MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil recently spoke to UGO.com about the group's upcoming tour and his recent wedding, among other topics. Several excerpts from the interview follow:
UGO: Why no opening act for this tour?
Vince Neil: "We want to play the whole time. We're going to play all the hits and a lot of older stuff that we've either never played before in concert, or rarely played.
UGO: What's making you want to break out those older songs?
Vince Neil: "It's because they are songs that fans want to hear. You can't not play the hits, so usually you can't do both. We need the extra time, and that's why there is no opening act.
UGO: What are some of the older songs you'll be busting out?
Vince Neil: "'Too Fast for Love' and a lot of the songs off 'Theatre of Pain', like 'Louder than Hell'."
UGO: Apparently, NBC has banned you from ever being on their network again because you dropped the F-bomb on the live New Year's Eve "Tonight Show with Jay Leno". Do you even care?
Vince Neil: "No, I don't care, because there is always ABC, FOX and CBS. After the show, Jay gave us all hugs and thanked us. We didn't even realize what happened until a couple of days afterwards, when we heard about it in the news."
UGO: What made you want to have MC Hammer officiate your wedding?
Vince Neil: "Hammer is a buddy of mine. He was invited to the wedding, and I just thought it would be cool. There was an episode of 'The Surreal Life' where he went up and preached, and he's just really good at it. He's a good soul."
