Motley Crue front man Vince Neil is one outspoken rocker, but when it comes to the concert stage, the singer says he'll take a back seat and let the music do the talking -- even if it's in a casino instead of a huge arena.
The tragedy that unfolded last Friday (Dec. 14) in Newtown, Conn. has provoked a wide variety of responses, as well as a renewed national debate over gun control laws and mental health policy -- and, as it turns out, Motley Crue singer Vince Neil has his own viewpoint to add to the discussion, whether his fans agree or not.
It can't be easy remembering the words to Motley Crue's greatest hits while holding a microphone and scanning one's environment for inappropriate horseplay, but Vince Neil is a seasoned professional, and he can multitask. Just ask the fan who nearly got clocked at his solo show last Saturday (Dec. 1).
John Corabi came very close to killing himself when he lost his job as Motley Crue's lead singer in 1997. At a recent acoustic concert in London, he gave the details of the firing, and the aftermath. The video is embedded below.
Bassist, author and radio host Nikki Sixx will be able to add "actor" to his resume. The Motley Crue member will appear in 'Shoot'er,' a film by P.R. Brown, who has directed several Crue videos. You can watch the trailer below.
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx spent a year tirelessly logging the highs and lows of life as a drug-addled rockstar in his 2007 biography 'The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.' Now the bassist says that year will be recreated on Broadway.
Motley Crue's Vince Neil had a blast with the after-party bashes on the band's latest tour, and during a New Jersey stop over the weekend the rocker made a memorable impression by playing 'Girls Girls Girls with teen upstarts Going Dark, who were the after-party entertainment.
It's one of the defining hits of the power ballad era and a standout in the Motley Crue catalog, but according to Nikki Sixx, the band had to fight just to release 'Home Sweet Home' on an album -- and if it hadn't been for MTV, it might never have become the lighter-waving favorite we all remember today.
With Motley Crue's summer-long tour with fellow rock titans Kiss wrapping up, we caught up with the band's bassist, songwriter, author, fashion designer, photographer, radio host and all-around renaissance man, Nikki Sixx.
