Mick Mars says his former Mötley Crüe bandmates are trying to get rid of his legacy.
In a new interview, the guitarist and founding member claims his exit from the band last year was involuntary.
He explained, “When they wanted to get high and f— everything up, I covered for them. Now they’re trying to take my legacy away, my part of Mötley Crüe, my ownership of the name, the brand. How can you fire Mr. Heinz from Heinz ketchup? He owns it. Frank Sinatra’s or Jimi Hendrix’s legacy goes on forever, and their heirs continue to profit from it. They’re trying to take that away from me. I’m not going to let them.”
Mars has been in a legal battle with his ex-bandmates since April after he filed a lawsuit against the band for trying to remove him from the group.
