As previously reported, former Ozzy Osbourne, and current Red Dragon Cartel guitarist, Jake E. Lee, recently recounted that Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, and drummer Tommy Lee, asked him replace guitarist Mick Mars, in the band.

Sixx responsed by tweeting, “Isn’t it funny how the has been’s, never was’, washed up long ago small career people all started coming outta the woodwork around the movie? I guess it’s their only way to get attention in 2019. God bless them. They must be desperate.”

Additionally posting that Lee’s story account was, “[A] make believe story. Everybody wants peice of the Crüe now. Believe me. Almost 40 years together. We know our story way more than some shadowy worms.”

Mötley Crüe, The Dirt movie, and soundtrack, were both released on March 22nd.

    More publicity always helps

    First the limo driver, now it’s Jake’s turn, I wonder who’s next? Who cares! Who’s memory is that good (especially these guys) from 35-40 years ago?

    Jake’s recent comments seem a little angry, disgruntled, maybe bitter ? maybe all of the above, But…
    He has never been.. a has been or a never was , he is not washed up , and has had a great career , by no means small playing with both Ozzy and Badlands , and dont forget what a great guitarist he is – Badlands If Ray had lived would have blew up ! Badlands was so much better musically than the crue could ever hope to be , and obviously playing with Ozzy was not part of anyone’s small career – yes the crue had a great career , but Nikki’s high school response was as ridiculous as the Crue movie –

    Here am I again, after attending another funeral viewing, just to say while although not a huge Crue fan, I think Mick Mars was perfect in his role in the band. I remember reading in some magazine eons ago him saying that he wasn’t one of those guys who would play a million miles an hour all over the fretboard and that he didn’t like to dwell on his time before Motley Crue cos many times he wasn’t sure how was going to eat that day. Sixx himself said that when he first met Mars, he reminded him of some reject from the Addams Family and that he would be perfect in the image he was trying to convey with Motley. Personally I think that Mick’s guitar tone and solos is what stands out most on a Crue song.Ok, some of the drum parts as well. If anyone out there read through this whole post, thanks. Goodnight.
