Neil was born in Hollywood, California to Shirley (née Ortiz) and Clois “Odie” Wharton. He has Mexican ancestry on his mother’s side and Native American ancestry on his father’s. During the 1960s, his family moved around Southern California from Inglewood to Watts, before finally settling in Glendora, attending Sunflower Intermediate School and later Royal Oak High School. As well as having an interest in music while a teenager, Neil was also interested in surfing, basketball, baseball, football and wrestling.
Neil was discovered while performing with his band Rock Candy and joined Mötley Crüe in 1981. The newly-formed band was seeking a lead vocalist and were impressed by the young Vince after seeing him perform live at drummer Tommy Lee’s suggestion. Lee had known Neil in high school and thought the vocalist’s image would fit well with the new band… (from Wikipedia)
