MOTLEY CRUE fans are excited to have John 5 as the band’s new guitarist after Mick mars announced his retirement from touring.
With this announcement, CRUE fans took to social media and requested the band to also announce a new singer, following fans complaining about Vince Neil’s average to bad performance every night on ‘The Stadium Tour’.
Here’s what the fans said:
“They also need a new good singer”
“Tell you what. Seen the stadium tour in Edmonton Alberta. I’ve seen Crüe 6 times and Vince was a total disappointment.”
“Get a new singer”
“They should hire a singer too….”
“How bout a new singer too w real Pipes?”
“Now if they could only get a good vocalist”
“He and Nikki are tight this is no surprise, but my complaint with this tour was Vince..he needs to be replaced”
“Huge crue fan since the 80s. Doesn’t matter anymore who plays the music. .vince is done. They sound lousy. It is what it is.”
“They should just STOP!! Vince Neil sounds terrible. Do as LED ZEPPELIN did. Lose a member and JUST STOP. I have always rocked out to their music.”
John 5 entry to the CRUE was made official by the band in a new statement, saying:
“While change is never easy, we accept Mick‘s decision to retire from the band due to the challenges with his health. We have watched Mick manage his Ankylosing Spondylitis for decades and he has always managed it with utmost courage and grace.”
“To say ‘enough is enough’ is the ultimate act of courage. Mick‘s sound helped define MÖTLEY CRÜE from the minute he plugged in his guitar at our very first rehearsal togther. The rest, as they say, is history. We’ll continue to honor his musical legacy.
“We will carry out Mick‘s wish and continue to tour the world as planned in 2023. No doubt will it take an absolutely outstanding musician to fill Mick‘s shoes so we are grateful that our good friend, John 5 has agreed to come on board and join us moving forward. We’ll see all you Crüeheads out on the road!”
