Motley Crue Guitarist Compares Band's Live Show To Britney Spears

Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars reportedly compared his band to popstar Britney Spears during a radio interview when he was asked about the band using backing tapes during their concerts.

Mars made the comments in a response to a question from Eddie Trunk about Motley Crue using backing tapes in concert, according to hennemusic. "That's a whole another story right there, son…," Mars responded. "That could get me in a lot of trouble. I could say there's, like, a… Let me put it this way… I'll just say two words and you'll know: Britney Spears."

"I don't like it," he continued. "I think a band like ours… I have to say '60s bands were my favorite - '60s and '70s bands - because they were real, like, three-piece bands or four-piece bands, and they just got up there and kicked it up. Made a mistake? So what? Sounded a little bit empty here or there? So what? It's the bigness and the rawness and the people that developed and wrote the songs and made them and presented them. To me, that's what I really like. I mean, I could put on a Motley CD and play with it all day long. I don't wanna do that."
