Mick Mars has filed a lawsuit against his Mötley Crüe bandmates, alleging the band is screwing him over financially. Journey’s guitarist Neal Schon has now weighed in on the matter.
Furthermore, Mars came up with bold claims about bassist Nikki Sixx about “gaslighting” him about getting worse at guitar despite Sixx not “playing a single note on bass” throughout the band’s original farewell tour. The lawsuit seeks to allow Mars to have a look at the band’s financials to see if he’s truly getting ripped off.
Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars has given his first interview about his decision to file a lawsuit against the band that he was a part of for more than four decades, claiming that he “carried these bastards for years” and insisting that he is “not gonna let anybody take” away from him his “part of this company” that made Motley Crue what it is.
Neal Schon opens up on the matter
Schon sided with Mars on Twitter, praising his contributions to the band and highlighting the challenges he has faced due to his health issues.
When Mitch Lafon asked people on Twitter if they supported Mars or Mötley Crüe in their dispute, Schon simply replied:
“Given his health issues and his obvious swagger, he gives to the band through his guitar playing. He didn’t deserve this.”
Given his health issues, and he obvious swagger, he gives to the band through his guitar playing. He didn’t deserve this.
