The esteemed founder of Sumerian Records, Ash Avildsen, recently posted a few fresh images featuring Mick Mars, which seem to have been captured at the MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist’s residence in Nashville, Tennessee.
Avildsen posted the pictures on Tuesday (May 9), adding the following: “landed on mars. It’s as real as it gets. #teammick #mickmars #motleycrue #livinglegend”.
It is uncertain whether Avildsen has discussed with Mars the potential release of Mick‘s highly anticipated solo project via his record label.
Last month, 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.
