Vince Neil was spotted outside BOA last night in Los Angeles. The Motley Crue singer talked about how he’d be competing on ABC’s ‘Ice Skating with the Stars’ on Thanksgiving before entering the restaurant with a female companion. “It’s fun, it’s something I’ve really never done before and getting out of your comfort zone and doing something crazy,” Vince said about ice skating. The rocker was completely dumbfounded when asked about Justin Bieber, telling the paparazzi he had no idea what the guy was talking about. Watch Hollywood.tv footage via YouTube below.
NME talked to Vince Neil about his new solo album ‘Tattoos & Tequila’, why it’s taken him 15 years, what’s up with Motley Crue, and covering Elton John. “Well I didn’t have the time,” Neil said about the 15-year gap between solo albums. “I’ve been so busy touring with Motley Crue and putting together other businesses and things like that I just really hadn’t had the time to do it. But I kind of took this year, ’10, put out a book and put out some music, and have some fun, but of course Motley threw a little wrench into it and said hey, you gotta go to Europe and you gotta do Ozzfest, but it all worked out.” Watch the interview via YouTube below.
Vince Neil recently sat down in the Gibson showroom in Toronto while on tour in support of his just-released solo album, ‘Tattoos & Tequila’. The Motley Crue frontman talked about which guitars were used on the new album, discussed Crue’s upcoming appearances on this summer’s Ozzfest and his tequila business. He also made an appeal for the return of a stolen Corvette Les Paul that also happens to be his favorite guitar of all time. “Tequila to me means bikinis, beach, sand, and summertime,” the Tres Rios Tequila owner explained. “It’s a fun liquor though.” Watch the interview via YouTube below.
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil was eyed cleaning his Ferrari with “his trusty dusting wand” at the driveway of the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, according to a New York Post spy. “He spent several minutes scurrying around the car, hair flying, making sure there was not a speck of dust on the paint. Call me crazy, but I would have taken care of that before I left home this morning, perhaps paid a valet to take care of it.”
Las Vegas Weekly spoke to Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil last month about the one-year anniversary of Vince Neil Ink, his tattoo shop on the Las Vegas Strip.

Motley Crue singer Vince Neil spoke with GateHouse News Service about his newly launched line of tequila called Tres Rios. “It’s just good stuff … it’s made down outside of Guadalajara [Mexico],” he said.
