Mick Mars says Motley Crue isn't retiring because of him.

Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars says the band is not retiring because of his health.

Mars has had Ankylosing spondylitis, which is a form of degenerative arthritis that makes the vertebrae in his spine fuse together, for years now.

In a recent interview with the Oakland Press, CRÜE singer Vince Neil said that Mars' ongoing battle with the disease as well as the band's desire to "go out on top" were the primary reasons for CRÜE's revelation that they will call it quits after 2015.

Mars then took to his Twitter account, saying “Any rumors regarding a farewell tour due to 'my poor health' are BS. I am doing fine, my AS has never kept me from touring and never will."

Motley Crue is planning to play 12 shows at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas from September 12th through October 6th.
