EXPOSEDVince Neil (Warner Bros. 45260)If the name Vince Neil doesn't ring any bells, it's probably because the former Motley Crue front man was usually overshadowed by the band's bassist, the charismatic and controversial Nikki Sixx. Now that he's on his own, you might think Neil would want to keep his first solo album focused squarely on himself. Yet not only does "Exposed" allow guitarist Steve Stevens to steal the spotlight from time to time, but the music is the better for it. Why? In part because Stevens' solos are stunningly original, but mostly because he and Neil share the same goal -- to make these songs as exciting as possible.

When Motley Crue reunited in 2004 following a four-year hiatus — five years for drummer Tommy Lee, who'd gone solo in 1999 — few believed the group would stick together for much longer than one last, valedictory, squeeze-it-for-all-it's-worth tour. Soon enough, the members would be fighting, pulling temper tantrums, wanting to flee to solo projects, and the bad press would push the band into just another "Behind the Music" episode. Or so the conventional wisdom went. But seven years later, the Crue is still together.

And even though they haven't been the easiest of partings -- "We're actually in litigation," he says of his split with the Crue -- Neil couldn't be happier with the way things are going.

Rock 'n' roll has provided an important service throughout its relatively brief history: getting hot dates for ugly guys. Sure, Elvis Presley arrived matinee-idol ready, but Paul McCartney was the only truly "cute" Beatle, and Beastie-men such as Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, the members of Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, the members of Kiss (with or without makeup), David Lee Roth and Meat Loaf became studs under rock's hot spotlight. So it is that we've reached another milestone in rock's prolonged death march: Ozzy Osbourne got plastic surgery.

Who's Gone Mad?In your July 22 editorial, "Have Clinton's Critics Gone Mad?", in reference to the reaction of President Clinton's new policy on gays in the military, I think it is you who have gone mad.Why should you expect gays and lesbians, who are taxpaying Americans, to be satisfied by seeing members of their community continue to face discrimination in the work place? The issue of gays in the military is really one of equality and justice.President Clinton's new policy still relegates lesbians and gays to second-class citizenship by treating us as less equal and under a different standard of justice.
