Mick Mars: 'Crue Split Not Down to Me'
Motley Crue axeman Mick Mars has insisted his lifelong health battle has nothing to do with the band's upcoming retirement, Classic Rock reports.

The guitarist has spent years suffered from ankylosing spondylitis, a condition that causes joints in the spine to fuse together.

Last week singer Vince Neil said that was one of the reasons the band are planning to bow out after a farewell tour and a movie based on their celebrated book "The Dirt."

Neil reported: "Touring is tough on him."

But Mars tweets: "Any rumours regarding a farewell tour due to 'my poor health' are BS. I am doing fine. My AS has never kept me from touring and never will."

In the same interview Neil appeared to contradict bassist Nikki Sixx, who'd previously said Crue would "blow its own brains out" to ensure they'd never try to stage a comeback.

The singer stated: "I'm sure in five or ten years' time we'll probably do something together again but it's not going to be like a Kiss farewell to the farewell to the farewell tour. Were not going to be like that."
