    Tim Kelly

    I believe he died a while back.

    (my first concert ever was Kiss in '88..Slaughter opened up for them...He was a pretty good player).

    Tim Kelly from the Levittown, PA area. I used to play in a band w/ another guitar player who at one time played with Tim in a Judas Priest cover band w/ Tim's brother on vocals. Yes, he passed away a few years ago.

    He was endorsed by Robin. Are Robins still made in Texas? Anyone know?

    Wasnt that 1990 during the Hot in the Shade Tour?

    Slaughter and Little Caesar opened up.... KISS had the big talking Sphinx on stage?

    That was my 1st show too... 88 would have been the Crazy Nights tour...

    Wiki lists Jeff Bland as the current guitarist (since '98).

    Why be worried if people will laugh?
    Slaughter was a pretty popular band in 90-91. Their debut record was a success and had some good songs. Saw them open for Kiss and Winger. They put on a good show.

    Congrats on the gig. Ask him when Scrap Metal is getting back together!! The Gunner twins, Mark S, The singer from mr.Big, and the drummer from night ranger. One of the tightest bands I've seen.

    I grew up a huge KISS fan so I followed all the offshoots of the band even Vinnie Vincent. I saw an interview with Vinnie that Mark Slaughter was his first choice for lead singer instead of (his name is slipping me) the guy on the first album. However when Mark sent in his tape or whatever, he failed to put a name or any contact info. He found him and Mark is on the second album. The first guy might might have been Fleischman?

    KISS and Vinnie sue each other about once a month and his whole band (Bearing his name) leave him on the road and form Slaughter. I'm guessing Vinnie might be hard to deal with.

    I met Tim Kelly and most of Slaughter after a gig at the London Marquee club, after the first album was released. I was maybe 14-15 years old. Told him I thought he was a really good player, and he seemed genuinely thankful. Shame he died so young. Car accident, I think.
