Mötley Crüe’s frontman, Vince Neil, recently posted a photo of himself driving on his Instagram account and while some fans observed that he has lost weight, others warned him about the dangers of driving drunk.
As you know, Mötley Crüe was founded back in 1981 in Los Angeles and the band achieved mainstream success in just a couple of years. Although they were really good at music, that was not the only thing they were known for. Mötley Crüe members were highly famous for their backstage antics, endless alcohol and drug abuse, and their reputation of destroying hotel rooms.
Their mischievousness went on throughout their career but one of the band members actually experienced a very real consequence of drinking and driving when his irresponsible actions led to the death of his friend. As you may recall, in late 1984 Vince Neil collided his car with an oncoming vehicle and led to the death of his friend Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle, and the permanent brain damage of the two passengers driving the other car.
Vince Neil suffered the consequences of his irresponsible driving and his ex-wife Beth stated that he never recovered from this tragedy. Recently, Neil posted a photo of himself driving on his Instagram account and some fans decided to ‘joke’ about how he shouldn’t drive if he’s drunk. At that point, some other fans intervened and said that it shouldn’t be a matter of joking because Vince Neil never got over his deadly mistake and has been struggling every day to forgive himself.
Here’s what Vince Neil said in the caption of his recent Instagram post:
“Today driving the NTT INDYCAR new circuit in Downtown Nashville. Coming this summer!”
And a fan commented:
“Better not be drunk driving lmao.”
To which a fan responded:
“You have no idea how much that probably affects him to this day. He probably really regrets that.”
And another fan said:
“He killed his best friend. Watch the movie, he made a huge mistake. Doesn’t seem too funny to me.”
