VINCE NEIL Comments On Tampa Gig: 'Sometimes I Drink A Little Too Much'

July 5, 2006

MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil spoke to Tara Merrin of the Calgary Sun about his disastrous solo concert last Friday (June 30) in Tampa, Florida when he got so drunk he fell off the stage.

Ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE singer John Corabi, who is touring with RATT, saved the day when he came on stage and performed with Neil, who admitted his words, at that point, were mostly just mumblings.

"I was pretty buzzed. I tripped, fell off (the stage) — sometimes it happens," he told the Calgary Sun.

"But, this isn't a tour. This is just me going out and having fun and sometimes, yeah, I drink a little too much. That's just the way it is."

And as for those not-so-flattering reviews of that show, Neil says after 25 years of being bashed in the media for everything from drug addiction to a fatal car wreck that landed him in jail, he couldn't care less.

That's because, he adds, no matter what has been said about him, he continues to lead one of the biggest rock bands in the world.

"I just finished 185 shows with MÖTLEY CRÜE, so one show in Tampa where I drank a little too much — whoopdie-doo.

"I am still doing my shows and I'm going to record another MÖTLEY CRÜE album and then be back out on tour — by then nobody's really going to care anymore."
