The former Mötley Crüe guitar legend Mick Mars celebrates 73



Born on May 4, 1951, in Terre Haute, Indiana, Robert Alan Deal, later known as Mick Mars, rose to prominence as the lead guitarist for Mötley Crüe, one of the most iconic rock bands of the 1980s. With his distinctive sound and unmistakable stage presence, Mars played a pivotal role in shaping the band’s signature sound. His gritty guitar riffs and electrifying solos became synonymous with the hard-hitting, rebellious spirit of the era.
During his time with Mötley Crüe, Mars contributed to the band’s meteoric rise to fame, delivering hit after hit with albums like “Shout at the Devil,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” and “Dr. Feelgood.” His guitar work on tracks like “Kickstart My Heart” and “Home Sweet Home” solidified his status as a guitar virtuoso and earned him legions of loyal fans around the world.
After decades of rocking stages and topping charts with Mötley Crüe, Mars parted ways with the band in 2015 following their farewell tour. Despite the end of his tenure with Mötley Crüe, Mars has remained active in the music scene, collaborating with other artists and pursuing solo projects.
In addition to his musical endeavors, Mars has also been open about his struggles with health issues, including ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the spine. Despite these challenges, Mars continues to inspire fans with his resilience and passion for music.
