Vince Neil Bio:

Vince 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 in‐ cluding “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, estab‐ lishing 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 mil‐ lion 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. Addi‐ tionally, 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 surpris‐ es…The music is exciting. It’s good, fun, nasty, raw energy and great songs.” Presently, Neil remains primarily occupied answering the call to his immense following with shows interna‐ tionally in conjunction with the culmination of his fourth solo album. Besides being an International Superstar, Neil is an accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist. He manages to own several restaurants and his own brand of both tequila and vodka. Certainly not least, his efforts have rallied millions of dollars for a Non‐profit organization, The Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation, in tribute to the unfortunate loss of his daugh‐ ter to cancer in 1995. In January of 2017 Vince Neil back in the TV spotlight once again, as a contestant on NBC’s The Celebrity Ap‐ prentice, featuring new host Arnold Schwarzenegger.




Lita Ford Bio:

Lita Ford’s career began in 1975 as a founding member and guitarist of the groundbreaking all female group the Runaways. The groups hard rock / punk edge spawned hits like “Cherry Bomb” and “Queens of Noise”. Lita and the Runaways proved their timelessness in 2014 when “Cherry Bomb” was featured in the critically acclaimed Marvel / Disney Studios hit movie “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and was nominated for a Grammy Award.

In 1983 Lita launched her carrier as a solo artist with her début album “Out For Blood” establishing her as the premier female performer in rock and Heavy Metal. Lita quickly followed up in 1984 with the release of “Dancin’ on the Edge” which earned her a Grammy nomination in the Best Female Rock Vocal Performance category. The album produced the world charting single “Fire In My Heart” and the U.S. Billboard top 50 charting hit “Gotta Let Go”. The song, along with the video being in MTV’s top rotation began to make Ford a household name and face.

2018 celebrated the 30th anniversary of the self-titled multi platinum “Lita” album. Released on February 2nd 1988 the “Lita” album boasted four charting hit singles. “Back to the Cave”, “Falling In and Out of Love” (co written with Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx) along with the world wide mega hits “Kiss me Deadly”, nominated for the MTV Video Music Awards Best Female Video of the year and the certified gold ballad single “Close my Eyes Forever” featuring Ozzy Osbourne, which remained in the Billboard top 10 for 25 weeks.

The “Lita” album solidified Ford as one of the most influential female performers in the music industry and earning her the title “Queen of Metal”. Ford released three more studio albums following “Lita”. Stiletto, “Dangerous Curves” and “Black”. These albums produced the radio and video hits “Hungry”,“Playin’ with Fire” and “Shot of Poison” again nominating her for a Grammy.

In 1995 Lita Ford took a sabbatical from the industry to raise a family. In 2008 Ford answered the calling of her fans and after thirteen years triumphantly returned to the stage. The excitement generated by Ford’s return quickly showed the world that the Queen was back. Since then Lita continues to tour at a non-stop pace, headlining major events worldwide and throughout the United States.

Alongside her live performances Lita has followed up with two new studio albums. “Living Like A Runaway” and “Time Capsule”. With Ford’s long awaited return to the scene, also came the long awaited opportunity by the industry to finally recognize Lita Ford for forever changing the roll of women in music. 2014 saw two of these accolades. At the 50th anniversary of the world famous Whiskey A Go Go Ford was presented with the Guitar Player Lifetime Achievement Award. And in the same year the prestigious Guitar Player Magazine awarded her the Guitar Player Certified Legend Award and inducted her in to the Guitar Player Hall of Fame.

Besides her renown musical career Lita has also appeared in numerous movie, television and media rolls. In 1991 She portrayed the roll of the Hitchhiker in the fantasy/thriller “Highway To Hell” starring Chad Lowe. On television Ford has guested on shows such as Fox’s Herman’s Head, Food Networks Chopped and Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush. Ford was also featured along with Bruce Springsteen’s legendary E Street band saxophonist Clarence Clemons as band members of The Howie Mandel Show’s Studio One Band. In 2009 Lita was cast to voice the roll of Rima for the action adventure video game Brutal Legend.

In 2016 Ford released her autobiography “Living Like A Runaway: A Memoir”. The books insight and vivid truthfulness so captured audiences that it quickly became a national best seller and awarded 4.7 stars out of 5 by Amazon. The book reached such critical acclaim that Lita was presented the “Outstanding Writer” award in 2017 by the Producers Choice Honors.

At 2017’s Fifth Annual She Rocks Awards Lita was chosen as the recipient of the coveted Icon Award. That evening she was also officially bestowed the title of The First Lady of Rock Guitar by Marshall Amplification and Guitar Player Magazine. Laura B. Whitmore, founder of the WiMN and producer of the She Rocks Awards, commented: "Whether as a solo artist, band member, or guitar shredder, Lita Ford is a true pioneer who has broken down barriers and inspires today's female guitarists. I am excited to honor her with an award that really sums up the essence of Lita Ford.

Ford continues to encourage and inspire aspiring musicians by teaching and mentoring through here work with Rock and Roll Fantasy Camps.

2018 has seen Lita and her long time band mates Patrick Kennison (Guitar), Marty O’Brien (Bass) and Bobby Rock (Drums) continuing to tour at her normal feverish pace. The year has also seen her taking on new endeavors and expanding the Lita Ford universe. In May of 2018 Lita launched Lita Ford Guitars. The company, in conjunction with Cara Guitars offers hand worked replicas of Lita’s iconic instruments. These classic replicas are also available through the newly formed “Lita Ford Ultimate VIP Concert Experience” meet and greet packages.

Since the start of 2018 Lita has been more present than ever in major media and publications. Filming 24 episodes of AXS TV’s hit series “Top 10 Revealed”, Nat Geo TV’s “Decades Remixed” and a top BBC series focusing on iconic musicians playing styles and their gear. Along with appearances in both the Suzi Quatro and Girls school documentaries. Lita also contributed to two upcoming major release books “The History of Hard Rock” by Tom Beaujour and “No Encore” by Drew Fortune. The year finished out with Lita again being bestowed three prestigious honors.
