Mick Mars thinks he’ll “definitely” lose some fans as his solo record won’t sound like Mötley Crüe

Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars was recently featured on Ernie Ball‘s latest “String Theory” episode and the guitarist spoke about his upcoming solo album.

Mars stated (as indicated by Blabbermouth): “When I come out with my solo project, my first record will give me a key to that door I need to open. I’m definitely gonna lose some fans, because it doesn’t sound like my old band. If it does well, then I know I can go another further, another further, another further, and keep reinventing. I wanna keep evolving, keep moving, keep that motivation going. When you stop learning, [you] might as well just put your guitar down.”
