Mick Mars Hits Out at Motley Crue for Using 'Britney Spears' Style Backing Tapes
Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars has criticized the band for using pre-recorded backing tapes in their live shows, comparing them to pop star Britney Spears. Speaking with Eddie Trunk (via Blabbermouth), Mars expressed his disapproval of the choice to use backing tapes on Motley Crue's upcoming farewell tour:

"That's a whole another story - that could get me in a lot of trouble. Let me put it this way: I'll just say two words and you'll know. Britney Spears.

"I don't like it. I have to say 60s and 70s bands were my favourites because they were real. They just got up there and kicked it up. Made a mistake - so what? Sounded a little bit empty here or there - so what? It's the bigness and rawness and the people that wrote the songs and presented them.

"I could put on a Motley CD and play with it all day long. I don't want to do that."

Mars also stated that the band would be releasing a new single to coincide with their farewell concert shows:

"I just wrote a new song with Nikki [Sixx], and we're gonna be finishing it up, like, within the next couple of months. There'll be a new single [released in time for the upcoming tour]."
