The Other Side Of Mick Mars On Talkin’ Rock Download

30:22 Download February 12th

Such an honor to have Mick Mars on the show. His new album “The Other Side Of Mars” drops on February 23rd, and it’s a killer record.

The album really shows off different sides to Mick’s musicality. It really takes you on a roller coaster ride. “Yeah, I wanted to see what happens. Lots of different styles, different things.” He went on “I intentionally wanted it to be very diverse.” 

What’s also different about this record is that Mick is more upfront than he ever was in the Crue. This is his project and he’s the face of it. From the video treatments which are primarily black and white. “When I was in Motley I wrote for Motley. But with this, it’s for me.” He jokingly calls it “Mars”ley.

He told me his heart is in the blues, but he didn’t want to put out a blues album. He explained why that is. Mick also told me the moment he fell in love with music. He was very young!

There are some musical heavyweights on this album. Starting with the producer, Micheal Wagener. This guy worked with Mick back on the very first Motley album. Then, he’s got Korn’s Ray Luzier on drums. He is an incredible talent. Mick described him with one word – awesome!

I also asked him about collaborating with other artists. “Oh, yeah. I’m not sure with whom. I like to keep things fresh.” He said he’s already working on his next album. “I’ve already got, like, four really, really solid songs.” As far as guests for his next album, he said he’s pretty sure he’ll have some on it.

As far as albums he’s credited on, I had to ask him about the Hear ‘N Aid project he was part of in the 80s. From what he recalls it was fun. LOL He goes into that a little deeper.
