Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee Prefers Not To Make Anymore Albums

Drummer Tommy Lee insists he’d be perfectly fine if Motley Crue never released another new album, saying “the days of making records are over.”

“[It’s] a group decision, but … I think it’s just a waste of time, it really is,” explains Lee to Noisecreep. “I don’t listen to anybody’s full record anymore and when I did, I don’t think I listened to the whole record. I’m sorry, and I don’t care who it is, if it’s the Beatles, I can’t listen to an hour and a half of anybody straight. So, I guess that’s just my personal preference.” (editor’s note: we presume he’s talking about the “White Album.”)

He adds that that the most recent album he put out with his group Methods of Mayhem may be the last one he makes. “After this last Methods record I did, I’ll never make another full record, I think. It’s a waste of time cause people can only ingest a song at a time, so why not make bitching songs … and release them [one at a time].”

Lee says that if Motley Crue record again, the next time they lay down new tracks will likely be for the oft-delayed biopic on the band, ‘The Dirt.’ “[I think] our plan now is to hold off on new music until ‘The Dirt,’ for the movie, which I think would be really a cool place to rip out some new music,” divulges Lee.

As previously reported, Lee debuted his 360-degree vertical roller-coaster drum setup at Motley Crue’s North American tour kickoff in Dallas. The trek, which also features Poison and the New York Dolls, runs through a gig in Chula Vista, Calif., on Aug. 17.
