Motley Crue‘s infamous founding member and drummer Tommy Lee was no doubt letting loose a primal scream in which he nearly met his demise! In a new interview with Classic Rock Magazine, the Motley Crue bad boy described what the most dangerous situation he was ever in. A big name singer accused a Motley Crue member of dying recently.
Lee ended up telling up a story about how he was on a skydiving trip and, with his instructor mid-dive and how his parachute tangled and nearly ended his life until things were properly put under control. This Motley Crue icon was caught smoking this awful drug.
“This is something you don’t want to hear when you’re skydiving. I’m doing a tandem dive, I’m strapped to an instructor, he’s on my back with the parachute, and I hear ‘OH FUCK!’ I look up and the chute is tangled, he’s yanking and struggling with the ropes, and I think, ‘This is it, I’m fucked, it’s over.’ But I had this spiritual experience where I thought, ‘There’s nothing I can do, I’m just gonna enjoy this freefall until I hit the ground.’ And once I let go, the thing went up. Not cool.” A rumored Motley Crue reunion performance was detailed a few days ago.
