The NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show is being held January 13-16, 2011 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Last year's NAMM drew 85,000 registrants from 100 countries and attracted 1,400-plus exhibitors. The NAMM show is one of the largest music product trade shows in the world. NAMM show is **NOT** open to the public. The only attendees are NAMM member companies and their invited guests. Vincent replaced lead guitarist Ace Frehley in 1982 and played with KISS for two years. He left the group on bad terms, and later claimed KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley owed him royalties for his work on KISS' 1983 album "Lick It Up", according to the Courthouse News Service. However, a federal judge in Los Angeles ruled against him and awarded the KISS defendants about $66,400 in attorney's fees and $15,400 in costs. Last June, Vincent lost his 6th Circuit appeal of an order barring him from seeking bankruptcy protection from paying more than $81,000 to his former bandmates.
