Motley Crue Replace Original Member In Studio

The relationship between Mick Mars and Mötley Crue continues to become bitter. Meanwhile, Nikki Sixx has shared new photos of himself, guitarist John 5, and the band’s drummer Tommy Lee in what appears to be a jam session of sorts, adding that the band is going to record a few songs “off the floor” next week and “see where it goes.”

As it seems, Crue is writing new music and Nikki seems to hint that John 5’s status has been upgraded from that of a touring member.   There are many uncertainties with the band right now — such as the status of both Mick Mars and John 5 within the band — but new music coming from Motley Crue seems to be coming. In a follow-up tweet posted after the photo, Nikki wrote:

“We are writing. The creative process of songwriting has always been the heartbeat of our band. We’re gonna go in the big studio next week and record a few off the floor and see where it goes. We don’t have a definitive plan at this point. Just letting the songs guide us.”

Although Nikki Sixx doesn’t mention Motley Crue by name, the context of the sentence in which the word “band” is mentioned makes it safe to assume that the new stuff might well come under the Motley label.

Tommy Lee has also recently posted a picture of the jamming session and sparked speculation by writing: “New Crue?”

It is barely over a week since Mick Mars dropped his bombastic lawsuit. Mars filed a lawsuit against his Motley Crue bandmates, alleging the band is screwing him over financially. In the lawsuit as reported by TMZ, Mars claimed that he originally told Crue that he is still available to record with the band and to do limited performances. Instead, Mars said the band instead cut his profits down from 25 percent to 5 percent after announcing his retirement from the road.

He further claimed that “the band’s lawyers made him feel like he should be grateful for even that small cut, because they didn’t feel they owed him anything at all” and that Mötley Crüe unilaterally decided to “remove” him from the band.

Furthermore, Mars came up with bold claims about bassist Nikki Sixx about “gaslighting” him about getting worse at guitar despite Sixx not “playing a single note on bass” throughout the band’s original farewell tour. The lawsuit seeks to allow Mars to have a look at the band’s financials to see if he’s truly getting ripped off.
