  • Former Ozzy Osbourne and Ratt guitarist Jake E. Lee recalled how his feud started with Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars back in the 1980s. He told Tone-Talk in a recent interview, "Nikki and Tommy wanted me in the band. They actually wanted me to replace Mick … you can understand that – f*cking better looking and f*cking better playing. They wanted me to replace Mick. Mick's in-law or whatever was funding the band, so that didn't happen." When the idea of becoming the Crue’s fifth member came up, Lee thought, "‘Two guitar players. I don't know about that.’ ... So, anyway, it kind of started with that. ‘Cause there was that thing going. Whether somebody denies it or not, that's what started the rift between me and Mick."
