Vince Neil ‘Seriously Thinking’ About Quitting Mötley Crüe

Chatting recently with former ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’ host Robin Leach from his yacht in the Bahamas, Vince Neil said he’s “seriously thinking about” leaving Motley Crue after the band’s February residency at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel.

“There are so many opportunities that are in front of me that I’m really excited about,” the newly divorced 50-year-old frontman said in a story published yesterday (Dec. 20) in the Las Vegas Sun. “I just don’t want to look back later in life and regret that I didn’t pursue them.”

“I’m just not sure I can give these opportunities the time and effort I’ll need to and continue with the band,” he added. “It’s been a great ride, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it, but being out here relaxing in this beautiful place has given me the chance to reflect on what direction I want the rest of my life to take. I’m really giving it a lot of thought.”

Should Neil quit now, he’d at least be going out on top. According to Leach, 2011 marked the Crue’s best-ever year of touring, and their 30th anniversary shows packed houses around the globe.

While the singer didn’t elaborate on what he might do next, the fact he’s able to do interviews from a yacht in the Bahamas suggests he’s got time to figure it out.
