Mick Mars Puts John Corabi Ahead Of Vince Neil As He Shares His Favorite Mötley Crüe Album

Mick Mars, the erstwhile guitarist for Mötley Crüe, recently revealed his musical preferences, notably excluding projects involving Vince Neil. Speaking to Artists On Record, Mars was quizzed about his favorite works from Mötley Crüe’s discography. He didn’t specify a particular album but highlighted the one featuring John Corabi as the frontman. Mars expressed:

“The album with John Corabi was a moment where I felt we truly hit our stride, capturing something special for that era. Had we been a fresh band then, I believe it would have made a monumental impact. Perhaps changing our name might have even catapulted it to greater heights. It’s gratifying to see it gaining recognition now, proving we were ahead of our time.”

Mars parted ways with Mötley Crüe in 2022 due to health reasons, making way for John 5 as his successor. Despite this transition, Mars harbored no ill will towards John 5 and viewed his departure as a new beginning rather than an end. In a conversation with FOX17, Mars shared insights into his artistic philosophy:

“Today’s music often lacks diversity. I aimed to craft songs that transport listeners, each track painting a different scene or ‘music scape.’ This approach was to demonstrate my versatility beyond being stereotyped. Freedom in creativity means exploring endless possibilities rather than confining oneself to a genre box.”

Following the release of his debut solo album ‘The Other Side Of Mars’ on February 23, Mars is not resting on his laurels. He’s already preparing for his next project, promising a slight deviation in sound from his previous work, indicating his continuous evolution as an artist.
