That time I asked Mick Mars if Mötley Crüe were softening on Theatre of Pain, then added that I liked their debut album best
By Steve Newton
Way the hell back in November of 1985 I interviewed Mick Mars at his Vancouver hotel before a show on Mötley Crüe’s Theatre of Pain tour.
I was quite the little metalhead back then, and I liked my tunes with a bit of bite, so at one point in the conversation I told Mars that it seemed to me like the band’s sound had softened somewhat since the previous Shout at the Devil. Then I followed that up by mentioning that I liked their first album better than their last two.
Sassy bugger, eh? Anyway, Mick didn’t take offence. I’m pretty sure he’s the coolest in the Crue.
