Two different members of Motley Crue have cited guitarist Mick Mars' health as a main reason why the band will stop touring following a farewell tour.
In August, singer Vince Neil said the band would play a farewell tour and mentioned Mars' disease. Mick Mars suffers from ankylosing spondylitis, which is a form of arthritis and has had hip replacement surgery.
After that interview, Mars took to Twitter to publicly disagree with the idea that his health would stop the band from touring.
More recently, drummer Tommy Lee brought up Mars' health while talking about a farewell tour.
Once again, this did not sit well with Mars. The guitarist tweeted:
Once again Any rumors regarding a farewell tour due to 'my poor health is BS. I am doing fine, my AS has never kept me from touring.— Mick Mars (@mrmickmars) October 26, 2013
Then, Lee replied:
@mrmickmars it's probably not so much about your physical health it's more about our mental health as a band! Haha!— T O M M Y L E E (@MrTommyLand) October 26, 2013
