Vince Neil Still Haunted By 1984 Car Smash

Rocker VINCE NEIL is still haunted by the car crash in which pal RAZZLE was killed and he confesses the prison term he served for his part in the accident wasn't tough enough.

The MOTLEY CRUE star spent 30 days in jail and was fined $2.5 million (GBP1.3 million) for driving drunk in the 1984 car crash, which cost his passenger, HANOI ROCKS star Razzle his life.

But he insists he should have been more severely punished, and now feels he literally got away with murder.

He tells BLENDER magazine, "I wrote a $2.5 million cheque for vehicular manslaughter when Razzle died.

"I should have gone to prison. I definitely deserved to go to prison. But I did 30 days in jail and got laid and drank beer, because that's the power of cash. That's f**ked up.

"It's changed now. But you're 20-years-old and you've got a million dollars in your pocket and drugs and drink and women and fame and there are lawyers to protect you. We just thought we could do anything."

Correction to article (yeah, way after the fact, but I just found it). Neil was sentenced to 30 days in jail of which he only served 19 days, time off for good behavior. Also, Razzle shouldn't be called his pal. He met him at a show in Europe, and told Razzle to look him up when in LA. That could at best could be called aquaintances. Although he served his sentence, and he says he feels really bad about what he did, he never apologized to Razzle's bandmates, who where friends with Razzle. Tomorrow is the 25th anniversary of Razzle's death. R.I.P. Razzle.
