We’ve already ragged on Vince Neil enough about the car crash that killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle. That was nearly 30 years ago, so we’d cut him some slack and hope that he’d have moved on from that tragic accident. Yet the two arrests on suspicion of drunk driving he’s had in the last six years seems to suggest that he hasn’t learned much. He’s lucky he hasn’t killed anyone else, including himself. And even when not behind the wheel of a car, he’s been in enough fights with fans, soundpeople, bandmates and prostitutes that he’s alienated quite a few people. Yet the Crue continue to be one of the most popular bands out there, and will be doing a second residency in Las Vegas later this year.
