Vince Neil Net Worth

As a professional and worldwide famous lead vocalist of Motley Crue, Vince Neil managed to accumulate an impressive fortune with a net worth in 2019 of 50 million dollars. Of course, this is all related to his activity in the music industry, but Neil has a couple of business ventures, too.

The band Motley Crue sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, which made them one of the best-selling bands of all time. Vince Neil joined this band back in the 1980s when their first album together was released. ‘Too Fast for Love’ proved to be a success, while a couple of singles on that record, like ‘Dr. FeelGood’ or ‘Theatre of pain’, reached the first places on several US billboard charts.

After the success with Motley Crue, Vince Neil decided in 1992 it is time to venture on his own. He got a deal with Warner Brothers and ultimately released his first solo album in 1992. After this success, his fortune was significantly increased by the rapidity with which the album was sold. In 1995, he released another album under the patronage of Dust Brothers, yet this hadn’t the success it was predicted. As a result, Neil’s contract with them was voided.

Vince Neil came back to his former band and released with Motley Crue the 1997 album, ‘Generation Swine’. The sales were good and even got the group some prestigious nominations throughout the year. In the following years, he released another solo album, ‘Tattoos and Tequila’, and he appeared on a cover of a Japanese rock band.

Besides the revenue from his musical skills, Vince Neil has other income sources, too. He has a club named ‘Bar One’, and a restaurant in West Palm Beach called ‘Dr. Feelgood’s Bar and Grill’. Both businesses added significant value to Neil’s overall fortune.

Moreover, Vince Neil became chief executive and chairman of the Rock Star Investment Group. Also, he bought ownership of the Arena Football League’s Jacksonville Sharks and was shortly involved in the Las Vegas Outlaws.

He has several contributions to filmography, too. He wrote and performed the soundtracks of a couple of tv shows, such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, Born to be wild, Hot Tub time machine, Friday Night Lights, or High Chaparral. He composed the official soundtracks of The Surreal Life, Behind the Music, and Motley Crue’s documentary. And, of course, Vince Neil had several appearances in distinct tv shows and tv documentaries. He can be seen in Skum Rocks, The Aviators, That Metal Show, Ghost Adventures, Bones, LA Ink, Rome is burning, Inside Out, or The Surreal Life.

Another revenue source for Vince Neil is his social media accounts. He is active on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with a large pool of followers. It adds a nice income to his fortune, too.
