MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil was recently asked by Hard Radio to comment on where his ex-bandmates are at psychologically right now, beginning with former CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee. "Well, me and Tommy went to high school together and we were great friends when we were younger," Vince said. "You know, I think Tommy just believes too much of his own press, for his own good. He can be a really nice guy but all of a sudden, once he married Heather [Locklear], he thought he was a movie star, and he thinks he still is. And I think he's just forgotten what his roots were, which is that he's a great drummer. But he refuses to play drums anymore. Mick [Mars] is just Mick — he's never really changed. He doesn't socialize at all. He's the kind of guy who would much rather just sit at home and play his guitar, rather than get out on the road. Mick just follows whatever is gonna... Mick doesn't like to make any decisions (laughs), he just likes to flow. In terms of guitar, Mick always had his own thing going. He looked cool and he had some great tones out of his guitar and played some pretty memorable stuff on the records. I've always admired him as a guitar player. And Nikki, Nikki's kind of single-handedly fucked up MÖTLEY CRÜE, and it's sad. We were supposed to tour last year, we were supposed to tour this year and he refuses to do it, and it's really screwed everything up. I don't want to sit around and wait for these guys anymore and he's making a lot of decisions without telling other people in the band. Like these reissues and stuff, and so now I have to take him to court and sue him, and it's a sad thing when that happens."

In same interview, Vince once again reiterated that he is done with MÖTLEY CRÜE and he is no longer pushing to see the group reunited. "I really have no interest," he stated emphatically. "My CRÜE days are over. Like I say, I'm having way too much fun not having to deal with those guys as personalities. It's fun just being out here and having guys that actually want to be onstage and are excited about it. You know... it's refreshing."
