VINCE NEIL: "MUSICIANS, DON'T GET IN THE MUSIC BIZ!"

Vince Neil
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil says the music business has changed exponentially since his band first started dishing out hair metal in the '80s.

What's his advice for upcoming musicians? "Don't get in the business," he laughed, speaking with NewsTimes.com. "It's tough. There [are] so many different outlets for music now. Thirty years ago you had MTV; everybody watched MTV and everybody saw your video. There was one place to go; now there [are] thousands of places to go. It's a lot tougher. There [are] more eyes out there; it's just harder to get everybody to look at you at the same time."

Neil added that very little is secret in today's music industry, and fans have a much more intimate relationship with their favorite rock personalities thanks to social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook: "I think with all the social media everybody pretty much knows everything. What you're doing and where you've been and where you're going. It's kind of hard to be secretive anymore."
