.

Since launching a year ago Three Sides of the Coin has been viewed or listened to over 1,000,000 times. In the last year, Three Sides of the Coin has been joined by special guests including former KISS lead guitarist Bruce Kulick, the Black Veil Brides' Andy Biersack, Frank Munoz associate producer for Ace Frehley's Anomaly album, award winning songwriter Adam Mitchell, Ed Kanon (Peter Criss' drum tech), and Kevin Valentine (drummer on KISS' Psycho Circus album). Three Sides of the Coin was recently picked (October 2013) as a 'What's Hot' podcast by Apple's iTunes.

In the early '90s, Michael Brandvold launched the fifth ever website on the Internet devoted to KISS, KISS Otaku. He was the first to build, launch and maintain Kissonline.com (KISS' official web presence). Tommy Sommers has spent many years on the record show circuit selling memorabilia and meeting many KISS fans.

It's only our opinion... it's neither right nor wrong.

MARK TREMONTI Talks To Guitar International

Artist: 
 
By: Robert Cavuoto
Mark Tremonti – photo credit: Robert Cavuoto
 
Guitarist Mark Tremonti seeks to explore and discover new walls to breakdown in a never-ending quest to master the guitar. As he reaches the horizon of the guitar, he finds a plateau, only to find yet another world of mastery to work toward.
It’s the magic of the instrument and the essence of inventiveness and creativity and for the guitarist, an unquenchable thirst.
 
What separates the innovators from the followers is the courage to try something different and overcoming the challenges, to break the rules and rewrite them at every opportunity.
We all know that this was the case with guitar greats like Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, and Randy Rhoads. Mark Tremonti can be added to this list of innovators as he is finding that there are still walls in guitar playing to break down.
With his powerful and unfaltering right hand he is known for his horse galloping and string muting. With his left hand he marries sheer speed with technical intricacies. Combine that with his experimentation of tuning and prolific songwriting, there should be not doubts as to why he is a guitar player for a new generation.
 
He is back with his solo band and putting out the group’s sophomore CD, Cauterize, slated for release on June 9 via Fret 12 Records. The album features Mark on vocals/guitars, Eric Friedman on guitars, Wolfgang Van Halen on bass and Garrett Whitlock on drums. It’s produced by long-time friend and collaborator, Michael “Elvis” Baskette

One On One With Mitch Lafon - WHITESNAKE

Artist: 
 
In episode 105 of One On One With Mitch Lafon, Mitch is joined by the Voice of Rock and Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale as well as Art Alexakis Of Everclear.

In my exclusive 47 minute interview with David Coverdale, he talks about the different guitarists he's worked with over the years including Jimmy Page, Doug Aldrich, Joel Hoekstra, Ritchie Blackmore, Glenn Hughes and more. His plans for a Deep Purple reunion. The planning, making and execution of their brilliant new The Purple album. Doing the rounds with Madonna. The Rock 'N Roll Hall Of Fame. Remembering Jon Lord. What is next for him and Whitesnake and much much more.

DAVID COVERDALE quotes:

1. On the Future of Whitesnake: "This might be my fond farewell to the big arena rock stuff."
2. On his time with DEEP PURPLE: "I did the best I could for the three years I was involved."
3. On a Deep Purple Reunion: "It would be a lot of fun and I certainly would be down for that."
4. On the 1987 Whitesnake album: "I thought it was a bomb. And not a bomb in a positive sense. I thought my career was over."
5. On his various guitarists: "I didn't want to go into guitar-hero land." And "Whitesnake is a great guitar gig."
6. Comparing Doug Aldrich to Adrian Vandenberg: "Adrian is a much better chef."
7. Is he interested in doing new music? "I have a feeling that my career has come full circle. I'm not competing with the young David Coverdale, but I do have a feeling that I don't want to challenge myself anymore. It really is exhausting."

Decibel Geek Podcast - MARK SLAUGHTER


MARK SLAUGHTER ON NEW SOLO ALBUM, TOURING STORIES (KISS, IRON MAIDEN), AND THE END OF THE VINNIE VINCENT INVASION (AUDIO)

Decibel Geek podcast hosts Chris Czynszak and Aaron Camaro recently interviewed Mark Slaughter for a talk about his new solo album, Slaughter, touring with KISS, and his days working with now-reclusive guitarist Vinnie Vincent in the Vinnie Vincent Invasion. A few excerpts follow:

On the autobiographical nature of his new solo album, 'Reflections in a Rearview Mirror:'

'As records go by in all of our lives, they really are the soundtrack of our lives and that's really what I was trying to do with this record; to make a record that is not only a soundtrack to where people would identify with it, but I used a lot of sounds that were part of my life. My dog is snoring on the first track. My mom, who is no longer with me and my father who is no longer with me are on the record.'

On the decision to put out his first solo album and the reaction from Slaughter bandmate Dana Strum:

'I really didn't get into  it real heavy. I was just recording and recording and then I had [producer] ) Michael (Wagener) do it and I said 'Y'know what, I'm gonna put some stuff out' and he kinda discounted it just as 'Y'know, whatever.' He recorded a record with Vince (Neil), you know he's doing stuff. So, it's me just being an artist.'

On memories of a summer shed tour that Slaughter, promoting their debut album 'Stick it to Ya', opened for KISS in 1990:

'There's something about the air at nighttime in the summertime. You've got your beer, you've got your friends; it is magical and I miss that. A week before we got back with them (KISS), Stevie Ray Vaughan had that helicopter crash. It was Alpine Valley. Literally, that was a week before. So, I get  up onstage and you could see the charred lawn where he died. Right before 'Fly to the Angels' I said, 'Look, I'd like to dedicate this next song to Stevie Ray Vaughan. This is 'Fly to the Angels' and the whole place, 20,000 people... there wasn't one lighter that wasn't in the sky. I still get goosebumps to this day where I go 'Wow.' It was almost like a religious experience at that point.'

On his first discussion with Gene Simmons when Slaughter showed up at pre-tour rehearsals in Lubbock, TX in 1990:

' It was so funny. Gene, the first day, he said 'Listen, we are not going to discuss Vinnie Vincent ever on this whole tour.' And I said 'Okay, Gene.' And then 5 minutes later he goes, 'You know what really bothers me (laughs)....I think we were both were in agreement that Vinnie's a very talented guy but stood in his own way.'

On Vinnie Vincent being misunderstood as just a shredding guitarist from the 80's:

'I'll never forget when we were on tour with Iron Maiden and I was talking guitar player talk with him and I go 'I love Jeff Beck' and he starts playing this Jeff Beck stuff and I'm like 'you've got to be kidding me' and the next thing you know Dave Murray and all the guys from Iron Maiden and their techs are standing on the outside of our dressing room watching him play this stuff and going 'Mate, why don't you play like that?' and Vinnie goes, 'Because it's boring.' He was just trying to be recognized with the shredders.'

On the strain in the studio regarding direction for Vinnie Vincent Invasion followup (and Mark's debut), 'All Systems Go:'

'I sang that record twice. I sang with Vinnie the way the he wanted me to do it and I sang with Dana after Vinnie left.'

On the rumors over many years that Vinnie Vincent was kicked out of his own band:

'I had to sign a Leaving Member Agreement with Chrysalis as well as Dana and Bobby due to the fact that Steve Stevens left Billy Idol. Jeff Aldrich, who is the A&R guy for Chrysalis said 'We cannot afford to lose our talent if these people leave. We need to have them sign an agreement that they will record 4 songs and we will have the option to pick up their option under the premise of the record agreement that was done between the artist they're signed under. In other words, in Vinnie Vincent's record deal; when we were done in 1988, when I walked off the stage and never saw him again, we had to record 4 songs for the label which we did in 1988, going into 89 on New Years Eve we were in the studio; Tim, Blas, Dana and I. 'Fly to the Angels' is one of those songs. We do the songs, we give it to Bud Carr, who managed Kansas. We take it to the record label and they go, 'We're definitely picking up Mark's option.' They had already dropped Vinnie because they had disagreements. They didn't like him and he didn't like them and that was done. They, basically, by picking up my option, gave me his record deal.'

'Vinnie refused to do radio interviews. He wouldn't walk up a set of steps. He said 'Is there an elevator? I'm not walking up those steps' It was a long set of steps and maybe he would've been too winded. I don't know what the issue was but I walked I walked up those steps and I did the interview. I was out there meeting people and I was shaking hands and I was doing what arists like Bonnie Raitt, who's a heritage artist, who's done this her whole frickin' life of meeting people and being an entertainer, never stopped doing.'

'I called Mike (Bone) [Chrysalis Records president] at one point when Vinnie and Dana got into it and Vinnie pulled me down, with his manager at the time, and said 'Are you gonna be in my band or are you gonna go with Dana?' I said I'd rather be in the gutter with Dana.'

'In Sacramento, Dana and I were at the bar during the day at soundcheck having a soda and MTV was on and the 'Love Kills' video came on. I looked up and I just said 'Can you fuckin' believe that?' it said 'The Vinnie Vincent Invasion (featuring Mark Slaughter).' I was like 'Wow, okay.' I knew I had the interest of the label at that point. I'll never forget that Dana said 'And of all fucking times, this is the most publicity that the band's got and it's over tomorrow.'

On Tracii Guns being a candidate for Slaughter:

'He called me when we were done; when Vinnie was over. He said 'You know how I play, you know how good I am.' And I said 'I do know, Tracii. But you know here's milk and cookies which is me and Mr. vampire Hollywood. You know one of these things is not like the other. Not saying that there's anything wrong with that but there is a little bit of a different image so to speak. In my mind I was thinking more of just a guys-next-door band and not trying to get too deep into an image.'
