Mick Mars: 'Releasing Another Motley Crue Album Is Not Impossible'

It is "pretty remote" though, the guitarist adds.

Following bassist Nikki Sixx's firm stance about Motley Crue not releasing their previously announced final studio record, guitarist Mick Mars gave a bit more of an approachable statement, noting that the new album is not an impossible scenario.

"I don't know. I would say it's not impossible but the possibility is pretty remote. That's the best I can do with it," Mick told VH1 Radio Network.

Asked about what would happen if the band were to break their "cessation of touring" agreement, Mars explained (via Blabbermouth), "Definitely some big time lawsuits and suing and litigations and all sorts of stuff would be going on, but it won't happen with me, because I'm done."

Last month, Sixx stated that full-length albums tend to "fall to deaf ears" these days, also blaming radio stations for the group's decision. "We've written some songs," he told Classic Rock. "But this is difficult to say and probably harder to hear: when you spend nine months working on an album, all the work that goes into it and recording it, mixing it, mastering it, then you release it and it falls on deaf ears."

Motley Crue are set to hit the road one last time together starting this summer. Check out detailed tour info and ticket prices here.

    Say what you will about Motley Crüe, but Mick Mars is a badass guitar player.
    huh??? ? ? he doesmdt play bass dumbass
    You can't type a sentence that makes sense...and HE'S the dumbass? By the way, Mick Mars is an awesome and underrated guitar player. Gotta love the guy, but hate the medical shit he's had to go through.
    I really wish they'd just talk to each other before talking to the press... Then they could figure out what the hell they really want.
    An article on UG that is not shitty clickbait? It's not impossible, but the possibility is pretty remote.
    I wonder what Vince Neil will say in this situation I bet that he's going to say somthing like "The band never understanded me"
    Mick mars > slash
    It's highly debatable as to which of the two is better; both have shedloads of skill. I will however give Mars credit for playing as consistently as he did in the '80's; despite his ever-declining health. Most people would just give up playing while he soldiers on because he truly enjoys his craft.
    Man just freaking go away already. I like Motley but they are a bunch of whiners.
    With his health issues, can't blame Mick for wanting to retire from touring. It wouldn't be Crue without him. Never been a big Crue fan, but Mick Mars has always been a guitarist that I respected.
