MÖTLEY CRÜE Have Entered The Studio With Longtime Producer BOB ROCK
It seems that MÖTLEY CRÜE have joined forces with their long-term producer Bob Rock and ventured into the studio to create some fresh tracks for the band.
Yesterday, CRÜE guitarist John 5 shared a photo of him laying down tracks in a recording studio. He also posted a picture of Rock in front of a mixing board. The accompanying caption read: “Let’s do this @motleycrue #bobrock”.
Tommy Lee shared the same photos on his Instagram page, along with one showing Lee, John 5 and CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx in the “big studio”. He captioned the images: “Hit that mother f**king record button Mr. Rock!!! Go!”
Last week, Nikki Sixx confirmed that MÖTLEY CRÜE are working on new songs.
Not even two weeks after posting on Twitter that he and the band’s guitarist, John 5, had been “writing random riffs,” the bass player took to social media once more to share a photo featuring himself, drummer Tommy Lee, and John 5, as they played and recorded in a studio, accompanied by a caption: “Another killer songwriting day with Tommy Lee and John 5.”
He shared more information in a follow-up tweet, writing: “We are writing. The creative process of songwriting has always been the heartbeat of our band. We’re gonna go in the big studio next week and record a few off the floor and see where it goes. We don’t have a definitive plan at this point. Just letting the songs guide us.”
As previously reported, Mick Mars has retired from touring with MÖTLEY CRÜE due to worsening health issues, and has been replaced with John 5.
Earlier this month, Mars filed a lawsuit against MÖTLEY CRÜE, claiming that his fellow band members are attempting to remove him from the band and diminish his ownership shares due to his incapacitating ailment.
