VINCE NEIL Is 'Kicking Around Some Song Ideas' For Possible New Solo Album

In a recent interview with NorthJersey.com, MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil said that there is a future possibility of a follow-up to 2010's "Tattoos & Tequila", his last solo album.

"Right now the focus is on touring," he said. "The demand has been high since MÖTLEY CRÜE's retirement.

"We are kicking around some song ideas and hope we can hit the studio during the off season," Neil added. "Our calendar is pretty booked right now for the next year, at least, so there's nothing for certain at this point.'

Neil's first solo album, "Exposed", came out in 1993, reaching No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart. His follow-up effort, "Carved In Stone", arrived two years later. Neil's third and latest solo album, "Tattoos & Tequila", was released in 2010 and included two originals along with covers of classics songs from AEROSMITH, SCORPIONS and SWEET.

Neil's backing group continues to include Dana Strum and Jeff Blando from SLAUGHTER and drummer Zoltan Chaney.

Vince told NorthJersey.com that has no qualms about being the only member of MÖTLEY CRÜE still performing the band's songs live.

"People would be [peeved] if I didn't play the hits, and I love performing them and connecting with the audience," Neil said. "Those songs are my legacy as well as MÖTLEY CRÜE's.

"They are great songs that bring back a lot of great memories to a lot of people who grew up when we were big," he continued. "It's always a thrill to see the sparkle in someone's eyes knowing that the song you made takes them back to a special time in their life."

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx recently said that he was happy the group disbanded because he no longer has to deal with the "drama" of being in a group with three other guys with completely "different ideas."

In 2015, MÖTLEY CRÜE completed "The Final Tour", closing the book on the band's iconic career after performing a total of 164 shows in 72 markets, grossing over $100 million.

To cement the sense of finality, the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE in 2014 publicly signed a "cessation of touring" contract that prevents any of them from performing under the CRÜE name in the future.
