Anne Erickson of Music News Nashville recently conducted an interview with MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.
Music News Nashville: Have any of MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s hits been especially difficult to write?
Vince: There aren’t really any hard songs to write. It’s usually pretty easy, if it gets hard, it gets shuffled away and something else comes up, or it becomes something you can go back to it and use other parts with it to make it work better. Most of the hit songs have been easy to write, though.
Music News Nashville: How do you go about writing music with the CRÜE?
Vince: It starts out with a guitar riff, and then we put it together with the other instruments and put a melody to it. After the melody and song structure are finished, we edit different parts in and out, and eventually, it all combines to become a song.
Music News Nashville: Is there talk of a new MÖTLEY CRÜE album?
Vince: No — no new album. What I’m hearing is that maybe two or three or four more songs might come out to go with that song we released [last] year, but it will be something like an EP, not an album. Our schedule seems to have a lot of touring. If something did come out in the form of an EP, it would probably be in the beginning of 2014.
