During one of their shows, he was spotted by members of Motley Crue, including Tommy Lee who was his high school friend. So he joined Motley Crue in 1981 and in his first stint remained with the band until 1992.
During this time, Vince and the rest of the Crew attained world fame with such releases as “Too Fast for Love”, their debut album, then “Shout at the Devil” (1983), and their most successful album “Dr. Feelgood” (1989), which achieved six times platinum status in the US, and three times platinum in Canada, while it was also their only album that topped the Billboard 200 chart.

Their last release was the 2008 album “Saints of Los Angeles”. They played until 2015 but went on hiatus until 2018. Since then, they have announced that the band is working on new music.
In addition to his exceptional career with one of the most popular glam/hard-rock bands, Vince has also released his own material. He has three solo albums – his debut album came out on the 27th April 1993, entitled “Exposed”, and reached No. 13 on the Billboard 200 chart. His second studio album was nowhere near the success he had with the band, as it reached only No. 139 on the Billboard 200 chart. His latest solo release was the album from 2010 entitled “Tattoos & Tequila”, which reached No. 57 on Billboard 200, No. 14 on the US Rock chart, and had its best placing on the US Indie chart, as it climbed to No. 7.
