Motley Crue’s Vince Neil: ‘My Voice After All These Years Is Probably the Best It’s Ever Been’

Mary Ouellette, SheWillShootYou.com In a comment that just begs for discussion, Motley Crue singer Vince Neil states in a recent interview that his voice is “probably” better than it’s ever been in his career. At age 51, it’s not easy for anyone to keep their voice sounding crisp, or to keep a positive relationship with your bandmates after over 30 years (especially if your band happens to be Motley Crue) but Neil claims that both are still great. First, Neil spoke to ConnectSavannah.com about his broken foot and how it affects his stage performances. “It’s still broke!,” Neil exclaims. “It broke in two spots, but it broke to where you can’t cast it, so I have to wear a boot. But the boot that the doctors gave me keeps it pretty steady, so onstage I can get around. But I’m mostly hopping — well, not hopping, but it’s a big boot so it’s a little awkward. But I didn’t have to cancel any shows or anything, so it’s all good. It’s going to take three to six months to heal, they said.” Speaking on his current relationship with his Motley Crue bandmates, which has been famously complicated over the years, Neil says, “Our relationship’s great. No, we have a great time. On the road, they have the families out, so it’s a different thing. We travel separately because Tommy [Lee] will have his kids out, and Nikki [Sixx] will have his kids, and stuff like that.” Finally, Vince Neil speaks about the current quality of his singing voice. “My voice after all these years is probably the best it’s ever been. And I find that if I take a bunch of time off, it’s harder to kind of get that muscle going again. It’s like after you have a day off, the next day it’s a little tougher to sing some notes than if you had three shows in a row and it’s the third day. It’s just like working out — the more you use it, the stronger it gets.” We’ve got a question for anyone who has recently seen Crue live; does Vince Neil’s voice sound better than ever?
