The career of Vince Neil

During one of their shows, he was spotted by members of Motley Crue, including Tommy Lee, his high school friend. So he joined Motley Crue in 1981 and in his first stint he stayed with the band until 1992.
During this time, Vince and the rest of the Crew rose to worldwide fame with releases such as “Too Fast for Love”, their debut album, then “Shout at the Devil” (1983), and their most successful album “Dr. Feelgood” (1989), which was certified six times platinum in the US and three times platinum in Canada, while also being their only album to top the Billboard 200. He left the band in early 1992, but returned five years later and they began to work on the new album, “Generation Swine” which was released that same year and reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart. Their latest release was 2008’s “Saints of Los Angeles” album. They played until 2015, but went through to 2018. They have since announced that the band is working on new music.
In addition to his exceptional career with one of the most popular glam/hard rock bands, Vince has also released his own material. He has three solo albums – his debut album was released on April 27, 1993, titled “Exposed”, and reached number 13 on the Billboard 200 chart. His second studio album was nowhere near the success he had with the band, as it only reached number 139 on the Billboard 200 chart. His last solo release was the 2010 album entitled “Tattoos & Tequila”, which reached number 57 on the Billboard 200, number 14 on the US Rock chart, and topped the US Indie chart, while the climbed to No. 7.
