Vince Neil Thinking Of Creative Ways To Capitalize On His “Fondness For Drinking”

Jun 21st, 2007 // 9 Comments

vince.jpgNo doubt inspired by the massive success of Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Tequila, noted vintner Vince Neil has decided to jump into the tequila-making game as well. The West Roxbury Transcript looked at Neil’s newest sideline with a piece that made frequent references to his status as an “alcohol aficionado”–although to be fair, making wine and tequila is probably more lucrative for Neil than losing the words to his songs in a bottle:

To capitalize on his fondness for drinking, despite having at least one trip to rehab, Neil was at Gary’s Liquors on the VFW Parkway to promote his three types of tequila called Vince Neil’s Tres Rios.

“It’s just good stuff … it’s made down outside of Guadalajara [Mexico],” said Neil of the three types: silver, reposado and anejo. All three types are aged for different durations and different ways.

Neil, an alcohol aficionado, also owns his own vineyard, but this past Friday he was focusing on his latest venture, tequila.

“I like tequila … there’s no worms in these. It’s a fun thing. It’s little bit more rock ‘n’ roll,” said the Motley Crue singer whose band was known for songs such as “Girls, Girls, Girls” “Shout at the Devil” and “Home Sweet Home.”

A little bit more rock and roll, huh? Guess that means it won’t taste like deli meat.

    Vince Neil’s Tres Rios, huh?
    I guess “I used to sing in a fucking shitty band and I missed the irony of having my own tequila brand when i killed someone from drunk driving, and, oh yeah, i’m a douche bag” is too long to fit on the bottle?

    @Aquemini: That name’s a little long, but it certainly goes well with the Motley Crue-quoting Chevy ad that’s on the back of the current issue of Spin.

    Nice that in the above photo Neil seems to be working the lucrative “tween” market.

    Also, I should report that staring closely at that photo induces nausea. And, Vince Neil has tiny hands.

    Forget what motivates Vince-what kind of family drives to a liquor store so the kids can meet a washed-up rock star?

    Maura- Chevy is just firing back against Ford’s Toby Keith ad, in their battle for the stupid fucking American with terrible taste in music demographic.

    Cabo Wabo is good. I think I have said this before on these message boards.

    The [insert YOUR neighborhood name HERE] Transcript is the local weekly paper that runs stories about garage sales and little league / youth soccer results. Once you’ve determined that the coach forgot to mention your RBI groundout to shortstop (or misspelled your name) and clipped the school lunch menu for the next week, the Transcript goes quickly to the bottom of the birdcage or recycling bin.

    “9-year-old Alyssa Jameson (‘As in the whiskey,’ said the youngster)” — that’s clearly the core market for the Crue in the new millenium.

    I was hoping to find a home video of the event (just to count how many times Vince is told that he’s “wicked”), but instead I found the YouTube promotional clip of Vince Neil’s tattoo parlor on the Vegas Strip. Wait for the special guest appearance around 4 minutes in…

    I’m very pissed off regarding your comment above, especially that you put my daughters statement way out of context. When it comes to people asking the correct spelling of my last name, such as the reporters who asked for our names that day, I always reply jokingly “It’s spelled like the Irish whiskey. For many years it agitated me to spell it out every time anyone asked. So to make light of the situation, I always say that. My little girl did the same thing as I do that day. She meant nothing by it, she just repeated what I always say when it comes to the questioning of the spelling of our last name. For you to take that to a whole new level makes you an asshole. “That’s clearly the core market for the crue in the new millenium” From your reviews & comments that I read, it really doesn’t take that much to realize that your not a much of a fan of Motley Crue, but it doesn’t give you the right to use a quote from a 9 year old little girl to take a jab at them.

  9. “Fondness of drinking” huh? Why not being honest and say “alcoholic”?
