Vinnie Roxx, formally known as Linus Roxx. Real Name? Check with local Law Enforcement. When attended his first concert at the age of 5, It was "The Hottest Band in the World, Kiss"!!!!! If memory serves him right, the year was 1976 at Cobo Arena. 7th row back from the stage right in front of the All Mighty, God of Thunder, Gene Simmons, and sitting on top of his Mother's boyfriend's shoulders. Just when you could imagine as a kid that being the coolest thing ever, in his entire 5-year-old life, Gene did his signature fist in the air, Linus did it back, and Gene saw it, pointed at him and did it again. That was the moment he knew exactly what and where he needed to be. On stage giving the fist. Then Vinnie went on to spending the next couple years with the white plastic "Kiss" guitar, running through the house, jumping off every piece of furniture in the apartment, singing "Black Diamond" and "Strutter", blowing imaginary fire from eating smarties aka, "the fire and blood pills". Vinnie first started singing around the age of 7, on his mothers P.A., in the basement to Pat Benetar's "Heartbreaker", on a record player. Neighbors actually liked it. At around 10 he was introduced to the sounds of AC/DC with the death of Bon Scott. When the early teen age years came, he was introduced to a new album called "Shout At The Devil" on cassette and that is when the party started, followed up by a drivers license and singing every song, in the car to GnR "Appetite For Destruction" to hone in on vocal therapy, Vinnie landed his first band gig, taking over vocals with a band called Guilty Party. He did a couple of shows at Studio Lounge before the band dispersed. He then had a few good runs with the Likes of Stigmata, Lyck Stycky, Shagg Nasty, and Hollywood n Vine. Now heading up the ultimate Motley Crue Tribute he is living out those 80’s sounds in style! For all you ladies out there… Vinnie stated that he likes long quiet walks on the beach.
