A purported audio file, said to be from Mick Mars‘s in-ear monitor, has allegedly surfaced on the internet.
The track features the songs “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Primal Scream,” and “Kickstart My Heart” from an unknown date during last year’s “Stadium Tour.” Mick’s performance is distinctly audible, accompanied by a click track. You can listen to it below.
Just last week, MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars gained attention as he filed a lawsuit against the band, alleging widespread use of backing tracks during live performances and accusing bassist Nikki Sixx of manipulating him into thinking he had lost cognitive abilities and guitar skills.
In the lawsuit, Mick alleges that MÖTLEY CRÜE reduced his share of earnings from 25 percent to a mere 5 percent after revealing his decision to withdraw from touring. Additionally, he states that the group’s attorneys made him feel as if he should appreciate this minimal portion, as they believed they had no obligation to provide him with anything. Mick also asserts that a complete band gathering took place where they chose to “unilaterally” exclude him from MÖTLEY CRÜE.
Mick consistently alleged that bassist Nikki Sixx was “gaslighting” him by suggesting his guitar abilities were declining, even though Sixx didn’t “play a single note on bass” throughout a recent tour, as stated by the guitarist. Mick asserts that all of Nikki‘s segments were pre-recorded.
Swiftly responding, the hair metal legends countered with allegations regarding Mars‘ performance capabilities, and the guitarist subsequently gave an extensive interview, asserting that MÖTLEY CRÜE had wanted him out of the band since 1980s.
