I have been saving up a good rant for Mr. Vince Neil since his performance at M3 in Baltimore last June. I decided to let it go unless he does something truly stupid again. I try to give Vince Neil the benefit of the doubt. I do this as Motley Crue has long been one of my favorite bands. Unlucky for me, Vince Neil is an easy target, and his random stupidity seems to be happening much more frequently as of late. I find it impossible not to talk about Vince, or his recent behavior. After my friend Kenny Ozz posted the video below on facebook, I felt inspired to post my previously averted rant.
Last June, I looked forward to seeing Vince Neil’s solo band at M3. The whole day at M3 was super hot but overall it was a great time. All of the band’s were starting on time, which allowed fans to take in bands at both stages. Then Vince Neil’s set started late and screwed up the rest of the schedule at M3. Vince Neil was so BAD at M3 that many people migrated over to the second stage to watch Nelson perform. To me, it honestly sounded like the band didn’t rehearse before their performance. Once again, Vince forgot half his lyrics, YES the same Motley Crue lyrics that he jibber jabbers through at most of the Motley Crue shows.
It wasn’t much longer after M3, that Vince Neil got busted for a DUI.
Learning this news truly pissed me off. You would think Mr. Neil would have learned something after he killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle in a drunken driving accident in 1984. I guess the memory of this accident is in the same place in his brain as Motley Crue’s lyrics. December 8th was the anniversary of Razzle’s death, and clearly Vince has no remorse over this accident.
After a little bit of digging, I discovered that he has also been nailed for a DUI in 2007. You can view the mug shots courtesy of The Smoking Gun below.
If you look at the picture of Vince I took at M3 (below), you will notice that he is wearing the same necklace in his 2010 mugshot.
In the video below, he is clearly inebriated and is showing getting behind the wheel of a car.
Clearly, Vince Neil has a problem with alcoholism, and has no common sense to not get in a car and drive when drinks. If you live in Las Vegas, beware, the next person Vince kills could be you! I am really disgusted with Vince Neil. He can’t sing his songs live, and clearly has no conscience when it comes to drinking and driving. In 2010, He ice skates about as good as he sings. He is making a mockery out of Motley Crue, with all of his shoddy performances. Motley Crue could be a mega band, but with Vince Neil as a singer, they never will be. I believe everyone deserves a second chance, but Vince has had countless chances to get his shit together.
The average person knows better than to not drink and drive. Vince Neil has previously been charged we vehicular manslaughter, and still continues to drink and drive. Why does the judicial system keep letting Vince Neil get off free? How many more people does he have to hurt or kill, before they will take note of his indiscretions?
Once upon a time, Vince Neil even did a Service Announcement for Drinking and Driving (See below). He must have forgotten about this too.
It is clearly time for Vince Neil to lose his license and hire a driver. If he can’t get his act together, it may be time to for Motley Crue to hunt down a new singer. I hear John Corabi is available.
