Tommy Lee, the founding member of the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, recently made an appearance at Sunday’s UFC 269 pay-per-view that took place at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. He thanked the UFC President Dana White but he was seemingly dissatisfied with the seats he got.
Here is what his caption read:
“TH🙏🏻NKS @danawhite for the shitty seats for @ufc fights tonight 💪🏻O💪🏻! What a night!”

Nikki Sixx sheds praise on Mötley Crüe bandmates
Nikki Sixx spoke highly of each of his Mötley Crüe bandmates in a recent interview, but took special care to flatter frontman Vince Neil. Sixx was asked by Classic Rock magazine to consider which of the Mötley Crüe co-founders was the best musician. The bassist noted that each of his bandmates’ unique talents played a part in making the band so successful.
“They’re all really f—ing good,” Sixx said. “Tommy [Lee] is a monster on drums. Mick [Mars] is one of my favorite guitar players. And Vince has something that nobody else has. Isn’t that what you’re looking for — guys that don’t sound like anybody else? I’m not a great player. Like, if I really woodshed for six months, I’m okay. But if I was a different kind of bass player, it would offset the sound of the band.”
Sixx also noted that lineup alterations in the band’s past proved that Mötley Crüe just isn’t the same without the members of its original lineup. Returning to his singer, he added that he and Neil brought the best out of one another with their songwriter/singer relationship.
