Mick Mars is shedding light on the MÖTLEY CRÜE lawsuit, revealing behind-the-scenes details.
Leaked court documents suggest Mars is characterizing his former bandmates as aspiring rock musicians and “amateur time” Satanists who overly embraced the CRÜE’s ‘demonic’ stage persona when drugs took hold of band leader Nikki Sixx. Mars argues that the band’s Devil-worshipping image, coupled with the use of ‘backing tracks’ during concerts and the inclusion of ‘ghost performers’ on studio albums, contributed to the downfall of the Platinum-selling Hollywood glam metal act after their massive success in the eighties.
However, the biggest problem for the 72-year-old guitar legend is that the CRÜE simply ‘stopped creating’, and this is what he feels put a nail in the coffin of the band he named himself and helped to create the most iconic guitar riffs and solos in heavy metal history.
For the 72-year-old guitar legend, the primary issue lies in the CRÜE’s cessation of creative efforts. He contends that this lack of creative output, coupled with the reliance on “ghost performers” and AI technology, is evidence of him being “gaslighted.” This revelation has fueled his determination to fight against what he perceives as an injustice, especially since the band has struggled to release a new studio album in the past 15 years. Mars, gearing up for the release of his debut solo album, is resolute in not going down without a fight.
