In a new interview with Little Punk People, Steel Panther singer Michael Starr and drummer Stix Zadinia were asked to select a musician they would bring back from the dead.
Here’s the conversation:
“Okay, I’m gonna pick a singer, but it’s not to replace you [Michael]. You know who I’d bring back from the dead? Ray Gillen. You didn’t expect that? He was the singer for Badlands [died in 1993 at age 34].
“I’d bring back Vince Neil.”
“He’s not dead.”
“I’d bring back the Vince Neil from back in the day because that guy is dead.”
“You didn’t bring back John Bonham, dude.”
“You know what? It would be too intimidating to sing along with him. Like, John Bonham, he is the best musical heavy-metal drummer of all time – there’s nobody better than him, no drummer even comes close to this guy.”
Legendary rockers Mötley Crüe have entertained us with some of the classic glam rock songs in the last few decades. Having sold 100 million albums worldwide has made them one of the best-selling bands of all time. Fans love the Crue boys and without any doubt, 1989’s Dr. Feelgood is Mötley Crüe’s most popular album which reached number one. Motley Crue boys have also achieved seven platinum or multi-platinum certifications, six Top 20 pop singles, twenty-two Top 40 mainstream rock hits, and nine Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart. Vince Neil is one of the most loved frontmen in the history of rock music. Love him or hate him, Vince Neil doesn’t give a damn about anyone.
