Imagem Music USA (IMU) has signed a worldwide, multi-year administration agreement with songwriter and Mötley Crüe member Mick Mars, whose signature guitar sound has become a staple of American rock music. Critics, recording artists and musicians around the globe have hailed Mars as one of the world's greatest guitar players. Mars co-wrote some of Mötley Crüe's greatest hits including "Girls Girls Girls," "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)," and "Dr. Feelgood."
"Owning my own publishing is something that I am very proud of," Mars says. "I am happy to bring Richard Stumpf and everyone at Imagem on board to administer those rights worldwide."
"Mick defines an era of musical history and to me is the Godfather of Sunset Strip guitar rock," said Richard Stumpf, President of IMU. "He is rooted in, and has a continued passion, for the blues and his riffs are legendary. It is a great honor to welcome such a creative force to the Imagem Music family."
