Tommy Lee Caught Faking Motley Crue Performance?


Tommy Lee was allegedly recently caught using backing vocals. A video clip has emerged from Motley Crue‘s 19 July concert in Kansas City, Missouri. Recently, Guns N’ Roses were noted to be using backing tracks and Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho talked about the matter.

Fans noted Tommy Lee using backing tracks

One thing that caught fans’ eyes is that while heading into “Looks That Kill,” Tommy Lee started playing before he even sat behind the kit.

One fan commented on the video: “Is it me, or did the track start playing before Tommy ever sat down?.. something seems a little fishy here.”

Other fan also added: “I know they admitted to using tapes in the past but was unaware to what extent. This is damning IMO. I’m for some enhancing of a song live with some effects, but to basically play a backing track as they play along to it is just flat out wrong!!”

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee recently expressed his gratitude for the assistance he received. He was spotted with Harrisburg police and also the mayor Wanda Williams.

Motley Crue are back at full strength, as drummer Tommy Lee played his first full set with the band on “The Stadium Tour” after performing portions of previous shows while playing through broken ribs. Tommy Lee had defied doctor’s orders — despite sustaining four broken ribs — to take part in his band’s long-awaited return to the stage with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and The Blackhearts. He had also scared the fans with one of his jokes recently.

Lee was able to take on the full 15-song set after recently upping the amount he had played at a previous stop. This past Saturday (June 25), the drummer added “The Dirt (Est. 1981),” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Primal Scream” and “Kickstart My Heart” to the songs he performed during a show in Philadelphia, but last night (June 28), Lee made it through the full performance for the first time on the tour.
