Nikki Sixx Says Vince Neil DUI Arrest Won’t Affect Tour
July 27, 2010
Motley Crue star Nikki Sixx is adamant Vince Neil’s recent arrest won’t affect the band’s upcoming shows – but concedes his bandmate is currently “struggling with different demons”.
The singer’s car was pulled over by police as he drove through Las Vegas last month and he was detained on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI).
Neil is facing one count of DUI-Liquor and police are also investigating allegations he was embroiled in a scuffle with a female fan who claimed he broke her camera outside the city’s Hilton Hotel.
But Sixx is convinced Neil won’t let his personal problems have a negative impact on the band – insisting they are all set to join Ozzy Osbourne’s Ozzfest tour, which kicks off on 14 August in Devore, California.
Speaking on his radio program, The Side Show with Nikki Sixx, the rocker says, “No, it’s not gonna affect the tour at all. I mean, listen, we all struggle with different demons in our life and I think that Vince is not unlike anyone else in the band. He handles his affairs in the way that’s right for him to handle them.”
