Rocker Vince Neil is ready to serve his 15-day jail term for a driving under the influence (DUI) conviction, insisting he's learned his lesson for his "mistake".

However, Neil insists there's no point in forcing addicts to visit a medical center, because it won't help them curb drinking and drug-takin...
