Former BEAUTIFUL CREATURES guitarist DJ Ashba has rejected Internet reports that he will be playing with MÖTLEY CRÜE during the group's upcoming tour as the replacement for Mick Mars, whose poor health is said to be an ongoing concern with respect to CRÜE's upcoming heavy touring schedule.An apparently unsubstantiated rumor posted at several web sites on Friday (Jan. 7) suggested that Mick will be present at each show and play during the encore and appear during any meet-and-great/signing sessions, but is not well enough to play each gig. Responding to the rumors, Ashba wrote on the Bulletin Board of his official web site, "Just want to set the record straight. As much as I would love to play on tour with MÖTLEY, it's simply not true...it's a rumor. I'll be in the studio and playing shows with ASHBA. I have all the respect in the world for MÖTLEY CRÜE and I can't wait to see Mick kick ass, as always."
