Motley Crue's Vince Neil Reveals Only Reason For Reunion

(hennemusic) As Motley Crue enter the home stretch on their career as a live touring act, frontman Vince Neil says the only likely chance of the band reappearing would be to perform at their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame - if that were ever to happen.

When Motley Crue announced their farewell tour in January of 2014, the members signed a Cessation Of Touring Agreement which forbids the band to tour beyond 2015.

"Everybody keeps coming up with these loopholes for us to get back together and play again: 'So, this Arabian prince is throwing a party; how much money is it gonna take?'," Neil tells Rolling Stone. "It's not about that, you know? I think if we got in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, that's probably the only way we'd get back together and play."

"I'm not one of these cranky guys about it," says bassist Nikki Sixx of the Rock Hall. "But I think if they got it a little bit righter, people would respect it a little bit more. Honestly, there are a lot of bands previous to Mötley Crüe that deserve to be in, if it's actually about influencing other musicians and making an impact on the planet.

"You know, the bands that have gotten in the last few years, it's cool; but let's go back and look at the people who curated this great music a little bit more. I mean, I'm a huge Mott the Hoople fan; if Mötley Crüe got in before Mott the Hoople, I'd snap! [Laughs] I'd be like, 'I'm sorry, but Ian Hunter, this is for you!'"
