    Vince Neil at Celebrate Virginia After Hours I told them about you bro. They saw you and theyre stoked, admitted Mtley Cre drummer Tommy Lee to future lead vocalist Vince Neil the night the band came out to see the bleached blonde singer perform with his band Rock Candy at the famed Hollywood nightclub, Starwood. Neil, however, was apprehensive at first as he was very happy with his current band but agreed to an audition the next weekend as to not hurt Lees feelings. The singer was quickly ushered into the band, and for the next decade they embarked on a heavy metal odyssey full of music, mayhem, and four consecutive multi-platinum albums. Born Vince Neil Wharton on February 8, 1961, in Hollywood, CA, Neil was the focal point of the band with his long blonde hair and screeching vocal style. While not a schooled vocalist, Neil definitely looked the part. Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, he epitomized the carefree California surfer dude image, which was, at the time, the ideal persona for a heavy metal front man ( la David Lee Roth). After Neil joined Mtley Cre in 1981, the band recorded the self-produced album Too Fast for Love, which attracted the attention of Elektra Records Tom Zutaut. They were subsequently signed and in 1983 released their major-label debut, Shout at the Devil, that went on to become a multi-platinum smash and launched the band into superstardom. Mtley Cre pressed on and released 1985s Theatre Of Pain which quickly went multi-platinum as did 1987s Girls, Girls, Girls and 1989s Dr. Feelgood, an album that became the bands biggest success. Following the massive tour to support Dr. Feelgood, Neil was fired from the band. As a result, the singer embarked on a semi-successful solo career, teaming up with former Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens on 1993s Exposed, which sold respectably. In 1995, Neil released the Dust Brothers produced Carved in Stone which failed to live up to expectations. Mtley Cre also failed to recapture their 80s success with their 1994 self-titled album and asked Neil to rejoin the band in 1997. 1997s Generation Swine saw the band reunited with their original lead singer, Neil, and the original lineup of guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx, and drummer Tommy Lee. This lineup would not last long, however, as Tommy Lee would leave the band in 1999. Following yet another departure, the band released New Tattoo in 2000. Eric Linden, All Music Guide
