First things first, how's the wrist and are you going to be able to play for the UK? I went to the doctor a couple of days ago, got a massive injection of cortisone in my wrist and man, 10 minutes later it felt amazing. Was it frustrating to have to sit backstage and watch? All the doctors tell you when you've got tendonitis, there's no secret remedy, you just need to stop and rest. " It's brutal sitting on the side watching somebody else do your job. I have more fun than humans are allowed to have up there. " And then the moment comes when you walk in for that first day of rehearsal and it's set up. For me it really sinks in right at the very end when I'm sitting at the piano for Home Sweet Home.
The Mötley Crüe drummer - who was previously married to 'Baywatch' actress Pamela Anderson and 'Melrose Place' beauty Heather Locklear, and has been linked to a string of other high profile stars, including Pink and Tara Reid, in the past - claims he doesn't know how many women he has bedded, but insists it's probably ''not as many as you think.''Asked how many people he has had sex with, he admitted: ''Jesus. Tommy was also previously married to Elaine Bergen.
Even in my sl*ttiest moments, I'm pretty f**king picky for real.''But the 52-year-old rocker says his standards are often lower after he has a few drinks because he just wants to have ''a good time.''He told Bang Showbiz: ''Yeah, you get drunk and you are like she will do, she looks like fun, we will have a good time.
After three decades of decadence it's a miracle Mötley Crüe's members are still standing, let alone touring.
Drugs, booze, bikes, sex, more drugs, a LOT more drugs, bassist Nikki Sixx even being declared temporarily dead after OD'ing on heroin... Sixx's brief meet 'n greet with The Grim Reaper was simply immortalised in Kickstart My Heart - an anthem so chest rattling it actually feels like the CPR that brought Sixx back from the beyond - and the band played on. In just two short months the mayhem will finally come to an end, and this time nothing can ever breathe life back into the band.
weaker souls would've hung up their leather trousers long ago. Last year, the four founder members, Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee, singer Vince Neil and guitarist Mick Mars, signed a legally binding document that will prevent them from ever performing as Mötley Crüe again once the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve 2015.
Older, wiser and cleaner they may be these days, but the Crüe aren't leaving quietly.The foursome have been saying their goodbyes to fans around the globe on The Final Tour, the biggest, wildest and most spectacular show in their history, which finally rolls into the UK next week.At the centre of the show as ever is drummer Tommy Lee, who this time isn't just the playing drums, he's playing a ROLLER COASTER. It's as if his instrument has had a filthy one-night stand in Disneyland and spawned the Crüecifly, a monstrous metal 'coaster which launches him 200ft into the arena each night.It's not all been a walk in the theme park, though.Playing upside down has taken its toll on Tommy who was forced to skip the band's last few shows after developing tendonitis and bruising a bone in his wrist.We caught up with the legendary sticksman to find out if he's ready to rock the UK one last time. When we were designing it, everything looked really good on paper and we were thinking, "this is going to be mindblowing!
