About Vince Neil
Vince, Neil’s father, had already started his music career at just 17 years old.
He met Neil’s mother through a mutual friend after a skateboarding accident in which Vince had broken his leg. Tami helped and comforted him, and they fell in love soon after. They dated for a year, conceived Wharton before Vince left to form his now-famous band ‘Motley Crue’, and married his first wife, Beth Lynn.
Vince had a daughter with Beth Lynn named Elizabeth Ashely Wharton, who is now an American celebrity.
Vince released his first album, Too Fast For Love, in 1981 and then Shout at the Devil in 1989, which became the highest seller that year.
He then separated from Motley Crue in 1992 and went solo, releasing his album Exposed in 1993, which was named on the Billboard List.
However, he reunited with the band in 1997 and has given numerous hits since then.
Vince Neil had a tough childhood, constantly moving around the United States. His family lived in Inglewood, Watts, and then Glendora, where they finally settled for good.
Vince has been married and divorced four times. Neil was actually Vince’s oldest child with his partner Tami Jones.
Motley Crue’s frontman, Vince Neil, was involved in a drunk driving car accident that killed Nicholas Dingley. Police discovered Vince’s blood alcohol level to be 0.17, and as a result of the accident, he had to spend 15 days in jail and pay a $2.5 million fine to the victim’s family.

The Career of Neil Jason Wharton
Neil was inspired by his father’s career as a musician and enjoyed music and singing from a young age. However, he didn’t pursue his own career in music until his early 20s.
After graduating, Neil went to work as a front desk administrator in Harrah’s Casinos in Nevada. He worked there for a while before jumping into the world of music.
Neil was pushed into the spotlight early on as the only son of the frontman for Motley Crue. He built his career and paved the way in rock music by forming his own band called Rock’ n’ Roll Junkies.
The Rock’ n’ Roll Junkies is well-known for performing at local events and arenas – many of which have sold out.
Furthermore, the band covers Motley Crue songs. In addition to his musical talent, Neil has also been helping the Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation through his concerts.
Vince Neil set up the Memorial Foundation in memory of his daughter Skylar, who passed away from stomach cancer at the age of four.
Rock’ n’ Roll Junkies usually perform at Cruefests shows in Los Angeles and Cleveland, and they are well-known for their spot-on Crue impersonations.
The band comprises Steven, Drummer Patrick, Bassist: Metty Vincent, and Neil.
The band loves performing Crue’s “Take Me to the Top” and “Primal Scream,” but according to Neil, the crowd always goes wild for “Ten Seconds to Love.”
Since his father’s successful music career inspired him, Neil has been dedicated to music full-time since he was in his early 20s.
Although Neil hasn’t received any awards or recognition yet, we can imagine him achieving great things with his band in the coming years because he sounds exactly like his father.
