Offstage, Mötley Crüe leader Vince Neil is a "beach guy," he tells New York's Jessica Pressler, who interviewed him in his trailer before a recent concert for a delightful piece in this week's magazine. "When I'm not onstage, I'm usually just in shorts, and I like to hang out at the pool and do normal stuff." So how, then, does he make the drastic nightly transformation from Vince Neil, beach guy, to Vince Neil, rock star? Pressler managed to snap this photo of the singer's dressing table, giving us a rare look at Neil's secret preshow routine. Pictured: Kleenex, cotton swabs, cologne, deodorant, hairspray, a nail file, a nail clipper, VocalZone lozenges ("Oh yeah. Absolutely, I have to suck on these lozenges before the show"), eyeliner, Vaseline, a belt, gloves, fresh socks, and a pair of scissors ("The scissor is to cut his T-shirt, usually a Mötley Crüe shirt — he cuts it himself," his publicist tells us). Don't try this at home.
