Rock band Motley Crue is calling it quits on Dec. 31, after almost 35 years of performing together, and they're going out on their own terms, singer Vince Neil told CNBC.
"We didn't want to be one of those bands that you go see like your favorite band 10 years later and there's maybe one guy in the band and you're playing clubs and state fairs," Neil said in an interview with "Closing Bell" Wednesday.
"We don't want to be remembered as that. We want to be remembered as going out on top."
In fact, the group signed a contract that they would never perform together again.
"We did that because we knew everybody would go, 'Ah they'll be back in five or six years.' And the truth is we're not," drummer Tommy Lee said.
