Mick Mars, the guitarist for Motley Crue, is making headlines once again. This time, an alleged audio file from his in-ear monitor has surfaced on the internet. The file features his performances on “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Primal Scream,” and “Kickstart My Heart,” accompanied by a click track, and was allegedly recorded during last year’s “Stadium Tour.” You can listen to the audio below.
These developments come after Mars filed a lawsuit against Motley Crue, accusing bassist Nikki Sixx of duping him into believing he had lost cognitive abilities and guitar skills. Mars also claims that the band has been using backing tracks during live performances, which he says have reduced his earnings share from 25% to 5%. Furthermore, he alleges that the band held a full meeting during which they decided to “unilaterally” exclude him from the group.
Mick’s allegations have been met with shock and disbelief from Motley Crue fans. However, it’s important to note that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. We’ll have to wait and see how the lawsuit unfolds.
Regardless of the outcome, this situation highlights the importance of open communication and transparency in any partnership, including in the music industry. It’s essential for all parties involved to be aware of their roles and responsibilities, as well as any changes that may impact their earnings or status within the group. Hopefully, this situation will serve as a reminder for musicians and other professionals to keep the lines of communication open and honest at all times.
