MUDVAYNE’s Chad Gray Thinks MÖTLEY CRÜE Sucks (Like The Rest Of The World): “Come on, man!”

MUDVAYNE/HELLYEAH vocalist Chad Gray has discussed his early adoration of glam metal band Mötley Crüe. But he also revealed that he is no fan of the band’s latest round of reunion touring, which beyond epic legal battles and lineup changes, has faced numerous allegations of lip-syncing and heavy usage of backing tracks. Some of those allegations have even come from the band’s ousted 72-year-old guitarist Mick Mars.

Brutal criticism of vocalist Vince Neil, however, is at the forefront. There’s been no shortage of videos that capture Neil’s “lip sync” based live performances, or other disastrous moments (like falling off the stage) at his own solo shows.

Speaking on The Jesea Lee Show, Gray stated:

“At this point, I would just bow out. It’s not the same, dude. I’m not the guy that fucking like just wants to sit and talk shit, but I have, unfortunately… It hits me in such a pure place, and to see it just kind of turn into fucking whatever because it was such a big part of my life, and so it’s hard for me to watch.”

When asked if he feels Mötley Crüe “should just call it completely at this point”, Gray responded:

“Unless you wanna try harder. You know what I mean? … but it’s just, like, come on, man.”
