Vince Neil

Biography

Since hooking up with seminal Glam Metal band Motley Crue in the early 1980s, singer Vince Neil has caught almost as much press for his misfortunes as his chart topping hits. While the Crue were climbing up the MTV ladder in the mid-1980s with "Smokin' in the Boys Room" and "Home Sweet Home," the middle of the Me Decade brought Neil some time behind bars. The rowdy performer was convicted in 1984 for driving under the influence and killing his friend, Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley of Hanoi Rocks. He only served 20 days in jail (plus community service and a hefty fine), but he wasn't about to get off easy. Six years later the band gave him the boot, and Neil hasn't bounced back since. He performed the song "You're Invited But Your Friend Can't Come" for the Encino Man soundtrack in 1992, and released his solo albums "X-Posed" in 1993 and "Carved in Stone" in 1995. Neither album came close to touching the Crue's success. Neil returned to the Crue fold in 1997. More recently, Neil has been in the press for his race to the bottom of the sleaze barrel. After Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson "accidentally" had a tape of them having sex released to the public, Neil was quick to pawn his own brand of washed up celebrity porn: a video of himself and porn star Janine.
