Watch: Vince Neil Is Back to Butchering Mötley Crüe Songs Live


There’s never any shortage of nonsense going on in the Mötley Crüe camp, whether it’s Tommy Lee breaking his ribs and fucking up live, Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx feuding with Hanoi Rocks or Mick Mars being replaced by Rob fucking Zombie’s guitarist. The greatest embarrassment to come from the Crüe since Saints of Los Angeles, though, is by far Neil’s live performances and the video footage from his most recent show at Spotlight Showroom in Coachella, California on Saturday night (January 28) show exactly why.

At its best, Neil kind of just talk-sings and uses crowd participation to make it through “Wild Side,” which doesn’t exactly sound like the high-energy live staple it is. At its worst, it’s… kind of what you’ve come to expect from the once-legendary singer.

On the bright side of things, Neil seems to be getting around the stage pretty well which is great because Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard are about to embark on a stadium co-headliner, the sequel to last year’s license to print money.
