Motley Crue Icon Reveals Sickness In Hospital Room Video


Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee has announced that he has acute bronchitis, releasing a funny hospital video.

Lee wrote on Instagram, “Didn’t know what the doctor meant when I heard a cute bronchitis? Feelin real cute!!! Thanks Doc! @afshineemrani 💊 💉”

Motley Crue recently released a new song titled “The Dirt (Est. 1981)” with Machine Gun Kelly for the soundtrack of their biopic. Tommy Lee discussed the song in a new Rolling Stone article.

Once they picked which one would be the real, final, officially 100 percent, no-doubts-about-it “The Dirt,” the band reached out to Machine Gun Kelly to see if he’d add some flare to the track. “I’ve been trying to get him on one of my [solo] tracks, and schedules haven’t worked out,” says Lee, who was working on a “sexier, slower” cover of Prince’s “When You Were Mine” for his upcoming project when he spoke to Rolling Stone. “But he got right back to us and jumped on the track. I was like, ‘Fuck, I’ve been trying to get you on one of my tracks forever, dude.’ I’m gonna kick his ass later. But I love it. It came out great.”

For his part, MGK jumped at the chance because he felt the track had “such a vintage Mötley Crüe feel.” He was initially tentative and had told Sixx he’d only do it if it felt right, but he was moved. “I’d told him, ‘I don’t want to rap on here, because I feel like it’s not something a Mötley Crüe fan base would want to hear,’” he tells Rolling Stone. “I remember getting to the studio and taking this approach of this chant, and once I I’d laid it down I brought my boys in to hear it. They had never heard me come off like that on a song. I made sure that this was something that every single person could sing along with, and it felt right and badass.”
