Mötley Crüe's Mick Mars on Cock-Rocking Till 75 and "Sex"

Oh, no... They don't need no lovin', no respect. 'Cause it's all about the sex.

Even though the dudes of Mötley Crüe have all reached that advanced age when it often becomes necessary to pop a little blue pill if you wanna rock a long, strong, and sustained erection, they've just unleashed a hot and sticky new release. And yes, it's called "Sex."

Screeching and sighing, the Crüe's 51-year-old lead screamer, Vince Neil, sounds like a pitch-corrected, Viagra-popping tomcat on a heat-seeking mission for some pussy while bass-slinger Nikki Sixx, 53, lays down licks and puckers his lips; notorious schlongman Tommy Lee, 49, pounds the skins; and elder axman Mick Mars, 61, strangles his instrument in the style of a glam-metal S&M sesh.

Crüe you.
Crüe you.

Sure, mascara-wearing rock 'n' roll dicksmanship might seem a little anachronistic in 2012. But this glittery, pheromone-soaked ode to boning is undoubtedly classic Crüe. "Sometimes, every band strays a little bit," Mars explains, musing on "Sex" and his band's legacy of awesomely sleazy riffage. "You experiment. But you always get back to the roots."

And really, what are the Mötley dudes' roots except furious humping, frenzied drugging, and feathered headbanging? It almost makes an '80s baby wonder if Vince, Nikki, Tommy, and Mick plan to follow up with Crüe tunes called "Drugs" and "Rock 'n' Roll."

"Yeah, that's a good question!" Mars laughs. "Right now, we're out on tour. But after we're done with the road, there's bound to be a bunch of things headed in that direction, like 'Girls' and 'Feelgood.' And we'll be getting back to the good old rock days."

Of course, those "good old rock days" began three decades ago. In fact, the Crüe sprung onto the scene in 1981. So, we had to ask, as a rocker enters his seventh decade, does he cut down on his groupie encounters? Guzzle less whiskey? Nap more often? Is sex and life different for an older rock 'n' roll gentleman?

"Well, yes," Mars hisses sarcastically. "Lots of things change. One doesn't," he snickers, pausing. "I'm still no gentleman. I'm still as big an asshole as ever. Lewd and aggressive.

"But honestly, there's one thing that's really different for me... Being sober. And it's really helped. The playing is better. The songs are better. There are some people who drink their whole lives. But thankfully, I was just like, 'Ah, I'm over this shit. Over the drug thing. Over the booze thing. Over this other thing.' I don't have many vices, except playing my guitar too much. I guess I'm kind of a boring guy these days. But that's how I'm gonna keep going with Mötley Crüe as long as I can."
