He was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis in his late teens and it has lead to many health-related issues that have made it difficult for him to tour with the band n the last several years. He was born Robert Alan Deal on May 4, 1951, in Huntington, Indiana, but his family eventually moved to California. Mars dropped out of high school to pursue a musical career. However, he didn't have much luck on the California music scene playing guitar in a series of unsuccessful blues based rock bands throughout the seventies. Thus, he had to work menial jobs during the day to make ends meet. Spending nearly a decade in such manner, Robert decided to reinvent himself, changing his stage name to Mick Mars and dyeing his hair jet black, hoping for a fresh start. Soon, Mick Mars was discovered by aspiring musicians Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx. The two along with Mars as a guitarist and Vince Neil as a lead singer formed a band in 1980 and named it Motley Crue which was Mars' suggestion. Ever since, the band has become one of the most notorious rock bands and one of the world's best-selling groups of all time, having sold 75 million albums worldwide and 25 million in the US. They have released nine studio albums in total, the last of which, Saints of Los Angeles 2008, was certified Gold. But aside from being an impressive guitarist, Mick has also proved to be an avid songwriter. Actually, he has contributed songs to several bands aside from Motley Crue.
