Mick Mars took the stage at the Ernie Ball Music Man Pickers’ Paradise show at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville on June 23, making his first appearance since Mötley Crüe ended their farewell tour last New Year’s Eve.
Mars played briefly, performing cover tunes that included Led Zeppelin‘s “Rock and Roll,” shown below, with a band fronted by singer Kenny Olson.
The guitarist is preparing for his first post-Crüe album. The release is apparently going to be a collaboration with singer John Corabi, who briefly replaced Vince Neil in Crüe during the early Nineties. Corabi announced in 2015 that he and Mars were planning to work together, and the two entered the studio early this year. Shortly afterward, Mars posted a photo from the sessions and celebrated the “new, fresh, greasy LOUD ASS, slamming music” the duo were creating. In February, Mars and Corabi released a 30-second clip of music from their work in progress, presented at bottom.
