Motley Vince versus Frank Sinatra’s ghost
Motley Crue singer Vince Neil lived through an “overwhelming experience” as he and a TV crew tried to capture the spirit of Frank Sinatra in an old Las Vegas hotel.
Neil was special guest on Ghost Adventure as he brought a group of female friends to party with him in the ninth-floor suite used by Sinatra in the days when he performed in the Riviera Hotel and Casino.
The paranormal investigators recorded evidence of three ghostly voices, several noises and lights – and at one point Neil appeared to be possessed by the spirit of someone who may have died on the premises.
As they settled into Sinatra’s suite, Neil said: “Frank, I’m Vince from Motley Crue. We had a relationship. Do you remember? Frank, do you remember putting your hands on my wife’s boobs? I just want to know.”
Believing there was a presence in the room, host Zak Bagans asked: “What’s the name of this hotel?” A female voice apparently replied via a radio detector: “Riviera.”
Neil suggested he and his girlfriend Raine relocate to Sinatra’s bedroom, at which point the show was interrupted by an unidentified noise. A light was seen moving from a corner of the room onto the bed. Neil asked: “Frank, are you here on this bed? Do you know the name of the girl I’m with?” A detector recorded the word “Raindrop.”
The Crue singer asked the presence to knock on the wall, and a series of knocking sounds was heard in response. “Are you fucking kidding me?” Neil said.
Later, after Miss Nevada Jade Kelsall, a sceptic, felt fingers up her back then revealed scratch marks in the same place, Neil and Raine wandered around the ninth floor in the dark. In one room he reported feeling “chills” and “sadness” before exhibiting the symptoms of what Bagans said could be a heart attack.
“If there’s someone in there with Vince will you please leave?” the host demanded. A detector recorded the reply: “I’m dead.”
Sinatra’s personal pianist Bruce Westcott, who entertained the party throughout the evening, said: “I think there was a connected feeling with everyone. That’s the way Frank would have liked it.”
In June last year Neil reported he’d seen the spirit of his dead daughter Skylar.
