Ex-Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars is now streaming the third single "Undone" from his long-awaited debut album The Other Side Of Mars, due out on February 23 via his own 1313 LLC label. The Other Side Of Mars features keyboardist Paul Taylor (Winger, ex-Alice Cooper), vocalist Jacob Bunton, drummer Ray Luzier (Korn), and bassist Chris Collier, as well as vocalist Brion Gamboa on two songs.
The Other Side Of Mars was produced by Michael Wagener, who both engineered and mixed Mötley Crüe's 1981 debut Too Fast For Love. "I had known him for a long time, and I actually brought him to Mötley," said Mars of Wagener. "He had such an understanding of where I wanted to go with the material. And he never said ‘Hey, do this,’ or tried to change my mind or anything like that. He was just really adamant about recording what I wanted to record, and making sure we recorded it right."
As far as Mars' legal issues go, things have recently turned around. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James C. Chalfant recently ruled that Mars' former bandmates in Mötley Crüeu njustly "refused" to hand over their business reports to Mars during a hearing on Tuesday, January 16. Chalfant states that Mötley Crüe shouldn't have taken eight months to hand over the documents, and that the band is now entitled to pay for Mars' legal bills. Check out the full story here.
