Vince Neil on Motley Crue Retirement: 'We Wont Fake It Like Kiss'
Vince Neil has once again reiterated that Motley Crue are planning to call time on their career at some point in the next few years. As Hennemusic reports, the Crue vocalist made the following statement to the Oakland Press: "It's definitely for real. We want to go out on top. We don't want to be one of those bands that people are like, 'Oh, they're playing a ... little club now. We still sell out arenas and do stadium shows and stuff like that, and that's how we want to be remembered." Neil also noted that the band wont endlessly extend their farewell tour like Kiss did in the late 1990s. Its just time," he continued. "Mick [Mars]'s health is not that good, and touring is tough on him. I'm sure in five, 10 years' time we'll probably do something together again, but it's not gonna be like a Kiss farewell to the farewell to the farewell tour. We're not gonna be like that." In spite of Motley Crue's imminent end, Neil intends to keep working, noting that he will be touring an upcoming solo album as soon as the band is over. "I'm planning to release something maybe before the end of the Motley run," he says. "That way it would come out right toward the end of that, and I can just go straight from Motley and continue touring on that [solo album]. That's the idea now, at least. It's a ways away, still."
