Tommy Lee talks parties, groupies and keeping Motley Crue insane




Whoever said there are no more wild men hasn't met Tommy Lee.

Sure, the Motley Crue drummer has calmed down a bit since his rock 'n' roll heyday in the '80s and '90s. But as we learned when he chatted with our own Steve Spears and Sean Daly, he still embraces his role as the band's biggest wild man.

"I'm pretty much that guy, you know?" he said. "After the show's over, we usually have a big party in my dressing room 'cause I basically have a club sound system, a huge PA system. Everyone parties and dances around and gets crazy. Yeah, it's always nuts back here."

Motley Crue, Poison and the New York Dolls perform at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa. Tickets are $25-$95. Click here for details.

The interview touched on topics ranging from groupies to Lee's approach to raising his own sons to the Crue's new see-it-to-believe-it stage show. Click here for the full interview with Tommy Lee. And click here to listen to it on their Stuck in the '80s podcast.
