Nonpoint Drummer Hopes Vince Neil Pulls It Together for Crue Tour

Will Motley Crue singer Vince Neil be ready to go for the band’s Stadium Tour next year? After last month’s incident that saw the reportedly struggling vocalist walk offstage during a solo gig, Nonpoint drummer Robb Rivera contemplated the question.

Though that’s not to say Rivera, the co-founder of the nu-metal mainstays who recently released their latest single “Ruthless,” isn’t rooting for the Motley Crue frontman. Quite the contrary — the drummer, a Crue fan, voiced his wishes for a triumphant Neil return when the scheduled Motley Crue trek alongside Def Leppard, Poison and Join Jett kicks off next June.

“I feel bad for Vince,” Rivera told Sofa King Cool Magazine in a video interview that emerged on Friday (June 25). “You know, Motley Crue is such a great band. [Neil]’s got a year to get it together for next year. And, I mean, it’s sad, but I still love Motley Crue, regardless. But I know he’s had some struggles and getting older, stuff like that, it happens.”

The Nonpoint member continued, “Not everyone can be a Rob Halford, where you can still sing, or like Ronnie James Dio before he passed — he was still singing at a high level. But, you know, you have to take care of yourself. And I don’t know Vince personally, but I hope he takes the right steps. Because I know that Def Leppard and Motley Crue together is gonna be an amazing tour. I mean, anybody who lived that era, it’s gonna be like high school all over again.”

Rivera added that some “just like to put a negative light on things” when asked about his thoughts on the amount of coverage that followed Neil’s onstage difficulty. Still, the drummer “hope[s] he pulls it together.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Rivera discussed Nonpoint’s plan to issue three consecutive EPs before collecting them as an album. Nonpoint’s last studio album, X, came out in 2018; they recently released the documentary series A Path to Independence about going indie and starting their own label.

Def Leppard’s Phil Collen also recently made remarks about Neil. After the Motley Crue singer’s ill-fated May solo gig, a follow-up show was canceled. Neil’s scheduled to perform at the inaugural Monsters on the Mountain festival in Tennessee this October.

Sofa King Cool caught up with Robb from Nonpoint and we discussed their new track ‘Ruthless’ and all the attention it is getting, the video for the song and how it took a darker turn, running their own label, their cover of ‘When Doves Cry,’ getting back touring and what is next for the band.”
