Heavy Metal Blogs: Mick Mars InterviewOn March 22nd, we had the honour of doing a follow up interview with Mick Mars of Motley Crue.  We covered a variety of topics, including Las Vegas, the KISS tour, new music and Mick’s love of song writing.  The transcription follows below.

Martell: Hi Mick.  Thank you for joining us at We Love Metal again.  We are you today?

Mick: I’m in California today in my studio actually.

Martell: The last time we talked was about a month ago.  You were in the middle of the Vegas shows.  You must be awfully tired coming off that series of shows.

Mick: Nah.  I wish I could tour all year (laughing).  You do get breaks, days off here and there.  Like you know, two or three is good.  But I like touring.

Martell: The big announcement right now is two of the biggest rock bands in the world taking the stage together.  Motley and KISS together – you must be pretty excited about it.

Mick: Oh yeah, yeah.  We played with them once, more than one time but on a short tour with them, and it was crazy then.  And it’s going to be way over the top this time.

Martell: (Laughing) Rumour has it both of you are having your full stage shows.

Mick: Oh yeah, it’s a co-headliner.  It’s going to be equal length, equal everything.  It’s going to be just insanely crazy.  You’re going to walk out with your eyeballs in your hands.

Martell: It must be something to be headlining with such an iconic band like KISS, to finally have Motley up there with them.  To finally get that recognition is a great thing.

Mick: Yeah, definitely.

Martell: Are some of the elements from the Vegas shows going to be in there?

Mick: We haven’t really discussed everything.  I know that Tommy will most likely have the 360 with him, but as far as the theme and what we’re going to have we really have yet to work on that.  We’re just getting ready for our Europe tour, then we come back and hit the road with KISS, so we have to think of two things at once.  Production’s going to be different in Europe than here so it’s like doing two at once.

Martell: We’re all talking of Nikki’s mention of you guys in the studio.  How’s it going?

Mick: Great.  Pretty good.  We’re getting some really good stuff out.  We’re coming up with some ideas and stuff.  We’re just running stuff by the guys and seeing what they think.  We’re going to put it in the Motley machine and see what comes out.  That’s how we’ve always done it.

Martell: It must feel like old times for the four of you to get together and record again.

Mick: Yeah.  It’s really…I can’t even explain it.  It’s just great.  It is like old times, just sitting there bouncing ideas off each other and seeing how it works out.

Martell: Are we going to hear any of this new music when you are out this time?

Mick: It’s not very likely.  I don’t want to say “no” for sure but it’s pretty unlikely.  We’re trying to put together something that’s really amazing so I don’t want to give away a lot.  It could be a single or an EP or it could be a full album.  Whatever it is we’ll try to give the best we’ve really recorded for a long time.  It’s going to be like a Dr. Feelgood…that kind of quality.  I don’t mean like stepping back into the 80’s.  It will be very modern.  It will just be good quality music.

Heavy Metal Blogs: Motley Crue

Martell: With you saying that, SOLA was one of my personal favourite albums because it felt like it was for the fans.  At this point in your career, is this how you write?

Mick: Yeah.

Martell: Have you reached a point in your career where that is where you write for the fans more than anything else?

Mick: Yeah.  When you get to a certain point, you grow and you figure out what fans really like.  There’s always been songs like Kick Start and Girls, there’s always songs like that.  And we want to continue doing that.  On those albums though there might be stuff that might not be so good (laughing).  You know, not up to par with Girls or Feelgood.  Becoming more mature with the music and growing as our audience grows, we just don’t limit ourselves by staying at the same level.  It’s hard for me sometimes to explain what I mean.

Martell: Well Mick, my time’s up.  It’s always an honour.  I want to thank you so much for doing this.

Mick: All good.  Take care.

    These are web sites that stream Television channels at no cost on the World Wide
    Internet. Let’s search at what I did, I was paying about 90$ a month for cable, this means that when I canceled my cable subscription I was not merely watching Tv free of charge (because the 50$ was paid when) but I was really saving much more then 1000$ a year. Well if you are anything similar to I was I used to record all my shows and then for one cause or an extra; I never had the time to watch them. Why settle for other TV for PC services that deliver poor sound and picture quality, or come loaded with hidden fees. But this may not help their Nielsen ratings, since some viewers end up watching the show when it’s released on DVD.
