Like Father, like Son: Motley Crue’s Vince Neil & Son Neil Wharton Perform in Las Vegas

neilwhartonA special free treat is in store this weekend for Motley Crue music lovers: Neil Wharton, 30, the son of Motley Crue’s vinceneilVince Neil, will make a rare stage appearance and sing as his dad in the Motley Crue tribute band Generation Swine.  The group will perform next to Vince Neil’s Ink tattoo parlor at O’Sheas casino in Las Vegas this Friday and Saturday, in free 7 p.m. warm-up parties for the weekend Motley Crue concerts at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel.   The Joint performance will close the historic venue until a new one is built there and opens with the same name in April. 

Wharton, who now lives in Los Angeles and works as a full-time warehouse manager, sees his dad about 10 times a year.   Normally preferring punk rock versus his dad’s pop metal style, Neil Wharton began filling his dad’s shoes when Swine frontman Rob Gebhard suffered a heart attack last summer and the band needed a replacement. 

Wharton’s main purpose in performing is to raise money for the Skylar Neil Foundation that honors his sister, who died of cancer in 1995.
