MÖTLEY CRÜE Just Told Another Lie: ‘There Were No Backing Tracks’ During Summer Tour

Last month, MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s former guitarist Mick Mars, 71, got everyone’s attention when the iconic shredder filed a lawsuit against his ex-bandmates, alleging widespread use of backing tracks during live performances and accusing bassist Nikki Sixx of manipulating him into thinking he had lost cognitive abilities and guitar skills. All of this was predicted and exposed ultimately to the world by legendary rock journalist Randy “Rocket” Cody of TheMetalDen.com far before it was ever admitted to or confirmed by Nikki Sixx and the Crue’s shady manager or the fake mainstream news media.

MÖTLEY CRÜE has gone into damage control mode as fans begin to unleash their wrath against the glam metal band for betraying them, and telling non stop lies over and over again, in attempt to cover up the shady antics of Sixx and Allen Kovac, the band’s unscrupulous manager.

Fans will recall the big blow up for the glam metal rockers came when drummer Carmine Appice revealed that Mick Mars was not happy with how The Stadium Tour concerts were executed for the fans.

In his lawsuitMick alleges that MÖTLEY CRÜE reduced his share of earnings from 25 percent to a mere 5 percent after revealing his decision to withdraw from touring. Additionally, he states that the group’s attorneys made him feel as if he should appreciate this minimal portion, as they believed they had no obligation to provide him with anything. Mick also asserts that a complete band gathering took place where they chose to “unilaterally” exclude him from MÖTLEY CRÜE.

Mick consistently alleged that bassist Nikki Sixx was “gaslighting” him by suggesting his guitar abilities were declining due to Mars being “too old” in Sixx’s eyes, even though Sixx didn’t “play a single note on bass” throughout a recent tour, as stated by the guitarist. Mick stated in the lawsuit that all of Nikki‘s segments were pre-recorded.

MÖTLEY CRÜE responded to accusations of utilizing pre-recorded backing tracks during live performances in the comments area of a Facebook post shared yesterday (May 1). The post showcased a brief clip of Tommy Lee playing the drums at a concert held at Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA on August 27, 2022.

The band responded to a comment from a fan, who wrote: “Saw the backing tracks tour last yr and paid dearly to see it. It’s a hard NO for me this time around…”

Band then responded: “THIS IS THE SUMMER TOUR FOOTAGE FOR F*CKS SAKE. THERE WERE NO BACKING TRACKS FOR BAND MEMBERS.”

Check out the screen shot below for the ‘blow by blow’ of the brutal interaction.

Sixx is just telling more lies to cover up the ugly truth. The fact is TMD broke the shocking news to the world last year when Rocket of TMD caught Tommy Lee fake drumming and the news story was picked up by all the iHeart radio stations across America, as well as a hundred plus rock/metal webzines.

Mick Mars himself said in his lawsuit that Sixx did not play one note live during the entire run of The Stadium Tour, and other news outlets have busted Vince Neil doing lip-syncing earlier this year in the states before the World Tour kicked off. In the end, the only person who was really performing live without backing tracks was Mick Mars.
