MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil has once shot down rumors that the group doesn’t get along behind the scenes, explaining that he and his bandmates have remained friends for more than three decades."We've always been buddies," he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "Even when we fought, we were still brothers, you know. You're always going to fight with your brothers, and we'd always have these little arguments. The press would always make more of our arguments than anything, because it was a good read. Today, we have our little fights, now and then, but now, it's like 10 minutes later, we're like, 'Ah, yeah, you're right,' you know, and it's basically just being in business with somebody and being close with somebody." Some have said that the members of MÖTLEY CRÜE do not get along offstage, citing the fact that they tour in separate buses as an example. "You've got to remember, now everybody has families, too," Vince said. "Nikki [Sixx, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist] travels with his... Nikki's got six kids, you know. He travels with his kids and his dog. Tommy's [Lee, MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer] got his kids out with him once in a while. It's a different way of traveling now." MÖTLEY CRÜE's "The Final Tour" kicked off last year and will end New Year's Eve at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Neil, however, he doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon. "I'm excited about the future," Vince told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I've had a solo band for the last 15 or so years, maybe longer than that. And when MÖTLEY doesn't tour, I'm always on tour with my solo band. Even after New Year's Eve, MÖTLEY's last show, I start up again January 10; so I won't have much of a break. "The thing is, though, it's exciting because, you know, MÖTLEY CRÜE takes up 99 percent of your time. And now you get MÖTLEY out of the picture, and now you can really focus on solo career and other businesses and anything you want to do. So it's kind of an exciting time, thinking about what I could do with all this time I have now. It's going to be sad that we're no longer playing together, but you know, it's progress, I guess."
