In an Instagram post shared on February 6, Marks shared that he had spent the previous Saturday hanging out with Mars. He then revealed that Mars had allowed him to listen to some of the material coming in his solo material.

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,” he wrote. “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!”, Marks added.

Mick Mars announced his oficial retirement from touring with Mötley Crüe in 2022 due to his health battles. The 72-year old musician remains a part of the band, with former Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 stepping in as the band’s current live guitarist.
