MÖTLEY CRÜE's Mick Mars - "I'm Still No Gentleman; I'm Still As Big An Asshole As Ever, Lewd And Aggressive" MÖTLEY CRÜE
guitarist Mick Mars spoke with S. Pajot from Miami Music recently about a number of topics including their new single, 'Sex',
and The Tour with KISS.
When asked if sex and life is different for a rock n' roller in his
60s he says "Well, yes. Lots of things change. One doesn't," he
snickers, pausing, "I'm still no gentleman. I'm still as big an asshole
as ever. Lewd and aggressive."
"But honestly, there's one thing that's really different for me ...
Being sober. And 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. Over this other thing.' It's great to be
clear-headed, instead of just sitting around going, 'Huh?' like a dummy.
I don't smoke. I don't drink. I don't have many vices, except
playing my guitar too much. I guess I'm kind of a boring guy these days.
But that's how I'm gonna keep going with Mötley Crüe as long as I can.
And even after that, I'll just keep playing and writing for TV
commercials, movies, old bands, new bands, baby bands, whatever, right
until it's all over. There's no way I can keep touring for the rest of
my life, because I don't wanna be 75 on the road like an old goat with
his head hanging down."
