Now that Mick Mars has retired from touring with Mötley Crüe, he can focus on his long-awaited debut solo album. Mars was recently in the studio doing just that with Canadian country rock singer-songwriter Cory Marks, who described the project as "weird, special, great and LOUD." So exactly what you'd expect from a talent like Mick Mars.

"Spent my Saturday hanging out with one of the coolest, sweetest, most kind down to earth bad asses on this planet that I'm lucky to call a friend," said Marks in an Instagram post. "So many stories and a lot of laughs talking music, guns, planes, guitars, drums, travel, road stories (he's got cooler ones than me), health, fitness, zombies, sex, drugs and rock and roll!

I now know a lot more about Mötley Crüe, Slash, The Rolling Stones, Def Leppard, and the [one] and only Ozzy Osbourne… yes… If you're wondering Ozzy did snort a bunch of aunts… Mick Mars THANK YOU for having me over and letting me hear your new project…which sounds HUGE. The rock world is in for something weird, special, great and LOUD. Surreal walking into your studio and the first thing I see is a gold record on top of a bunch of [Marshall amplifiers] stacked up together with my face and name on it and I'll be sending you a couple more very soon.

"Don't be surprised if you see Mars & Marks on more songs together down the road… Outlaws And Outsiders forever."

Mars announced his retirement from touring with Mötley Crüe back in October due to his ongoing struggle with Ankylosing Spondylitis. John 5 has since taken Mars' place on the road, and will make his debut with the band on February 11 at the Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City, NJ.

As for the Mars solo album, all we know is that drummer Carmine Appice said in a recent interview that Mars was considering doing some small shows around its release.

"He said he's gonna do a solo album and go out and do some gigs," said Appice. "I said, 'Look, if you need anyone to play drums, I'll play with you.' He goes, 'That would be great.' So maybe I'll do some gigs with him. But it's not gonna be big tours. It'll be a weekend maybe somewhere and then go home. Two weekends later maybe a weekend and go home."
