“The power goes out; it’s so loud.”Jacob Bunton
Jacob Bunton is describing the volume Motley Crue’s Mick Mars plays guitar in the recording studio. Bunton continues.
“It’s louder than anything you’ve ever heard in your life. Louder than a jet engine – I’m not exaggerating. He runs through so many (speaker) cabinets and (amplifier) heads, and everything it is insane. Still, his tone is just the most incredible thing you’ve heard.”
Bunton is the lead singer on Mars’ highly anticipated debut solo album. Although former Crue replacement singer John Corabi spent some time in the studio with Mars. Bunton, who lives in Chelsea, Alabama near Birmingham, is the sole lead vocalist on the as-yet-untitled album. The album is tentatively planned for a summer release.
