MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee has revealed why some of the CRÜE members keep away from him backstage.
He also said he played his upcoming solo album, Andro, for bassist Nikki Sixx, but he doubts that singer Vince Neil and guitarist Mick Mars would be interested in hearing it.
“I played it for Nikki, and he f*cking loved it,” Lee said in a new interview with Classic Rock. “He was like, ‘Great job, dude.’ The other two, Vince and Mick, it probably wouldn’t be their cup of tea.
“When we’re backstage, they always put me as far away as possible, because I have a f*cking club PA in my dressing room and I’m always playing f*cking crazy music,” he added. “They’re like, ‘Put him way, way down the hall. We don’t want to hear it.’”
Asked if it’s bother him that some MÖTLEY CRÜE fans won’t like Andro, Lee said: “I kind of feel sorry for people who are just rock fans, ’cause they’re gonna miss some really f*cking cool songs that aren’t necessarily straight rock. They’re just f*cking cool songs.”
When asked if he thinks he’ll ever make a new MÖTLEY CRÜE, Tommy responded: “Who knows? It’s possible. We got a stadium tour next summer, so it’s always a possibility. I never say never.”
