Vince has had two careers, one being the frontman of world class rock band, Motley Crue, and his side stint as a solo artist releasing his own material. Born in Hollywood, Vince was never too far from the Sunset Strip, either in-person, or at heart.

Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee invited Vince to join the Crue and history commenced henceforth. This all came to be because Neil and Lee knew each other in high school.

Speaking of Vince, here's a cool video where he was interviewed by Sammy Hagar
