Vincent was known as the Ahnk Warrior within Kiss lore and was the replacement of guitar virtuoso Ace Frehley. Vincent started his own project, the Vinnie Vincent Explosion, after he was kicked out of the band in 1984.

Vincent left the band due to a continuing rift with other members because of his five-to-eight-minute live solos and refusal to sign an employment agreement.
