VINCE NEIL To Lead The 'Chicken Dance' At Cincinnati's OKTOBERFEST

The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil will "lead the Chicken Dance" at this year's Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, described as "the nation's largest and most authentic Oktoberfest." Neil, who will be seen in MTV's "The Remaking of Vince Neil", a reality show documenting his comeback attempts with the help of makeover specialists, will do the Chicken Dance honors at 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 19.

According to a posting at the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati web site, the "Chicken Dance" is a dance song which "was composed by Werner Thomas in the 1970s in Davos, Switzerland, and was originally entitled 'Der Ententanz', which means 'The Duck Dance', but became known as the 'Vogeltanz', 'Chicken Dance', and also as 'Dance Little Bird'. There were many versions of this that became hit songs, but the song and dance have had the greatest longevity in the U.S., where it has become a popular German heritage song." Listen to the "Chicken Dance" song at this location (midi file).
