Vinnie Vincent songs in Happy Days In 1980, Vincent moved to Los Angeles,
California where he became a (Paramount) staff songwriter for
the television series " Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi".
Many of the series songs were written on Vincent's acoustic
guitar while sitting at the Cunninghams' kitchen table on the
Happy Days set, during off-time from the show's rehearsal
During the last two seasons of the show, he wrote every song
Joanie and Chachi sang together. Below : Happy Days' Scott Baio and Erin

Vinnie Vincent - "All Systems Go" demo
01 is an unreleased ballad with an acoustic guitar intro before
going electric, featuring scat vocals revolving primarily around
the "I Wanna Love You" lyric, which seems to
essentially be the only lyric figured out for the song.

Vinnie Vincent - demo
This demo sounds near the same as the
versions on "Vinnie Vincent with Jeff Scott Soto -
Publishing Tape", but on this demo Vinnie Vincent did the
lead vocals by himself.
01 Young Blood, Young Fire
(with WARRIOR) "Thrill Of A Chase" was first roughly
demoed by Steven Rosen and Jimmy Waldo.
When Vinnie Vincent heard that demo, he loved the song so much
that he was keen to do his own version of it. That's why
WARRIOR (including Vinnie Vincent) went into to studio in
1988 (6 years after the band split up) to record the song.
A different version (without Vinnie Vincent's vocals and
guitars) appeared on Jimmy Waldo & Steven Rosen's "Voices
Of The Past" (2018). (Copyright registered in April 1988)
