Former MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil sat down exclusively with MuchMoreMusic's Bill Welychka in Buffalo, NY last week and cleared up recent rumors of a possible reunion/farewell tour.
"Two weeks ago in L.A., Tommy (Lee), Nikki (Sixx), myself and Mick (Mars) by phone sat in a room together with all the attorneys to see if we even wanted to do this," said Neil. "The fans are asking for it and I think it's time. It's a good thing and a good time to put a 'period' on the MÖTLEY CRÜE story. After, we'll call it quits and go back to doing what we've been doing for the past few years. It'll be closure for me — and this won't go on to be seven or eight 'farewell tours' like KISS or CHER... Everyone is on board and 95% committed. It's definitely time."
With sales upwards of the 40 million mark, the band battled well-documented years of drug abuse and mounting legal troubles. Neil contends, however, that this is a wiser and healthier MÖTLEY CRÜE.
The last time the four original members toured together was 1999, before personality differences forced the band off the road. MÖTLEY CRÜE toured again in 2000 without Tommy Lee. The upcoming tour is slated to last close to two years, and will most likely commence in February 2005.
