Legendary rock band KISS is supporting Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital by donating an incredible, money-can’t-buy prize to help raise valuable funds for the hospital’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.

The band has donated a phenomenal prize of three of their personal guitars signed by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and Tommy Thayer respectively, plus a signed personal snare drum with signed drum sticks from Eric Singer. The guitar donated by Paul Stanley is his signature Ibanez PS120 guitar which he was intending to play at their Manchester Arena gig on Tuesday 30th May.

After many years out of the limelight Vinnie Vincent returned to greet fans at yesterday's Atlanta KISS Expo as well as spending time with Eddie Trunk on his radio show. Thankfully several fans have recorded the interview which can be seen below thanks to Mike Brunn. Great to see Vinnie in public again, let's hope it's not a one-off.
