Posted by on August 17, 2017

Just last month, we watched kids reacting to Mötley Crüe, hearing them question if the band are boys or girls, among other thoughts.

However, the big draw of the tour (other than a final chance to see the band) is Tommy Lee’s drum roller coaster, known as the “Cruecifly.” The drummer’s […]
