vinceneil400pix Motley Crue singer Vince Neil appears to have lightened his stance over the band’s upcoming permanent split.

Last week they appeared determined to emphasize there would be no coming back after they complete their Final Tour and release a movie based on celebrated biography The Dirt.

They signed a legally binding agreement in front of press witnesses, allegedly making it impossible for them to regroup after the end of 2015.

Last year bassist Nikki Sixx vowed the Crue would “blow its own brains out” to ensure there was no chance of a comeback. And since the January press conference he’s stated that his side-project Sixx AM will become his main focus, while guitarist Mick Mars has said he’ll concentrate on solo work.

But Neil tells 93.3KDKB “Here’s the thing – Motley Crue’s not breaking up. We’re still going to be making music. We’re still selling merchandise and stuff. We’ll make music; do songs for certain things. Motley Crue will still be around. We’re just not going to tour any more. That’s really kind of it.”

He even says there’s a chance of the band performing together after their self-imposed deadline. “Somebody brought that up. They said: ‘If you’re inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, would you get back together?’ Probably so, but that would be it.”

At least he’s firm with his colleagues on one matter: “They go: ‘If a Saudi prince gave you ten million each, would you do it?’ No. Everybody’s looking for the loophole, the grey area. We’re done. There’s no more touring.”

    While still working on his chops, a young Mick Mars played Lute at the Last Supper.

    Nothing adds up here. These guys were obviously smokin’ in the boys room during math class. Like Lee said before, record sales/royalties are pretty much nil these days. Touring revenue for some bands is great, others mediocre. (I seriously doubt Motley Crue will sell out this summer.) But add in a lavish rock ‘n roll lifestyle and there’s a recipe for bankrupcy. These guys must have made millions, but as is the case with most rock ‘n rollers probably spent millions and didn’t invest wisely. We’ll see.

    The one-off shows will increase, the Hard Rock residency extended and Vince on the road forever with Sarzo. Back catalog is deceased. Their income is touring. Tommy does DJ gigs. They toured to save Vince’s house once, he lost it anyway, he’s downsixxed to Vegas.

    Does anyone really care anymore. It is only a matter of time before they are back out on the road again. They haven’t made a decent album in 25 years or more.

    Wow….no respect for one of the great rock bands….its a miracle they’re still around at all. Saints Of Los Angeles had some great songs , as did New Tattoo. Screw you guys…..whos been around 30 years and made 2 decent albums in last 10 years? Live, they are still entertaining, Vince is the same as last 15 years but heavier…mick is still near death……Nikki is still a madman live…and Tommy still whips out his di……..uh…….crazy drum solos. It’s entertainment…and they still deliver.
