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.”
Lee also discussed how he got into electrical music: “I’ve always been attracted to the beats, whether it be funk, R&B, hip-hop, or f*cking screamo-metal. If it’s got a serious beat, I’m all over it. I started to get into sequencing and electronics and all that shi* in the ’90s. Then when METHODS OF MAYHEM came out, that threw everyone for a loop: ‘Tommy‘s always just one f*cking step ahead, what’s up with that guy?'”
When asked if Rock ‘N’ Roll has became too safe, Lee replied:
“It has, and it’s kind of sad. I haven’t heard a rock record that’s blown my mind in a long while. I can’t think of anything that I’ve heard lately that has made me go, ‘Holy fu*ck!’ And I’m constantly looking.
“When you watch a lot of hip-hop videos or EDM videos, it’s all about people having a good time and just f*cking living life, just f*cking rock-staring it. It’s like the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle is emulated by so many other genres.”
Asked if he thinks he’ll ever make a new MÖTLEY CRÜE, Tommy said: “Who knows? It’s possible. We got a stadium tour next summer, so it’s always a possibility. I never say never.”
Latest MÖTLEY CRÜE studio album, Saints of Los Angeles, was released in June, 2008.
