No new Crue album – Vince Neil
Short cut: Vince Neil
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil suggests the band may never make another full-length album – although an EP may be on the horizon.
The band’s last LP was 2008′s Saints Of Los Angeles, and the singer hints that it may have been their final outing in the format. Instead, they could focus on shorter releases after launching a one-off track, Sex, in 2012.
He tells Music News Nashville: “No new album. What I’m hearing is that maybe two, three or four more songs might come out, to go with that song we released last year.
“But it will be something like an EP, not an album. Our schedule seems to have a lot of touring. If something did come out in the form of an EP, it would probably be in the beginning of 2014.”
But Neil insists it’s not difficult to write new material. “There aren’t really any hard songs to write,” he says. “If it gets hard it gets shuffled away and something else comes up, or it becomes something you can go back to and use other parts to make it work better. Most of the hit songs have been easy to write, though.”
And while he can strum a six-string, he admits: “I wouldn’t call myself a guitar player, but it’s fun to do. I love it when I have a chance to play a song live and also play guitar on the song. It’s something different, and it’s a different look for fans watching the show.”
