MOTLEY CRUE frontman Vince Neil is working on the pilot for a new A&E reality-TV show. According to Vince, the program will follow the singer and his family after his parents have moved in with him. Neil told Eddie Trunk of the “Friday Night Rocks” radio show on New York’s Q104.3 FM last night (February 9), “My wife [Lia] hasn’t talked to my mom since the wedding,” which took place January 9, 2005 in Las Vegas.

In other news, Neil has confirmed rumors that MOTLEY CRUE will head back to Europe in June for some festival appearances, which will likely include a stop at the Download festival in England. According to Neil, the band has written more than a hundred songs for a proposed new studio album, which is expected to be released sometime in 2008.

Neil has scheduled a number of solo headlining dates in Australia and the U.S. during March/April. He will be performing the red-hot hits of MOTLEY CRUE (including “Kickstart My Heart”, “Girls Girls Girls”, “Dr. Feelgood” and “Home Sweet Home”) with his all-star band featuring Dana Strum (SLAUGHTER, VINNIE VINCENT INVASION) on bass, Jeff Blando (SLAUGHTER) on guitar and Will Hunt (TOMMY LEE, DARK NEW DAY, SKRAPE) on drums.

The hard-hitting Will Hunt is no stranger to MOTLEY CRUE, having substituted a tendonitis-suffering Tommy Lee last year for some shows on the CRUE’s “Carnival of Sins” tour. He previously toured the world playing drums in Tommy Lee’s solo band.
