# CDLXIX…For “The Ankh”…

As I haven’t written on here in quite some time (lack of interest has led to my lack of writing), I figured that I would leave this snippet from my now-defunct attempt at being a paid author…

# cxii…Outcast but Talented Guitarist…

Today’s date, August 6th, is the birthdate of former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent (1952), who, according to a quote from Wikipedia, felt like he was “imprisoned in a cubicle…like it was someone else’s house”…which was pretty much his feelings after two studio releases with the mega-powered band.  His skilled guitar work graces the albums “Creatures of the Night” (1982) and “Lick It Up” (1983) and is also credited with guitar workings on “Revenge”, as well.

He has also had some success with his eponymous band, The Vinnie Vincent Invasion, as well as collaborations with such greats as Wendy O. Williams, Peter Criss, John Waite and The Bangles.  In the overall big picture, however, he is currently celebrating his 47th year in the business (1970) and, as such, deservedly belongs here as a celebrity of note.

Also celebrating with “The Ankh” are/were; late comedian/actress Lucille Ball (1911-1989), late actor Robert Mitchum (1917-1997), late actress Selma Diamond (1920-1985), late art virtuoso Andy Warhol (1928-1987) and late wrestling star Dino Bravo (1949-1993).

On the end of the list are; former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey (1957), famed director M. Night Shyamalan (1970), former Spice Girls’ beauty Geri Halliwell (1972), former “Punky Brewster” star Soleil Moon Frye (1976) and former wrestler and wife of Matt Hardy, Reby Sky, was born in 1986.

Until tomorrow, as it’s a date on my calendar that cannot be forgotten…
