The legendary frontman of the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil has unveiled the biggest goal of the band in their early years during his latest conversation with Zane Griggs about their great comeback with The Stadium Tour.
Within his recent appearance on the video podcast of Zane Griggs, who is the fitness coach of Neil, the iconic singer has talked about his intense preparation period for Crüe’s 2021 tour, with co-headliners, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.
While revealing that he’s getting in shape through a low-carb diet and intermittent fasting for nearly a year away tour, Vince Neil has recalled the forming period of Mötley Crüe. Speaking of the success of the band for almost 40 years now, Vince has admitted that they didn’t even think to last longer than a year in the beginning.
He said they were only four guys playing the clubs in Hollywood and they really wanted to be the biggest band in Hollywood, nothing more. Vince continued by saying they didn’t really think about other cities or touring or anything like that.
Here’s what was asked to Vince Neil about Mötley Crüe’s long-lasting success:
“What was it that motivates you guys to do what you do? I mean like was it just the love of performing and just changing your look and being creative or you’re like trying to be the best trying to hit the top of the charts?”
Vince Neil responded as:
“No, we just started because we were just four guys playing the clubs in Hollywood. We just really wanted to be the biggest band in Hollywood, that was our only goal.
We didn’t really think about other cities or touring or anything like that we just wanted to play like the whiskey on a Friday, Saturday night. You know something like that. That was like our goal.”
