Exciter

Paul Stanley, Vinnie Vincent

Rick Derringer plays the guitar solo on this track. According to Vinnie, "I don't think Gene and Paul liked what I played on the song, and I did... I loved it. I thought that it was one of my best pieces and for some reason that angered me quite a bit. Because I wasn't told about it until after it was done, but that is true. I liked what I played better, than what ended up on that song. I think Rick's a great player by the way" (Strike #38). This song was performed live during the "Lick It Up" tour giving Vinnie the opportunity to play the solo his way. Early versions of this song, accurately titled "You," circulate with the arrangement being worked on.

A 3:44 instrumental rehearsal circulates which gives a taste of what the song would have been like with Vinnie's original solo idea left intact with its diving notes and crunchiness. Then again, one may also wonder what all the fuss was comparing Vinnie's version with the solo Rick recorded which was more traditional.
