Dee Snider on Vince Neil and accident that killed Nicholas ‘Razzle’ Dingley of Hanoi Rocks; ‘He’s a murderer’



Dee Snider on Vince Neil and his 1984 auto accident; ‘He’s a murderer’

Ultimate Classic Rock —  Dee Snider, a famous teetotaler, still doesn’t understand why Vince Neil wasn’t given a stiffer sentence in an alcohol-fueled crash that killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley. He apparently chalks it up to a culture that admires the out-of-control rock-star lifestyle which Snider always avoided.

“Vince Neil could go and literally kill someone in a car accident,” the long-time
Twisted Sister frontman said in a new talk with Yahoo Music. “There were two other women who were in a van who were permanently crippled from that famous car accident that killed Razzle from Hanoi Rocks. And people are cool with that. They’re like, ‘Yeah, all right! Rock ‘n’ roll!!’”

Neil crashed in December 1984 at Redondo Beach, Calif. He was later charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence after his blood alcohol level was tested at 0.17 – over the legal limit. But Neil only served half of a 30-day jail sentence, receiving five years of probation. He also had to pay $2.6 million in restitution, and perform 200 hours of community service.

“The guy didn’t do any serious jail time,” Snider added. “I’m, like, ‘Really? Really? He’s a murderer.’ I don’t get that at all.”
