VINCE NEIL Guitarist Says VINCE's Heavy Drinking Is Not An Issue

In an exclusive interview with, guitarist Jason Hook of the VINCE NEIL band insisted that bandmate Vince Neil's (MÖTLEY CRÜE) heavy drinking did not affect the group's recent tour. "I don’t have a problem with Vince on a personal level," Jason said. "Yes, he can drink his ass off, and the rest of the band doesn't really drink that much, so I think he's more compelled to care about what we're doing, because the rest of us are sort of 'on target.' I haven't had a problem with the guy — he's always been really nice and friendly to me. I think he's a really sweet man, actually.

"The problem is, with some of these rock stars that I've had the opportunity to work with — they have tremendous power. And when things upset them, they tend to get a little exaggerated with their temper. Add alcohol to that and you'll get these sort of flare-ups — the drinking makes him normal for where he's been. I have certainly worked with some other people that have been a LOT worse. Vince is primarily a nice, generous, and easy-going guy." Read the entire interview here.
