VINCE NEIL Says 'There Are No Personal Problems' In MÖTLEY CRÜE

MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil recently spoke to The Hartford Courant about the group's "Red, White, and Crüe 2005...Better Live Than Dead" reunion tour and their future plans. Several excerpts from the interview follow:

On Tommy Lee's recent statement to the Asociated Press that "This tour could last a week. It could last a year. I just don't know":

"I never heard of anything like that. It took us months to get this tour to where we wanted it. We're talking a huge, huge production here. This isn't something we just put together in, like, a couple days. So I think the press actually says things that really aren't necessarily true. I never heard that in my life."

On how the band is overcoming personal problems between bandmembers that derailed the last original CRÜE tour:

"For one thing, there are no personal problems. Everybody is getting along great; we're having a great time. If we were having problems, we probably wouldn't have done this whole thing in the first place. We've been rehearsing, having a great time, and it's all good."

On the outside perception that MÖTLEY CRÜE are eager to show fans that the band can handle this tour:

"We don't have to prove anything to anybody. We are MÖTLEY CRÜE. We're selling out every arena, and people are wanting to come out and see us. So it's all good."

On the group's live show:

"It's the biggest thing we've ever done. Tommy's drum thing is the craziest thing he's ever done. We've decided to not have an opening act, so we go on right at [7:30], and we play the whole time, so we can play the more obscure songs also, you know, stuff from the first couple records. There's a lot of visual stuff, a lot of stuff going on, a lot of characters. Obviously the pyro, stuff that's never been done on tour before."

On the possibility of a new MÖTLEY CRÜE studio album:

"We're really focused on this tour. This tour could last up to three years, so to think about an album right now is pretty futile. We'll take it as it goes. If it gets toward the end of the tour, and everybody's like, 'Yeah, let's do another record or take a year off and put another record out,' that'll be great. But it's not really being talked about right now."
