The Mötley Crüe vocalist Vince Neil listed in an interview AXS TV (Transcribed by Rock and Roll Garage) the albums he would like to take to a desert island. The singer is currently touring with Mötley Crüe in the United States alongside Def Leppard and Alice Cooper.
He is one of the co-founders of the Glam Metal group and only wasn’t the vocalist of their self-titled album released in 1994, which was recorded with John Corabi.
“If I was stranded on an island with just a tape deck or something, my five albums I would take with me… Number one, ‘Back In Black’ by AC/DC, ’cause there’s nothing but hits on that record. And I love AC/DC. We’ve toured with ’em before, and they’re great guys. They’re a lot of fun. And I like remembering those memories,” Vince Neil said.
Number two, I would take Aerosmith ‘Rocks’. The ‘Rocks’ album has a lot of great hits on it. A lot of people don’t know that album very well, but I listen to it all the time. I remember going surfing down the beach where I lived in California and listening to that album all the way to the beach and all the way back,” Vince Neil said.
“Number three would be ‘Cosmo’s Factory’ [by] Creedence Clearwater Revival. I love Creedence; I always have. My dad turned me on to ’em, and I love those guys. John Fogerty’s a great singer and they’re a lot of fun to listen to,” Vince Neil said.
“And let’s see. [Number] four. I would take one of the Journey albums. Any one of them is… they’re all amazing. I mean, Journey never put out a bad album, so I would take any one of those,” Vince Neil said.
“I would take the Beach Boys’ ‘Endless Summer’, ’cause if I’m laying on the beach somewhere by myself, I’m gonna listen to ‘Endless Summer’,” Vince Neil said.
