Dario Bogni informs us that Vince Neil is an American singer and songwriter, known mainly for being the vocalist of the glam metal band Mötley Crüe, and is ranked 33rd in the Top 100 Metal Vocalists of all times, according to Hit Parader magazine.
In his musical history it is appreciated that Neil separated from MötleyCrüe to start a solo career from February 1992.
In the band's autobiography, TheDirt, it is said that he was fired because he showed more interest in auto racing than in the group, as he was participating in the Indy Lights at the time.
Subsequently, in mid-1993, his solo debut called “Exposed” was released, selling only 300,000 copies in the US, almost the same amount that the album Mötley Crüe sold in 1994, which the band recorded with the Vocalist John Corabi (formerly on The Scream), noting that all of Mötley Crüe's previous albums had sold at least a million copies.
For his part, Bogni Dario indicates that in 1995 Neil released Carved in Stone, an album with an industrial / glam metal sound produced by the Dust Brothers, it sold less than 100,000 copies in the US, and Neil's contract with Warner Bros, it eventually came to an end.
A rather controversial life, somewhat complicated and full of many casualties, it seems that this singer did not have them in his favor, on the contrary, he always had to fight heavy battles.
In this sense, it is known that as a regular client of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel, in July 2003, Neil was accused of assault after a prostitute declared that he took her by the neck and threw her against a wall, and one year later. prior to this, Neil had testified on charges of hitting producer Michael Schuman.
Continuing with his musical career, Dario Bogni indicates that in 2003, Vince Neil appeared as a soloist on the "Rock Never Stops Tour" along with other hard rock bands from the 80's, and that same year he released his third solo album, this time recorded live at the Whiskey: OneNightOnly.
Everything seemed to be improving, and in January 2004 he married Lia Gerardini, the ceremony was officiated by the minister and also part of the cast of The Surreal Life, MC Hammer.
In that same year, Vince reappeared on television for the special program Remaking Vince Neil (Remaking Vince Neil), which showed him trying to achieve success as a solo artist, however it was Mötley Crüe who received the re-release at success, as Neil and Tommy Lee put aside their differences and the band went on tour to promote the album Red, White and Crüe.
But in 2006, during a concert in Tampa (Florida), Vince Neil fell off the stage due to intoxication, the other vocalist of Mötley Crüe, John Corabi, who was on tour with Ratt, took the stage to continue the concert with Neil, so John sang almost everything that was left of the show, while Vince's words were almost unintelligible.
This is the story of a musical career marked by tragedy and the passion of a man who did what he liked but could not find harmony with his inner self.
