Neal Schon Reacts To Mick Mars’ Comeback After Mötley Crüe Feud
In a recent post on X, Journey’s Neal Schon shared his thoughts on Mick Mars’ comeback following the Mötley Crüe feud in response to a tweet by Mitch Lafon.
Lafon posted a photo of Mars, along with his words on John 5, writing:
“Mick Mars is speaking about John 5 joining Mötley Crüe, ‘He’s been a really good friend of mine for a long time. So I think they’ve made a very, very wise choice with John.'”
Schon’s Praise For Mick
Schon left a comment under this tweet and said the following, referring to Mick’s recently released solo single ‘Loyal to the Lie,’:
“Your album sounds killer, bro. Great choice, but you are the swagger.”
A few months ago, John Corabi implied that Mötley Crüe’s ongoing dispute had caused delays for Mick Mars’ new album, ‘The Other Side Of Mars.’ Mars then broke his silence and teased a countdown for the record on X, hinting at a Halloween release with a video that said ‘Counting down 13 days.’
Mars’ Vision For His Solo Album
After releasing his first solo single, the musician spoke to Metal Hammer not long ago and reflected on what he aimed to do in his upcoming album, saying:
“I wanted to do something that was just big and mean. People are going to hear my tone — my sound. I am what I am. Nobody else can do it. And like everyone, I’ve got a limited number of years. So, I’m gonna do all I can to do a lot of stuff. When it comes to my playing, there’s the Mötley side and the Mars side. Either way, I always have a very clear vision of what I want to do.”
‘The Other Side Of Mars’ is set to arrive on February 23. 2024. Mars previously mentioned that he’s collaborating with artists like Paul Taylor, Jacob Bunton, Brion Gamboa, and German producer Michael Wagener on his debut solo album.
He also revealed that Korn’s drummer, Ray Luzier, insisted on playing on his record despite his busy schedule with Korn. Mars then mentioned that Luzier would be joining him to play drums on a new song he had written.
