Skating With The Stars: Vince Neil Talks Figure Skating And Motley Crue

December 02, 2010 02:00 PM by Lori Wilson


After landing at the bottom of the leaderboard with Sean Young on Skating With the Stars this past week, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil escaped elimination to live on for another week. Before he performed his Tango during week two of the ABC reality show, Vince Neil spoke with Billboard.com about his experience on the ice.

Vince Neil admitted to the music magazine, “It’s hard work. It’s an Olympic sport, and it’s just really tough. I’m in rehearsals from 10 in the morning ’til six o’clock at night, seven days a week. It’s pretty grueling. It’s hard on your body. I’ve got bruises all over. It’s tough.”

Comparing Skating With the Stars to its sister show, Neil mused, “Y’know, I look at the Dancing With the Stars thing and I’m like, ‘How easy is that? You’re not on ice. You’re actually on your feet in a nice, warm environment.’ We’re on ice, on a blade, trying to do things to dance on ice. It’s a whole other ball game.”

Noting rehearsal time has dramatically reduced from the first performance to the second, Neil stated, “It keeps getting harder and harder. We had five weeks to learn the first routine; now you only have five days to learn the next week’s. You’re a better skater, so it’s a little easier, but it’s tough. It’s scary. But once you accomplish it, it’s a great feeling. It’s like I never thought I’d be doing anything like this. I’m not the best at it, but I’m way better than I was six weeks ago.”

Even though he’s mastering a new skill, that doesn’t mean Vince Neil is leaving rock ‘n’ roll behind him. He told Billboard.com Motley Crue will celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary in South America in March and then launch Crue Fest tours of North America in 2011 and 2012.
