Vince Neil – Exposed (Release Year – 1993)
On this disc, he had a helping hand by guitarist Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Robbie Crane (RATT, Arcade) bass, Dave Marshall (Fiona), guitar and Vik Foxx (Enuff Z’nuff) on drums.
Exposed is a very solid effort by Vince Neil and company. I have read where many people have thought that Exposed is the disc that Motley Crue should have released after Dr. Feelgood. I don’t know if I agree with that opinion or not, but the music on Exposed will certainly appeal to some Crue fans out there.
My favorite tracks from this release are Sister of Pain, You’re Invited, Forever, and You’re Invited.
Steve Stevens is an incredible guitarist, and lets loose somewhat on the tracks The Edge and Fine, Fine Wine.
There is only one song on this disc that I didn’t care for, and this is Living in Luxury, everything else is pretty good, and very similar to Motley Crue musically.
Sister of Pain
The song You’re Invited (But Your Friend Can’t Come) was originally recorded for the Encino Man Soundtrack. The version on Exposed was re-recorded with Steve Stevens on guitar and is a little heavier than the one in the video.
You’re Invited (But Your Friend Can’t Come)
Can’t Change Me
Can’t Have Your Cake
There are rumors swirling around that Nikki Sixx may perform live with Vince at the Rocklahoma Music Festival. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen. Vince is currently on the road with Dana Strum and Jeff Blando from Slaughter, and drummer Will Hunt. You are guaranteed to hear some songs off of Exposed as well as his sophomore release Carved In Stone when he performs live. He will be in Cincinnati tonight, and I will be there. I will bring you a full report on the live show tomorrow.
If you don’t own Exposed, pick it up. You can get this disc for next to nothing and it is worth picking up.
