To anti-gay conspirators, busted officials and legislators gone wild, we say: Occupy This! 

Dog day afternoon. Trashing hotel rooms and debaucherous backstage parties are self-destructive behaviors that go hand-in-hand with rock ’n’ roll excess. But when news broke this summer that former KISS guitarist and Smyrna resident Vinnie Vincent, aka Vincent Cusano, allegedly beat his wife, dragged her through broken glass and, oh yeah, stored the carcasses of multiple dead dogs in plastic containers, justifications for the rocker’s bizarre behavior were as hard to find as a glowing review for Lick It Up. According to media reports, the Ankh Warrior claimed that the dogs were murdered by more aggressive canines, and he couldn’t bear to dispose of them in a socially accepted fashion. Cusano opted instead to seal their bodies in plastic and entomb them in unburied doggy caskets on his property — a step backward for pet care, maybe, but a bitchin’ idea for a concept album!
