Mötley Crüe Members Remain Silent On Mick Mars’ Birthday Amid Lawsuit

Mötley Crüe recently preferred to remain silent as fans and fellow rockers celebrated their former bandmate and buddy Mick Mars‘ birthday through wishful messages via Twitter.

Mars quite recently celebrated his 72nd birthday, and the rocker’s fans flooded his Twitter with loving messages and best wishes. The guitarist’s fellow rockers also remembered Mars on his birthday, as names such as former Crüe frontman John Corabi and Korn drummer Ray Lutzier celebrated the day with simple but wholesome tweets.

However, Mötley Crüe wasn’t as eager to join the party and wish Mick a happy birthday as neither the band’s official social media accounts nor the members themselves released personal celebratory statements or a simple ‘Hey man, have a nice day’ type of courtesy message, breaking years of tradition.

This only shows things haven’t improved between Mick and his bandmates ever since the rocker brought up a lawsuit against Mötley Crüe, accusing his bandmates of trying to make him give up his shares in the band. After that, things turned even more controversial when Nikki Sixx commented how the act carried the guitarist on their backs for years while indicating he’d been manipulated.

So, with all the recent controversy, it wasn’t that surprising that the band members remained silent. On the other hand, Mick didn’t seem to mind it as much or at least chose not to comment on the matter as he thanked every fan and fellow rocker for their birthday messages.

Corabi’s birthday tweet stated:

Happy birthday, Mick!”

Korn rocker Lutzier’s message followed:

“Happy birthday, Mick Mars! Much love from the Luzier’zzz.”

Mick’s words on appreciating all the messages he received:

Thank you all so so very much for all the birthday wishes. Soooo awesome of you all. Peace.”

Mötley Crüe is currently in the studio, working on their next album without Mars before heading off their upcoming world tour. In the meantime, the guitarist enjoys being off the tour bus and working on his upcoming solo record.
