Motley Crue 'Too Stupid To Do Anything Else'

(Gibson) While Vince Neil, Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx have lived in the tabloid headlines for three decades, Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars has always managed to keep a relatively low profile. Still, the 60-year old axeman is an essential part of the Crüe's beefy sound, which is melting faces all over North America this summer. The tour, with supporting acts Poison and the New York Dolls, has pulled in a new generation of fans.

"It's a cool thing for me," Mars told Birmingham Weekly "People are there holding up their kids. Our fans are growing up and have kids and it's cool to see that."

When asked how the band have managed to keep it together all these years, Mars waxed philosophical. "Because we are all too stupid to do anything else," he laughed. "I don't know—it's 30 years' worth of stuff and it's like a family. We have our spats, just like any other family kind of thing. It's like Thanksgiving—everybody can argue about how the turkey is cooked. That gives you an idea of how things can get petty. You go off for a month and then you start talking, it's that kind of a deal. It's not a big deal at all." more on this story
