Born Vincent Neil Wharton got interested in music since his school years. Then the idea to become a band member captured the hearts of all teenagers in LA. Vince met Tommy Lee at a high school and later they formed a band “Mötley Crüe” alongside other musicians, Nikki Six and Mick Mars.
The band became popular with such hits as “Too Fast for Love”, “Shout at the Devil”, “Girls, Girls, Girls” etc. Vince Neil was known not just with his great vocals, but also with his long blonde hair and unusual make-up.
