MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil is featured in a new commercial for the loan approval machine from Dollar Loan Center, a short-term loan provider with more than 50 locations all over Nevada and Utah.
Dollar Loan Center CEO and founder Chuck Brennan is a longtime rock music lover and former music industry executive. With his strong background in the financial services industry, Chuck recognized that there was a better way to make short-term loans than the typical payday loan (flat-fee for holding a post-dated check for a fixed period). The business model was simple — offer customers a signature loan (no check or other collateral, simple interest; the interest accrues daily and does not compound).
During a recent interview with Favazz, DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen was asked if he is concerned about CRÜE frontman Vince Neil seemingly being out of shape and not being ready to hit the road as part of “The Stadium Tour.” While answering the question, Collen revealed that the band is planning to expand the tour outside of North America.
He responded: “No. I talk to [CRÜE bassist] Nikki Sixx all the time. We’re friends. And I’ve known Vince forever. He’s gonna be part of our team. The way I look at this whole thing… We wanna take this tour to the rest of the world — in Europe, Australia, Japan, all over the place, South America — so it’s really important that everyone is part of the team. And we’re inspired. Me and Joe [Elliott, DEF LEPPARD singer] — actually, all the guys — we’re on the phone, and we start rehearsing in about a week.”
“So, no. I think that MÖTLEY CRÜE are gonna be part of that team, as are [support acts] POISON and Joan Jett. We all stand as one.
“The great thing, when you go out on tour with KISS, it’s all about the show; it’s not about trying to upstage anyone or do that,” he continued. “Yeah, you can have a bit of that going on, but then you live and die by the show, and you wanna make that great. And that’s a great lesson we’ve learned from KISS, and we apply that.
“So, no. I can’t wait till we get out there. And hopefully Vince will be working out. We’ve got a trainer coming out. Yeah, it’s gonna be really cool.”
