The legendary Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars said he wants to release a solo album in April 2020. He has been recording in the past four years in Nashville, TN, with producer Michael Wagener, that worked with Ozzy Osbourne, Accept and Skid Row at Blackbird Studio.
“No one will ever stand in the way of my solo record. Ever. Watch for it in April. 2020.”
“[It’s] not like today’s music, which to me is pretty much pop-metal and more growly guys. It’s all cool and it’s all good, and I’m just searching for something that’s just a little different than that.
“I [also] don’t want to be living in ’85. It’s hard to reinvent yourself, but that’s what I’m doing now. I’m trying to reinvent the way that I approach music writing. I’ve got a lot of crap, and I’ve got a lot of good stuff too.”
Mötley Crüe is back on the road in 2020 and according to Rolling Stone they will tour with Def Leppard and Poison. The band announced the comeback tour exploding the contracted they signed in 2015 that said that they wouldn’t tour again. Their last live performance was December 31 of that year in Los Angeles.
Mötley Crüe played 158 shows on their 2014-15 Final Tour. In 2021, the band completes 40 years.
