At the peak of his power, Vince Neil was the lead singer of America’s most iconic ‘hair metal’ band. Today, at 61, he is doing the exact same thing he was a generation ago: selling out stadiums across the states.
In an early scene in his new documentary, Vince Neil walks through the narrow hallways of the Whisky a Go Go, the vaunted rock club at the heart of West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip.
For as much prestige and notoriety that being the lead singer of Motley brought Neil, his traumatic experiences were also widely publicized due to his popularity. This is not something that he shies away from in the documentary, as Neil speaks candidly on multiple tragedies he has seen in his time in the limelight.
Neil also shares his early years: He grew up in Compton, California; took ice skating lessons with his sister; and chose music over baseball, because the high school team would have forced him to cut his hair!
