Crue's Mick Mars Considers Soul Release
The glam metal guitarist may release an R&B album
Motley Crue may be in the midst of a huge 30th Anniversary tour but Sleaze Roxx reports that guitarist Mick Mars is working on some new solo projects, too. He recently jammed with legendary jazz guitarist George Benson, and the two found that they had a lot in common - namely that they're both fans of Wes Montgomery. The session so affected Mars, he's now considering releasing a solo effort of R&B, soul, and blues songs.
"I found the right drummer, and I've asked Macy Gray if she'd like to guest on it," he says. "It's not going to be anything like Motley Crue, but a lot of different cultural beats."
In the meantime, Crue will be touring the US for a 40 date tour with Poison and New York Dolls.
The band have allowed fans to vote for their setlist and it means that the band will be playing songs that they haven't played for a decade or more.
