Mars Hasn't Changed... He's Still An A-shole
The Motley Crue guitarist, Mick Mars, 61, believes he's a better musician now he's walked away from drink and drugs. And he'd vowed to keep going until he drops. Mars tells the Miami New Times: "Lots of things change. One doesn't: I'm still no gentleman. I'm still as big an a-shole as ever. Lewd and aggressive. But honestly, there's one thing that's really different for me: being sober. It's really helped the playing is better, the songs are better. There are some people who drink their whole lives, but thankfully I was just like, "Ah, I'm over this shit. Over the drug thing. Over the booze thing." It's great to be clear-headed instead of just sitting around going, "Huh?" like a dummy." He says his only remaining vice is "playing my guitar too much" and accepts that might make him boring in some people's eyes. But he adds: "That's how I'm going to keep going with Motley Crue for as long as I can. Even after that I'll just keep playing and writing for TV commercials, movies, bands, whatever, right until it's all over. There's no way I can keep touring for the rest of my live I don't want to be 75 on the road like an old goat with his head hanging down. But one way or another I'll keep rockin' till I fall down."
