Vince Neil: ‘It’s Time’ for Motley Crue to Say Goodbye
Motley Crue's end is in sight. The group started publicly talking about hanging up their guitars for good early last month with Nikki Sixx providing come recent clarification on the group's decision to call it a day. Now, in a new interview, Vince Neil confirms what many of us already know.
"It's time, that's really it," Vince told the Toronto Sun. "Do you want to go out on top rather than fading away? And that's it. You know, I'll continue to sing Motley with my solo band and put out solo records and stuff and Nikki's got his radio show and [drummer] Tommy [Lee] wants to be a deejay, and so we'll see what happens."
Neil's recent interview doesn't necessarily share any shocking revelations but he is frank about the reasons why he believes it's time to quit. With more than 80 million records sold over the course of their career, Neil admits it will be a long goodbye of sorts. He says the group hopes to release a new record next year and will then spend the bulk of 2014 and 2015 on the road.
"We're going to put out some new music next year and then it's our farewell tour -- we'll do the world one more time and then call it a day. Our farewell tour (will be like) 2014 or '15. Tours last about two years. So to finish the world, you've got to do the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia...it takes some time."
