Vince Neil, former frontman of Mötley Crüe.
International superstar, accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist, Vince Neil came to exemplify all things rock and roll: the sound, the success, the look and the outrageous lifestyle.
Neil's unmistakable voice leads some of the greatest rock songs of this generation including "Shout at the Devil," "Home Sweet Home," "Girls, Girls, Girls," "Dr. Feelgood," "Kickstart My Heart," "Same Ol Situation," and the recent "Saints of Los Angeles," which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009 for Best Hard Rock Performance. With 15 years between his last solo album, Neil released "Tattoos & Tequila", followed by his tell-all book of the same name.
When not performing, Neil continues to expand and oversee his latest entrepreneurial efforts which include Feelgoods Rock Bar and Grill in West Palm Beach and Las Vegas; Vince Neil Ink, a Las Vegas based tattoo parlour and apparel shop; Tres Rios tequila, an authentic Mexican tequila; the Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation (www.skylarneil.org), a tribute to Vince's daughter whom he lost to cancer in 1995 which has raised over $2 million to help combat childhood cancer; and his latest venture, Vince Neil Aviation, a luxury air charter service providing the rock n' roll commute on either his Lear 35 or Hawker 700 jets.
Raised on the tough streets of Compton, California, Neil fell in love with music as a child, developing a broad vocabulary that ranged from classic Motown to hard rock. As a teenager, he began performing with local bands and soon discovered a passion for the stage and a natural talent as a singer and performer. He fronted the popular band Rock Candy before reuniting with high school buddy Tommy Lee in 1981, sealing rock and roll history with the formation of Mötley Crüe.
In addition to selling 80 million records around the world as the frontman for Mötley Crüe, Neil also began his career as a solo artist in 1993. His Top 200 Billboard albums, "Exposed" (which reached number 13 on The Billboard 200 albums chart) and "Carved In Stone" have spurred the hits "You're Invited (But Your Friend Can't Come)", "Can't Have Your Cake" and "Sister of Pain".
