Dee Snider Reacts To Vince Neil’s Onstage Teleprompter
Twisted Sister icon Dee Snider shared a post to express his ideas about Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil and one of his stage incidents on his official Twitter account. The famous musician also responded to the recent news about Neil by highlighting his life’s details.
Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard’s co-headlining The Stadium Tour, which started on June 16, 2022, in Cumberland, was on the headlines with almost every show they performed along with the guests, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Even though their dedicated fans who waited for years and survived a global pandemic to watch them live were excited and delighted, some situations lead to concerns and doubts.
One of them was about the drummer Tommy Lee when they learned that the musician broke four ribs shortly before the tour dates began. However, Lee confronted them, saying that he would continue no matter what the doctors told him, and he revealed that Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos would accompany him for help. Then, in the most recent one, Neil was the main character after fans saw him using a teleprompter during their concert in St. Louis, Missouri, on July 5.
Some people thought it was usual, while others claimed that the frontman didn’t know or remember the songs. Thus, his bandmate and bassist Nikki Sixx defended him and said Neil worked hard on his vocals and lyrics. Following Riki Rachtman’s support of the singer, Dee Snider stated that most bands were using it, and everyone should focus on enjoying the moment. However, Snider added that he didn’t need a teleprompter, and Neil had to because of his longtime drug and alcohol usage.
Here’s what Rachtman wrote:
“So Mötley Crüe used a teleprompter. Really who cares? Did you have fun at the show? That’s what matters. A lot of bands have used teleprompters. Stop looking for reasons to criticize. Recorded vocals an artist not caring is bad Teleprompters? Who cares!”
“True that! Most bands are using teleprompters. Not me, but I didn’t kill a lot of my brain cells with drink and drugs (Not a criticism. More of an explanation). Stop being so damn critical and enjoy seeing the people you love on stage! Now lip-synching is another story!”
