Vince Neal is thinking of quitting Motley Crue after their three week residency at Vegas' Hard Rock Cafe is over in Febuary.
This is what Neil had to say to the Las Vegas Sun: ""It's not definite, but I am thinking seriously about it…"
"I'm sitting on my yacht, contemplating my future, and I'm not sure it will be with Motley Crue after Las Vegas. Great things are coming up and pushing me in another direction.
"This is all about me thinking about the second half of my life, thinking about my future, and that future might not include Motley Crue after Vegas. There are so many opportunities that are in front of me that I'm really excited about. 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. 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."
I don't know what to say.
If this is true, if there is no more Neal in Crue, it is horrifying.
This happened before in the early 1990s and I now consider them the worse years of my life and if it is going to happen again, I just don't know if I can handle it. Vince did say "not definite" so I am holding on to that hope, I am grasping it, and not letting it go,. Maybe, just maybe, wiser minds, will prevail. Maybe this madness will come to an end.
All we can do is pray.
