Former JANE'S ADDICTION/RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist Dave Navarro, who was the subject of a recent unsubstantiated rumor that he would step in to replace MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars on CRÜE's upcoming tour due to Mick's physical problems, has posted a new message on his official web site stating that "I have received information from a reliable source that Mick Mars is still doing the CRÜE tour, despite Internet rumors regarding his health."

Regarding the rumor that he would be replacing Mars on the tour, Navarro previously wrote, "I have not been approached by anyone associated with MÖTLEY CRÜE. I do plan on going to see them." Mars suffers from a chronic degenerative illness called ankylosing spondylitis, which can fuse together some or all joints and bones of the spine. He underwent hip replacement surgery in October.

MÖTLEY CRÜE's "Red, White & Crüe" reunion tour starts Valentine's Day (February 14) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. They'll release a new best-of set called "Red, White & Crüe" on February 1, which features three new songs — the single "If I Die Tomorrow", "Sick Love Song", and a cover of the ROLLING STONES' "Street Fighting Man" (featuring A PERFECT CIRCLE drummer Josh Freese).
