Motley Crue Explode After Vince Neil Accusation


Motley Crue member Vince Neil was recently bashed after he performed a concert on July 5 in St. Louis, Missouri as part of “The Stadium Tour.” He was spotted using teleprompter.

For those who are unaware, a teleprompter, or autocue, is a display device that prompts the person speaking with an electronic visual text of a speech or script, and it is usually used by vocalists — including Judas Priest’s Rob Halford and Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne — who are getting on a bit and have a large body of work to remember.

YouTube channel Justin Newton had uploaded several video clips of the concert. Many have witnessed the clearly visible onstage teleprompter that singer Vince Neil was apparently relying on to get him through each show. Disturbed’s David Draiman, Stryper’s Michael Sweet and Shinedown’s Zach Myers are among the musicians who have defended Vince Neil in the past. Now, Nikki Sixx has voiced his opinion on the matter.

Sixx recently took to his Twitter account and gave reference to an article. He bashed them for making the topic controversial. He wrote:

“Usual bottom feeder press outlets trying to make up crap to sell their advertising. 41 years of songs and Vinnie is really working his vocals and delivery of the lyrics.I praise him for working extra hard on this tour. Journalist are usually just scabs making up clickbait. #SOS”

Few years back, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson had called out singers who use teleprompters during live performances, saying:

“I don’t use an autocue on stage. A lot of singers now, they just have the words there: ‘Breaking the law, breaking the law, breaking the law, breaking the law, breaking the law, breaking the law, breaking the law.’ Breaking the what? ‘Breaking the law. Breaking the law.’”
