Former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E. Lee explained the feud with Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars that started in the ’80s.

“Nikki and Tommy wanted me in the band,” Lee told Tone-Talk. “They actually wanted me to replace Mick … you can understand that – fucking better looking and fucking better playing. They wanted me to replace Mick. Mick’s in-law or whatever was funding the band, so that didn’t happen.”
