I am not surprised that they are calling it quits. Listen, I am a MC fan - have been since '83, and have followed them ever since. But to the honest, it is time for them to draw the curtains.

You can tell that certain bands have exhausted their own creativity and desire in the moniker they have been trying to maintain for decades. Each band member obviously has their own plans; whether its in the music business, product/merchandise, and/or plan retirement.

Is it time for MC to go? Yes. But not for reasons that "they suck now", "too much media drama BS", etc. You can tell that the band is tired, and they want to go out on top as best as they can right now. Considering that their top is nothing compared to what they achieved during the Dr. Feelgood days...but overall its a good call.

You can tell they were trying hard back in 2000 with New Tattoo, and eight years later put a damn good release with Saints of Los Angeles, but it sounded like a Nikki Sixx album trying to sound like MC, hell, 85%+ of the album was written by Sixx, Michael, Ashba, Frederiksen... it did not feel truly like a MC record.

So, with them going out on top... a new album (independent of the film or not), a grand world tour and their [ahem] biography movie on the horizon...its time to say goodbye.
