James William Hince (born 19 December 1968) is an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, best known as the guitarist for the indie rock duo The Kills. He started his musical career in bands called Fiji, Scarfo, and Blyth Power. He co-founded The Kills with American singer Alison Mosshart in 2000. In The Kills, Hince is known as "Hotel" and Mosshart is known as "VV".
In the early 2010s, Hince lost the use of one finger on his left hand following an accident of his hand being shut in a car door. He had to relearn how to play the guitar without it. In 2018, he was featured on Azealia Banks' song "Lorelei" from her second studio album, Fantasea II: The Second Wave.
Hince was married to model Kate Moss. In 2008, The Sun reported that Hince and Moss became engaged during a trip to Amsterdam. Hince proposed to her in bed with a vintage 1920s ring worth more than £10,000. They wed on 1 July 2011 at St Peter's Church, Southrop in Gloucestershire, and separated in July 2015. They divorced in 2016.
