retiling bathroom wall


Retiling bathroom walls on 3 walls around my bathroom. Is it honestly easier just to tear down the drywall and redrywall first. Or should I honestly attempt to remove old tiles and thinset?

Trust me: Much eaiser to tear it all down and re-do drywall and cement board (in wet areas)...then install new tile...
