MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil spoke to Telegram.com about the band’s decision to call it quits after one last show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles following an eighteen-month tour that saw the band performing to packed houses all over the world.
“I think I was the only one in the band who got emotional. It all kind of came together that night. ‘This is it,'” Vince said about the final performance, which took place on December 31.
“There were a lot of emotions that came into my head,” he added. “It really was surreal — know what I mean?”
Neil also talked about his “The Legacy Continues Tour” where he performs classic MÖTLEY CRÜE hits, as well as select cuts from his three solo albums, backed by a band that includes SLAUGHTER’s Jeff Blando on guitar and Dana Strum on bass, with Zoltan Chaney on drums.
“It never really stopped for me,” Neil said. “I am last man standing.” In fact, “I live for it. I’m a road singer. My band guys say, ‘You sound better Day 3 than Day 1.’ When I’m performing, I’m happy.”
