Motley Crüe Drummer Says Albums Are Over
Erstwhile rock pig Tommy Lee has revealed that not only is the band working on the soundtrack for a much anticipated film version of their notorious biography The Dirt, but he’s not that keen on the idea of albums anymore, let alone Motley Crüe making one.
He’s spoken out against the traditional idea of the full length album, saying “To tell you the truth, I think the days of making a record, for me personally, are over. After this last Methods [of Mayhem – his side project] 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 at a time and release them. If you want to call them singles, great, whatever; or at its maximum, an EP, four songs, done, boom.”
He goes on to say “I just really feel like the days of the entire record are long gone…Maybe it’s my child-like short attention span, but I’m not a fan of that long, drawn-out f—ing album anymore. I don’t think most people are; if you look at sales most people are buying songs at a time and they’re just not really buying records. That’s just a sign of the times. There’s so much more out there to play with that grabbing anybody’s attention and keeping it there for an hour and a half, good luck.”
He’s also given fans who are busily losing weight in the hope of fitting in to their old leather trousers some clues as to what they might be able to expect on the band’s upcoming Australian tour. He’s be playing a 360 degree rotating drum kit, and also expects to be bringing out all the hits for a whole new generation of fans, who will be able to vote for which songs they want to see played in an online vote. The final word, however, ladies, is that he expects to see plenty of exposed tits. Lee says “I’m sure there’ll be a lot of exposed breasts. Those are always a nice bonding experience, something we can all share, kind of like luggage.”
