The Associated Press reports that ex-KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent lost a Supreme Court appeal Monday (Oct. 2) in a dispute over royalties with his former bandmates. (See Vincent's petition in PDF format at this location.)Justices declined to consider lower court rulings dismissing Vincent's claim that he is owed royalties for his contributions to the band's 1983 album "Lick It Up". Vincent, whose real name is Vincent Cusano, played with KISS from 1982 to 1984, co-writing "I Love it Loud", "Lick it Up" and other songs.
