You wanted the best, you got the best - the shortest band in the world... MINI-KISS!




It's a sad case of life imitating art for a member of MINI-KISS, the tribute band formed by little people in the US three years ago.


Kenny HooHaa, 34, played the role of "Ace Nearly" in the self-proclaimed shortest band in the world and became so upset at the apparent feud between the current members of his favourite band and former guitarist Ace Frehley that he put his spaceman suit in storage and unleashed the ankh, rechristening himself "Minnie Vincent" and taking on the guise of forever-troubled former KISS axeman, Vinnie Vincent.


It was a decision that would come back to haunt him.


Since slapping on the ankh panstick Minnie Vincent has been tormented by issues in his personal life that echo those of Vinnie himself. Plans to form a solo project, Minnie Vincent Limited Skirmish, were curtailed when prospective band members dubbed him a mentalist, and things have gone from bad to worse since.


HooHaa, who actually spent some time in the UK working at Babbacombe Model Village as a stunt cock, was charged with spousal abuse and, in a bizarre coincidence with the artist formerly known as Vincent Cusano, when police arrested him at his home they found, in the modified kitchen, a pack of dead dogs secreted in numerous tuppaware containers. But, get this, the dogs were all miniatures - Japanese Chin, Pekingese, Pomeranian, Shih Tzu, Toy Fox Terrier, and Chihuahua.




In an exclusive interview with Steve Bebe of the once-good Kerrang! magazine due to be published next week, Kenny/Minnie opens up and reveals that his Mini-Kiss band mates are already looking for a Mark St. John to replace him in the tribute band and feels that he might have to return to British shores as "those fucking idiot Brits love a tribute band."


"I've read that some of the fucktards even claim that the tribute bands are better than the original bands that they are copying," he added. "These are my kind of cloth-eared clowns! This boy is gonna rock his way back to the United Kingdom! How tall is Matt Blakout?"


More on this next week.
