What did you do on New Year’s Eve? Probably made out with someone at midnight and threw up around 2am, right? If you’re Motley Crue, you played your final show together. More specifically, if you’re drummer Tommy Lee, you got suspended upside down during your final drum solo, then finished the show without the rest of the band you’ve been in for 34 years saying goodbye to each other. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lee spoke about the final show, saying that the only member of the band he’s spoken to since their final show is guitarist Mick Mars:
after the final night, we had a big party backstage on New Year’s Eve, and I never saw the other guys. We never even said “goodbye.” Fucking strange as hell, dude. I mean, what the fuck?
Even worse than that, Lee says that the following day, Nikki Sixx unfollowed him on Twitter. Even though the band had a lack of camaraderie, they do have Motley Crue: The End showing in theaters on June 14th before it makes its way to home video later in the year. As for Lee’s work post-Crue, he said he’s been working on new music that’s more EDM-focused, and has been remixing stuff for other artists:
My plan was to take a year off and just chill the fuck out. I remember my fiancée going, “Dude. There’s no way you’re gonna sit around for a year.” And she’s right. I’ve been doing some remixes for some artists and I’ve been down there in my studio writing stuff. I didn’t even get close to a year. I can’t sit still.
As for the other Crue members, Sixx is busy with Sixx:AM, Mars is working on a solo album and Vince Neil hasn’t gotten arrested lately, so we can assume he’s doing ok for himself as well. The whole interview is an interesting read if you’re a fan of Motley and are interested in their (lack of) group dynamic.
