Vince Neil: A Rock n' Roll Outlaw Brings Football Back to Las Vegas

When someone mentions Motley Crue, it’s hard not to think of Los Angeles where the girls, girls, girls are dancing down on the Sunset Strip. The band got its start in sleazy L.A. back when you could actually find a parking spot near classic clubs like the Whiskey a Go Go and The Roxy Theatre.
