VINNIE VINCENT Tribute C.C. Banana, Ted Poley Song
I wanted to do this story. For me I thought it was hilarious.
About a song that got squeezed in to the tribute album
"KISS MY ANKH: A Tribute To VINNIE VINCENT."
The Point of how it got there points to treating people fairly.
That is really what the music industry should run like.
Like a non zombie music industry!
If your in the music industry you should never take life serious!
You learn what is BS with your experiences, so you would now
know it's BS and not take it serious.
Or also with family members of famous musicians should
not take things serious and know BS! Like if you have a famous
family member that used cocaine in the 80's and was well known for it.
Then in the 90's You learn to literally jump out of a car of a first date
when in her car she hits a curb and her glove box pops open and a little bag
of cocaine lands in your lap, with the date wide eyed looking at you.
This date did not make it out of the parking lot!
The first thing that pops in your mind is getting pulled over and a cop
finding out your related to a past famous cocaine user and it
might be a backward thinking cop being Oklahoma!
So you say BS and you run!
But the main point of this story is to treat people fair, not to take things serious and
know what the BS is! And understand life has the greatest moments of your life!
"I don't care if this sounds lame, but that was one of the greatest moments of my life!"

Below are statements from C.C. Banana and Ted Poley himself, explaining the
unlikely series of events that led to the inclusion of a Ted Poley tribute song on a
VINNIE VINCENT tribute album.
Ted Poley: "In 1992, Danger Danger was opening for KISS on the UK leg of the
Revenge Tour. One night after our set I was backstage walking down the corridor
toward our dressing room, when suddenly PAUL STANLEY entered from the other end!
Paul has always been one of my heroes and it was a tremendous honor to be out on tour
with him and KISS. When I saw him approaching, I really wanted to say hello and
introduce myself... but I got starstruck and lost my nerve! So I ended up just looking down
at my shoes and walking past without saying anything. But when I got to the other end of the
hallway, I heard Paul belting out my name at the top of his lungs... to the tune of their
new single "Unholy!" The words and melody just fit perfectly. "Ted Poh-laaaaayyyyy!"
I don't care if this sounds lame, but that was one of the greatest moments of my life!"
C.C. Banana: "Immediately after I heard Ted's story, I knew I had to write the song parody!
Even though he is known for being a fairly levelheaded guy, I thought it would be
funny to paint a picture of a Ted Poley whose rock star ego is completely out of control.
A man whose sense of self-importance became overinflated at the peak of his fame
and kept right on growing. In other words, what if Ted Poley were more like
GENE SIMMONS, the man who sang "Unholy" in the first place?
That, my friends, is the circle of life."
