Vince Neil was asked if he wishes Motley Crue could tour behind ‘The Dirt’ biopic in a new interview.
“Just because we stopped touring doesn’t mean we broke up,” he told Finland’s Kaaos TV in a new interview. “We just decided not to tour anymore. We still do things with the band. We’re still gonna put out music, we’re still gonna put out merchandise, we’re still gonna do things as Motley Crue — except for tour. That’s really it.”
Neil said he doesn’t want the band to tour in 2019 behind ‘The Dirt.’
“The movie’s just another cool Motley Crue thing, and it kind of really has nothing to do with touring,” he explained. “It’s a movie. Who knows? In another four or five years, maybe we’ll put something else out. I don’t know. We’re just gonna have to wait and see. Because I’m busy touring right now. I know the other guys have different projects too. And we’ll see if we can fit in people’s schedules whatever else comes up.”
Neil said he’s pleased with ‘The Dirt’ film.
“I was really pleasantly surprised, because I didn’t know if it was gonna be this really low-budget film,” he said. “Because you can make really bad films very easily. But after the first 10 minutes of watching the movie, I forgot it was about us and I just was enjoying a really good film.”
He added about being portrayed in the film, “It wasn’t me that was nervous; it was actually the guy that played me [Australian-born actor Daniel Webber] who was nervous. He wanted to make sure he did a really good job. And he did. I think each guy that played each of the bandmembers pulled it off — I mean, exact. You get everybody’s personalities right there on film. It’s pretty neat to watch.”
