Tommy Lee: Mick Mars Not Jazzed On Touring Any More
Not that he doesn’t want to tour, it’s just he can’t, and wants Mötley Crüe to start slowing down.
This, according to Tommy Lee.
“The farewell tour is next. This will be it,” he says.
Sure. That’s until someone needs more cash.
“Our guitar player, Mick, he has a spinal disease that’s slowly fusing his vertebrae together. It’s one of those things that’s treatable, but not curable,” says Tommy.
“So it’s just progressively getting really worse and it’s painful for him, so he doesn’t wanna tour much longer. I can’t say I blame him… The last thing we ever wanna do is go out running on two cylinders with some hired guy playing guitar; that’s just whack.
“So we wanna go out with one big hurrah with the original guys and be done with it.”
He added: “That’s such a bad look when bands are still playing the fucking fairgrounds — those county-fair shows — and it’s just like two of the original guys, or one original guy, and the rest, no one knows who they are. We don’t wanna do that.”
