Frontman Vince Neil has slammed haters for continuous focus on band’s inner turmoils. He said:
“Just because we stopped touring doesn’t mean we broke up,” he told Finland’s Kaaos TV in a new interview. “We just decided not to tour anymore. We still do things with the band. We’re still gonna put out music, we’re still gonna put out merchandise, we’re still gonna do things as MÖTLEY CRÜE — except for tour. That’s really it.”
“The movie’s just another cool MÖTLEY CRÜE thing, and it kind of really has nothing to do with touring,” he explained. “It’s a movie. Who knows? In another four or five years, maybe we’ll put something else out. I don’t know. We’re just gonna have to wait and see. Because I’m busy touring right now. I know the other guys have different projects too. And we’ll see if we can fit in people’s schedules whatever else comes up.”
“I was really pleasantly surprised, because I didn’t know if it was gonna be this really low-budget film,” he said. “Because you can make really bad films very easily. But after the first 10 minutes of watching the movie, I forgot it was about us and I just was enjoying a really good film.”
Neil added that he had no trepidation about having an actor portray him on the screen in a movie based on MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s 2001 biography.
“It wasn’t me that was nervous; it was actually the guy that played me [Australian-born actor Daniel Webber] who was nervous. He wanted to make sure he did a really good job. And he did. I think each guy that played each of the bandmembers pulled it off — I mean, exact. You get everybody’s personalities right there on film. It’s pretty neat to watch.”
