Motley Crue’s Mick Mars Compares The Band To Britney Spears
By Nadia Noir
Welcome to the 21st century where rock stars aren’t bellowing over a crappy sound system–instead they have pre-recorded backing vocals like some of the laziest pop stars.
When asked in an interview with Blabbermouth about the backing tapes, Mars said: “That’s a whole another story – that could get me in a lot of trouble. Let me put it this way: I’ll just say two words and you’ll know. Britney Spears.”
“I don’t like it. I have to say 60s and 70s bands were my favorites because they were real,” Mars elaborated. “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 rawness and the people that wrote the songs and presented them.”
“I could put on a Motley CD and play with it all day long. I don’t want to do that.”
The boys will embark on their farewell tour soon.
