Tommy Lee is no fan of President Donald Trump. The MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer, who is believed to be working on a new solo project, took to his Twitter account earlier today (Monday, December 11) to write: “Our president is a fucking idiot and fuck all you dickheads who voted for him!”
Lee admitted in a 2008 interview with CNN that he was not a political junkie and he rarely watched television or listened to news reports. “Man, tell you the truth, I only listen to music,” he said.
In 2015, MÖTLEY CRÜE completed “The Final Tour”, closing the book on the band’s iconic career after performing a total of 164 shows in 72 markets, grossing over $100 million.
To cement the sense of finality, the four members of MÖTLEY CRÜE in 2014 publicly signed a “cessation of touring” contract that prevents any of them from performing under the CRÜE name in the future.
Tommy told Rolling Stone last year that his new solo music would be more electro-focused. “There will definitely be electronic frequencies going down, for sure,” he said. “Once you’ve had that, you can’t go back.”
Lee first got into electronic music back in 2000 and started DJing in 2004.
MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s last studio album was 2008’s “Saints Of Los Angeles”, which was followed by a 2009 “Greatest Hits” compilation.
A tour film about MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s final shows, “The End”, came out last year, and a film adaptation of the band’s 2001 autobiography “The Dirt” is said to be in negotiations to land at Netflix.
Our president is a fucking idiot and fuck all you dickheads who voted for him!
