Motley's coping with a Crue cut
Friday, July 2, 1999

By ED CONDRAN
Special to The Record

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx doesn't speak in endearing tones when the subject is Pamela Anderson Lee, the actress and on-again, off-again wife of former Crue drummer Tommy Lee.

"Tommy's old lady doesn't really like me or any of us," Sixx said by phone from his home studio in Los Angeles. "Me and Tommy could never figure it out."

After spending 18 years behind the Crue drum kit, Lee has left the rock-and-roll circus for one of the world's most popular pinups and their children. The lanky, tattooed percussionist, who quit the band in April, will continue to make music. Sixx said Lee's new work will be dramatically different from the Crue's metallic, three-chord rock.

"Tommy is set on going in a different direction," Sixx said. "This whole thing was so surprising and disappointing. I know he's been through a lot of drama and trauma with his family and he wants to make that work and that's fine. He doesn't want to play rock music anymore and that's fine. He wants to make dance music and hip-hop. He also might make an album like Limp Bizkit, but that's not rock-and-roll.

"I'm not going to stop him because we're friends. I don't want to make him tour and record with us and make him hate us. He can sit home and make a Korn-sounding record if that makes him happy. If his old lady doesn't want him on the scene with us, that's fine.

Sixx, isn't ready to shut the door on Lee, who is still featured in the band's publicity photos.

"You never know what's going to happen," Sixx said. "We've all had great years and great memories with Tommy. We love working with him. In the end, if the thing with the woman doesn't work out they always come back to the band."

In the interim, the Crue, which reunited with vocalist Vince Neil in 1997, is on tour with new drummer Randy Castillo.

"Randy wants to rock-and-roll," Sixx said. "He's a perfect fit for us. He's going to help make this upcoming tour great."

The Crue's jaunt, which is primarily composed of the band's hits, stops tonight at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. Sixx is excited because he believes the general public is ready to re-embrace rock-and-roll rendered by groups that know how to entertain onstage.

"I think people are sick of the [alternative] bands that got so big during the early Nineties," Sixx said. "When you look back at these bands that came along, they just did the opposite of what we do. Their idea was to bore everyone to tears. Watching these bands was like watching paint dry. Screaming Trees. Please!

"Now I think rock-and-roll is about to get cool again and Motley Crue is right there. ... You hear people say, 'Hey man, your rock-and-roll is dumb.' Who said it's supposed to be anything but that? Rock is a boxing match with guitars. ... It's not reinventing the wheel. Let the Chemical Brothers reinvent the wheel. There are only so many notes you can play and we play enough of them."

By October, the Crue will release a live album titled "Entertainment or Death." The group, which also includes guitarist Mick Mars, hopes to finish a studio disc by early next year. Both titles will be released on the band's Motley Records.

"It's a golden time for us," Sixx said. "We have our label. We own our masters. ... It's all coming together for us. That's what I tried to tell Tommy, but he's off on his own trip. While he's doing what he's doing we're making some incredible things happen."

but all in all the decision to leave Motley Crue was because of little miss priss Pam! If they ever broke up(for good) I'm sure Tommy would love to come back!

Your wrong!.........I left for creative reasons!

Hey Nikki!!

I have a great Idea!...........If you don't have anything good to say, Please don't say it! You and your wife have no good reason to be talking with forked tounges. Maybe just stick to talking about yourselves, Or saying no comment!! You and the rest of the world don't know what kind of Hybrid record i'm making. It's all your opinion, not fact!! You and your wife are the last people on the planet i would expect this from.

Thanks
Tommy
