TMD’s readers have recently read there has been a rumor circulating in the industry that the Crue’s Mick Mars is no longer in the band. It’s said that John 5 will be replacing Mars in MÖTLEY CRÜE.

Well, this rumor sadly turned out to be true. The former Rob Zombie shredder, who is 19 years younger than Mars, is now said to be the Crue’s new lead guitarist. Well, so says rock reporter Jason Green.

Yes, that’s right, John William Lowery is a member of MÖTLEY CRÜE.

Mick Mars, 71, is not.

As the story goes, Glam website Metal Sludge (owned by Stevie Rachelle of Tuff fame) “had collectively heard this rumor from 3 different industry sources” before reporting it, and “1 of those was in fact Jason Green, who we have been given his all clear to name him as 1 of our sources.”

Here’s the word from Green:

Mr. Green has come out and stated: “A lot of people are tuning in right now for the hot ahh, rumor… story, I am not saying it’s a rumor, I am reporting it as fact. That John 5 will be joining Motley Crue for their upcoming foreign tour.’
