I have unfortunatly not had the privledge of having much discussion with Vinny during my time here at the Café.

However, I have seen many of his posts, and have gained a respect for him as a magician. Vinny has an intimate knowledge of the craft, and seems to always be willing to help out those in a jam. He is one of the true gentlemen in magic.

Vinnie has sent me his videos on the top change squeeze palm etc and I am always blown away by his skill AND generosity. As this thread proves the Godfather has made quite an impact in the Café. Cheers Vinnie!

There is a reason why Vinny is known as "The Godfather". The guy's work is absolutely amazing. He's one of the very best magicians out there that inspired me. Vinny, your magic is amazing. I admire and truly respect you and your work. I use a lot of your stuff. Glenn is right. We're very lucky to have the opportunity to meet and talk to other magicians such as yourself Vinny. Your work will be used and remembered forever.
With respect,

Michael

Vinny has magic most of us just dream about - the ability to make each and every person he deals with feel unique and part of his "famiglia." Vinny tells me how much he loves magic - I think he loves people more and that's what our entertainment industry is really about. Thank you, Vinny, for everything. As always, my best. - Scott

Scott,

You are dead on. Vinny loves people as much as he loves magic. Here's a funny story. We're at Jeff McBride's grand opening of his magic school (pre-party for the LVMI that year). We see this amazing coin magician performing some astounding coin magic. We ask the magicians around us "Who is that??" Nobody recognized him. The coin magician did maybe 3-4 minutes worth of material without speaking a word. Afterwards, Vinny walks up to him and bluntly asks "Are you a deaf and mute?" Smile Turns out the magician was Mickey Silver, and that was the beginning of their friendship. I still bust a gut laughing when I remember Vinny asking him the question in the way only the godfather can.

I know Vinny only from reading his postings, but it's clear to me that he's a gem. If only there were more men with heart like him.

Vinny's taken time out to help me a couple of times now. That's what most impresses me about him; the time he takes to help beginners - many magicians with his abilities wouldn't give us the time of day.

As to why he's the Godfather? As far as I'm concerned it is that he's a Father-figure to so many students of magic.

I can't add anything to what has already been posted here. He is a people person and it shows with his generosity towards other aspiring magicians.

I hope to someday meet him in person.

thanks Vinny

Vinny is truly a class act, an amazing individual. His insights are second to none. He offered his help when I needed it. I didn't take him up on the offer (I still might Smile ) but greatly appreciated it.

Thanks Vinny!
