Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil is reported to be playing at President elect, Donald J. Trump’s, inauguration ceremony.

According to Billboard, Neil was asked about his availability “months ago.” The singer will be performing with his own band.

“The promoters asked if I was available, and I said ‘yes,’” Neil reveals. “So we sent all of the band’s passports to the Secret Service so everybody can get in, and all of the crew people, not knowing who was winning. But we were already scheduled to play.”

Neil said he was amused the night of the third debate in Las Vegas, when a guest that resembled him appeared at the end, igniting a debate on Twitter as to whether he was there. Even his 83-year-old mother believed it.

“My mom called me, and said, ‘I saw you shaking Donald Trump’s hand!’ [But] I wasn’t there! … The funny thing is I was invited to go and I just decided not to and watch it from home,” he says. “I think just because there was a guy with long blonde hair from Las Vegas, it’s got to be Vince Neil, right? ‘Hey, Vince, you shaved!’ Not really.”

As for what other bands are confirmed — or what he will perform, Neil says he’s still unsure.

“I don’t know how long I have to play. I don’t know if the Republican Party says which [songs] to play and what not to do,” he says. “It’s a little ways out. I’ll have more information as time goes on.”

Neil is also scheduled to appear on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger, airing on NBC this January.

    I’m thinking campaign manager Kellyanne Conway took a meeting with cultural conservative VP-elect Mike Pence and they decided Vince was too edgy and that Motley Crue have too much of a past to have Vince for the inauguration show. There is no truth to the rumor that they have asked Wayne Newton to perform “Danke Schoen” instead, although they should. Maybe Twister Sister will get the nod now, with “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” It’s weird, because Vince would not have fit a Hillary inauguaral at all, more like Melissa Esthridge, or Bon Jovi.

    I vote Nugent with “Stranglehold” because that’s what Trump’s got on the levers of power now.
