MÖTLEY CRÜE's Online Chat With USA TODAY: Transcript Available

MÖTLEY CRÜE took part in an online chat with fans on the USA Today web site on Friday, December 17. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

Q: What is it like being back together after all the years? Do you all have the same feeling like you did years ago?

Mick Mars: "I don't think we broke up as a band, we never really did. We separated, like you would with a spouse, and we had different directions at the time. And we decided to get back to business, we got back together, and it felt just like yesterday that we playing tours. We look forward to playing all over the world. It's like everything is brand new again and it's a lot of fun to relearn and get reacquainted.

"It's all about the makeup sex."

Q: Nikki, I notice you wearing an AMEN armband, don't you think thats a bit weird as AMEN is pretty vocal about hating "rock stars" and being rock stars is what MÖTLEY CRÜE are famous and loved for?

Nikki: "Casey is a really good friend and I had Casey open for me and another band I was doing. What Casey is anti is establishment, anti-corporate, he's pro for people that are passionate about their music. I support other bands that are passionate as we are. He's a big MÖTLEY CRÜE fan."

Q: Have you ever thought about releasing a DVD with behind-the-scenes footage of your past years? There has to be some videotape somewhere of that. I know I came across some photos of Vince and Tommy having a little fun with some girls on the Vince Neil Website. lol I think that would be [great] to release a behind-the-scenes DVD to let the fans experience MÖTLEY on say a little more personal level. It's in the past, no one can change it. So why not release it?

Nikki: "We've always been forthcoming with our personal lives whether it's on video, no pun intended, or otherwise. We have a book and movie coming out in Paramount. So it's not far-fetched that one point we won't dig into our archives. The problem with that is the rating. We're not hanging out drinking milk if you know what I mean. But we'll look into that."
