This may be Neil's last performance before his new MTV reality-makeover show, The Remaking of Vince Neil (based on Fox's hit show The Swan), debuts in August. Original fans of Neil's glory days as the "Live Wire" vocalist for the Crüe -- prior to his becoming metal's favorite punchline -- are among those seeking a pre-plastic-surgery peek. The former frontman and his feral L.A. foursome, who emblazoned the Sunset Strip's sound with its steel-toed stomp and pioneered the power ballad, used to make number-one hits instead of tabloid headlines. Routine athletic training and all the other work involved in Neil's MTV-sponsored attempt to mirror his former success should help the Crüe mouthpiece in "Going On With the Show."
See the voice behind the act's new boxed set "Music to Crash Your Car To," when Vince Neil joins a trough of entertainers such as Ratt and Slaughter at Hawgfest this Saturday; then stay through Sunday to see ZZ Top and more.
