As Reported by Associated Press:

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil yelled obscenities and walked off a nightclub stage when fans couldn't sing the lyrics to one of his songs, the club manager said.

Jim Turczynski, manager of Levelz nightclub, said Neil became angry shortly after midnight Thursday while performing here with a backup band during his solo tour.

Neil played a few Motley Crue songs and then started playing one of his own compositions. When the crowd of about 250 didn't know the lyrics, "He said the crowd was a bunch of losers, among other things," Turczynski said. "Then he got on his bus and just left."

Turczynski said Neil was on stage for less than 10 minutes. He said the crowd was upset but did not become violent.

Neil's manager, Burt Stein, wasn't immediately available for comment Friday.

The club was refunding the $25 ticket price. Turczynski said it cost about $12,000 to hire Neil and was unsure whether the club would get the full amount back.

Neil is wanted on a misdemeanor battery warrant for allegedly punching a record producer last April outside a nightclub in West Hollywood, Calif. A warrant for his arrest was issued Aug. 7. If convicted, he could face a maximum of six months in jail and a $2,000 fine.

Stein has called the punching allegation ridiculous and said the 41-year-old singer would be "completely exonerated."
