MÖTLEY CRÜE Guitarist Says It’s ‘Unlikely’ Band Will Perform New Material On Upcoming Tour

On March 22, Martell of WeLoveMetal.com conducted an interview with MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

WeLoveMetal.com: The big announcement right now is two of the biggest rock bands in the world taking the stage together. MÖTLEY and KISS together — you must be pretty excited about it.

Mick: Oh yeah, yeah. We played with them once, more than one time, but on a short tour with them, and it was crazy then. And it’s going to be way over the top this time.

WeLoveMetal.com: Are some of the elements from the Vegas shows going to be in there?

Mick: We haven’t really discussed everything. I know that Tommy [Lee, drums] will most likely have the [360-degree drum roller coaster] with him, but as far as the theme and what we’re going to have we really have yet to work on that. We’re just getting ready for our Europe tour, then we come back and hit the road with KISS, so we have to think of two things at once. Production’s going to be different in Europe than here, so it’s like doing two at once.

WeLoveMetal.com: We’re all talking of Nikki‘s [Sixx, bass] mention of you guys in the studio. How’s it going?

Mick: Great. Pretty good. We’re getting some really good stuff out. We’re coming up with some ideas and stuff. We’re just running stuff by the guys and seeing what they think. We’re going to put it in the MÖTLEY machine and see what comes out. That’s how we’ve always done it.

WeLoveMetal.com: Are we going to hear any of this new music when you are out this time?

Mick: It’s not very likely. I don’t want to say “no” for sure, but it’s pretty unlikely. We’re trying to put together something that’s really amazing so I don’t want to give away a lot. It could be a single or an EP or it could be a full album. Whatever it is, we’ll try to give the best we’ve really recorded for a long time. It’s going to be like a “Dr. Feelgood”… that kind of quality. I don’t mean like stepping back into the ’80s. It will be very modern. It will just be good quality music.
