Vince Neil breaks leg during Crue concert

ATLANTA - Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil is recovering from a leg injury after slipping off stage during a performance.

The band was about five songs into the concert Friday night when Neil leaned over to sing along with the audience and slipped off stage, said police spokeswoman Sylvia Abernathy.

"I just felt something snap in my leg," Neil wrote on the band's Web site. "I just couldn't go on."

The band was forced to end the concert early. Neil was treated at Piedmont Hospital and released Saturday, hospital spokeswoman Diana Lewis said.

The band said on its Web site that Neil partially tore part of his calf muscle. He planned to perform on Sunday night in Memphis, Tenn., and no shows were being canceled, the band said on its Web site.

The 1980's glam band recently reunited after six years apart. Band members said they intended to return to Atlanta for a makeup show.
Boy, would I love to see video of that!

I just picture that scene in Rock Star where Marky Mark takes that tumble on stage.

Reading the article, he didn't break his leg. He tore his calf muscle.

Man, that sounds like it would hurt worse than breaking your leg.

The initial headline said "break". That's what I copied into the thread title.

I sure he gave out a Primal Scream when he fell. Dr Feelgood should make him feel better though. Oh well, Same Old Situation.

I actually saw these guys last night. Vince was walking around with a cane. He asked us if it was ok. Nobody seemed to object. Anyway, great show. Strippers, flame-eating little people, fireworks, explosions, a whole claymation motley crue movie on the jumbo screens, breasts-a-flashing all under a big circus tent. Oh yeah, they played some songs too...

shout at the devil
too fast for love
looks that kill
live wire
red hot
louder than hell
on with the show
10 seconds to love
same ol' situation
kickstart my heart
dr. feelgood
home sweet home
glitter
sick love song
without you
anarchy in the u.k.

Not necessarily in that order, but you get the idea.
