Vince-Neil.jpgVince Neil, the legendary front man of Mötley Crüe, is an international superstar, accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist. His unmistakable voice leads some of the greatest rock songs of a generation including “Wild Side”, “Shout at the Devil,” “Home Sweet Home,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart,” “Same Ol’ Situation,” and many others.

Raised on the tough streets of Compton, California, Vince Neil fell in love with music as a child, developing a broad vocabulary that ranged from classic Motown to Hard Rock. As a teenager, he began performing with local bands and soon discovered both a passion for the stage and a natural talent as a singer and performer.  He fronted the popular band Rock Candy before reuniting with high school buddy Tommy Lee in 1981, establishing his spot in rock and roll history with the formation of Mötley Crüe.

Mötley Crüe’s epic 34‐year run included countless multi‐platinum releases, more than 22 hit singles, 100 million albums sold and dozens of global tours with sold out arenas, inclusive of some of the largest venues in the world. The band completed “The Final Tour” on New Year’s Eve 2015, closing the book that told the story of their iconic career. Despite the Mötley Crüe departure from the rock world, however, Vince Neil shows no sign of slow down, continuing to carry on with the unending “The Legacy Continues Tour”.

Neil continues to perform all the classic Mötley Crüe hits with select cuts from his three solo albums. Additionally, this badass performer is working on new music, and has hinted about performing some of it during this tour: “I’ll say that we are recording some stuff for a new record this year,” he said in a Loudwire interview in January. “You often hear some surprises at our shows. I don’t want to give away some of those surprises… The music is exciting. It’s good, fun, nasty, raw energy and great songs.”

THERE'S ONLY ONE ALL-FEMALE HARD ROCK BAND FROM THE 80'S WHO:
     Sold over a million albums.
     Had six #1 videos on MTV.
     Had four songs in Billboard's Top 100.

Vixen was founded in St. Paul, MN by high-schooler guitarist Jan Kuehnemund. The desire to achieve the rock star dreams like so many before her, Jan took her group to Hollywood but soon retooled the line-up, which included; vocalist Janet Gardner, drummer Roxy Petrucci and bassist Share Ross (Pedersen).

In 1987 a pair of big brass balls at EMI Records decided to roll the dice with Vixen, despite all
the stereotypes regarding bands fronted by chicks was then initiated into the male dominated club of hard rock. EMI released their self-named debut album "Vixen" featuring the groups’ first hit "Edge of a Broken Heart" penned by Richard Marx and Fee Waybill (The Tubes). MTV became Vixen’s playground and so coupled with exhaustive touring Vixen
embarked on their ride.

Piling on more hits the band charted Billboard at #22 with ballad, "Cryin'“ and "Love Made Me" at #36. The road continued to call opening for Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Eddie Money and many others. Vixens had firmly distinguished themselves as a premiere rock act to be
taken seriously.

With the pistons still popping, Vixen released their second album; "Rev It Up" was a success with "How Much Love" as the prized single performed live on The Arsenio Hall Show. The group Vixen-ize their fans on worldwide tours with heavyweights KISS and Scorpions, which fueled the International frenzy. The ballad, "Love Is A Killer" rose on the charts along with the rocker "Not A Minute Too Soon" once again establishing Vixen as not just performers but hit songwriters.

Autograph left an everlasting imprint on Rock ‘N’ Roll. The platinum-selling Southern California hard rock juggernauts gave the world the ubiquitous hit “Turn Up the Radio”, seminal albums such as Sign In Please [1984], That’s The Stuff [1985], and Loud and Clear [1987] as well as unforgettable sold out shows alongside everybody from Mötley Crüe and Ronnie James Dio to Van Halen and Aerosmith. Given those accolades, when they disbanded in 1989, they never left the hearts and minds of millions of fans around the globe. Simply put, a reunion was both inevitable and essential.

In 2011, founding guitarist Steve Lynch and bassist Randy Rand decided to meet up at the NAMM show in Anaheim. They rekindled their friendship first, opening up the lines of communication and bonding more than ever before. With the relationship rebuilt, they made a collective decision to jam again. “We approached our original singer Steve Plunkett about a reunion,” recalls Lynch. “He didn’thave the time to join the band again due to how busy his business is. He did give us his blessing to move forward though, and that was important. We missed our fans. This is for them.”

Fully embracing the future, the remaining members caught some videos of singer/guitarist Simon Daniels of Jailhouse on YouTube. Instantly, they sensed a connection and knew that he was meant for the open spot in the center stage. “He has big shoes to fill,” smiles Rand. “Nevertheless, he was born to front Autograph. His hard-edged, bluesy voice and massive riffing sharpen our edge. He’s given us a new energy, and he impressed us immediately.” “We all had a euphoric feeling after the first rehearsal,” Lynch adds. “These songs hadn’t been played in 25 years, and it was indescribable. It was great to be making music with my friends again.” With the lineup solidified, Autograph stand poised to shake Rock ‘n’ Roll up yet again. It’s as if every element has been enhanced from the guitars to the bass and vocals as well as drums with the addition of drummer Marc Wieland. Lynch puts it best, “We’re much heavier than before. We’re not using keyboards and we’re tuning down for a much fatter sound. That strengthens everything. At the same time, the melodic vocals and catchy hooks are still an integral part of our sound.”

Successfully touring again since the beginning of 2014 Autograph has strived and shined at theaters, casinos, various venues and major festivals as M3, Monsters of Rock Cruise, The Moondance Jam, Firefest, The Halfway Jam among others reaching the 4 corners of the USA along with Canada and the UK as well as releasing 2 new anthem singles with one of them "I Lost My Mind in America" making the TOP 10 ITUNES Charts and a crowd favorite " You Are Us, We Are You" receiving great reviews and airplay as well. The band delivers an undeniably bombastic live performance and was featured recently in the USA TODAY news website. A new EP is due to be released soon as the  Timeless Classic Rock Anthem Top 40 HIT Single "Turn up the Radio" continues to receive constant  and permanent Radio Airplay in all Major Rock Radio stations around the World.
