MICK MARS Says There Is Still A Chance For Him To Return To MÖTLEY CRÜE

Mick Mars, the renowned guitarist of MÖTLEY CRÜE, recently delved into the intricacies of his ongoing legal battle with the iconic hard rock band during a candid interview on Riff X‘s “Metal XS.” Mars expressed a sense of acceptance regarding the situation, acknowledging that such disputes are not uncommon in the music industry.

Discussing his current standing with MÖTLEY CRÜE, Mars clarified that while he has retired from touring due to health reasons, he remains open to collaborations such as new songs, short tours, or residencies. However, he emphasized that the intense touring lifestyle has become increasingly challenging for him, especially given his health condition, ankylosing spondylitis.

In a separate interview with Audacy Check In, Mars reflected on the decades-long delay in releasing his debut solo album, attributing it to MÖTLEY CRÜE’s status as his top priority. With his retirement, Mars now finds himself exploring his artistic expression, free from the constraints of band obligations. He expressed a willingness to collaborate with MÖTLEY CRÜE again if the opportunity arises but is currently focused on crafting music that reflects his vision and journey.

Mars’s solo venture, “The Other Side Of Mars,” marks a significant milestone in his career, released under his independent label 1313, LLC, in partnership with MRI. Despite his retirement from touring, Mars remains a vital part of MÖTLEY CRÜE as a band member, with John 5 stepping in for live performances.

However, tensions escalated post-retirement, leading Mars to initiate legal proceedings against MÖTLEY CRÜE in Los Angeles County’s Superior Court. Allegations include attempts by the remaining band members to diminish his stake in the group’s corporation and assets following his retirement announcement. The legal dispute underscores the complexities of band dynamics and individual rights within the music industry’s legal framework.
