Didn't know he killed someone 20 years ago, while driving drunk. Throw him in jail for life.

.23 Jerry - YOU need to get your facts straight about a few things. Razzle may have gotten into the car with Vince while being slightly impaired himself, but this does not excuse the fact that Vince was behind the wheel and decided to floor it on a wet road. Razzle had no idea how much of an alcoholic drug addict Vince was, and therefore had no idea what kind of car ride he was in for. Vince's blood alcohol level was .17 and far over the limit. And as far as Hanoi Rocks sucking? You are an idiot. To say they were only popular in Japan is a statement that could only be made by a misinformed, narrow minded moron. If it wasn't for Hanoi Rocks there would be no Guns n Roses or half the other bands that came about in that era. Why don't you go look that up, and see who Axl credits as his biggest influence.



Also, I have to point out all of the other errors I keep seeing in these posts. First off the crash that killed Razzle was in December 1984 (not 10 years ago) and the girl in the other car was not killed, she was however very seriously injured.



And Razzle (Nicholas Dingley) was not the lead singer for Hanoi Rocks, he was in fact their drummer. Their singer is Michael Monroe who is still very much alive and performing festivals throughout the world as we speak. Vince never apologized to Michael or the other band members for the death of Razzle either. He got 30 days jail time (out in 15 for good behavior according to some sources) and a slap on the wrist. And for those who saw the Motley Crue do***entary where Vince says "his buddy died in his arms that night" that statement is inaccurate also. Vince met Razzle in London and invited him to California to party with the band. Hanoi Rocks had just started touring in the US and when their touch reached LA he ended up at Vince's house. (Btw, those Hanoi shows sold out in less than 20 mins.. hmm really? Not popular eh Jerry? Think again!) It was his second time hanging out with Vince, so he had no idea what a drunk he was. They were hardly "buddies" by any stretch of the imagination.



Vince admitted he got off lightly by writing a check for approx $2.5 million. He knows he should have served time for what he did... he admits that himself.



I don't have a problem with people wanting to be drunk... knock your socks off if that's what does it for you. But the fact that he already killed one and seriously injured 2 others and has not learned his lesson is proof that his punishment was not nearly severe enough. He has more than enough money to have a personal driver. He is in dire need of rehab again, even though he claims they don't work.



This is a very sad thing to read. I am a fan of both Crue (musically) and Hanoi, and to read that Vince is driving drunk again saddens me very much. He needs a serious wake up call... and giving him 30 days is not enough. If God forbid he kills someone else (or injures another) it will bring the end for the crue... so all you crue heads reading this need to stop sticking up for him and instead give him the wake up call he needs. The court system needs to take away his license immediately.



RIP Razzle...
And you're a million miles away
I'll never get a chance to hold you
So my message is the wind
I pray that it gets through to you

Vince, you are so ****ing STUPID. I love Motley Crue but this man is making it incredibly hard to be a fan when he keeps doing stupid **** like this!



For the record, he didn't kill Hanoi Rocks' singer. He killed their drummer, Razzle, and two others were brain damaged in the wreck, not killed.

If you don't like your dirty laundry aired for all the world to see, then DO NOT become a celebrity who survives off the public eye to stay that way. Tough.

Once a drunken, murdering sh*tbag, always a drunken, murdering sh*tbag. They should've locked him up & tossed the key when he murdered Razzle.
