Mick Mars Claims He Was “Joking” About His Comments On “That Metal Show”
Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars said his Thanksgiving dinner will consist of “crow and humble pie” for comments he made five years ago on VH1’s “That Metal Show” about whether the band would reunite past 2015.
Mars appeared on Eddie Trunk’s That Metal Show and discussed the possibility of Motley Crue coming back after the end of what they were calling the Final Tour. “Let me put it this way,” he said. “If that happens, I will invite the world to come for free. Free.”

With the band tearing up their stupid “Cessation of Touring Agreement” of an announcement last week of them reuniting, Mars took to Instagram to clarify his comments.
“While I was clearly joking about free tickets that night on TMS, I was also deeply convinced that we would never ever be touring again,” he wrote. “I would have never expected to be facing a whole new generation of fans demanding to see us play. In fact, touring with Motley Crue comes at a weird place in time, since my solo record is almost complete after such a long time of writing and recording. But I put our fans first. Anyways, I am eating a lot of crow and humble pie this Thanksgiving for those remarks and accept that some of you see this as me being dishonest. I said what I said, and I was wrong. Peace.”

Last year, keyboardist Roddy Bottum said that he had been making new music with his FAITH NO MORE bandmates Mike Bordin and Billy Gould saying
“I will periodically go to San Francisco and make music with those guys,” he told “The Ring, The Cage, And The Stage”. “What we do is a really special, unique thing that we kind of share — especially like me and Mike Bordin and Billy… We were super young — we were, like, 18 [or] 19 years old — when we started making music, so we kind of get in the room and we have a language that speaks really loud and really clear, at least to the three of us. I mean, where it goes is questionable, but we have sort of a language that’s kind of undeniable in a really sort of family sense. And I think we all acknowledge that it’s not something that any of us wanna turn our backs on, and it’s kind of fun to do. So in the hopes of pushing things forward and making new music, we continue to do that, to get together and make new sounds and just have a dialogue about prospects and songs and where we go in the future.”
In 2017, FAITH NO MORE singer Mike Patton told Full Metal Jackie’s nationally syndicated radio show that the band was “on an extended break.” He added: “And if something happens, it’ll happen organically and naturally. But I kind of don’t think it will. I kind of feel like we’ve tipped the scales a little bit. But we’ll see. Who knows? I’ve learned my lesson not to say ‘no.’”
