TOMMY LEE: Rolling Stone Q&A Posted Online

MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee recently took part in a question-and-answer session with Rolling Stone magazine. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:

Rolling Stone: Have you ever done a huge rail of coke off your snare drum?

Tommy Lee: "Not off the snare, but I used to fill up a beer cap to the brim and smash the fucker into my nose and play the last two songs of an encore. Definitely."

Rolling Stone: Who's the best producer in hip-hop?

Tommy Lee: "Rick Rubin produced '99 Problems' — the raddest hip-hop track ever. And Timbaland did MISSY ELLIOTT's 'Lose Control', and that's a fucking bangin' track. I've talked to Missy about making some beats: 'Just let me wail on some drums — we could make the fucking sickest shit ever.' We're working on that."

Rolling Stone: Your new CD is cheap: $9.99. Do you think that albums, in general, are a rip-off?

Tommy Lee: "I can't even remember the last time I went to a record store. I've spent a lot of money on iTunes — got my credit card up there and I just keep clicking. I'm so sick of buying records for two good songs."

Rolling Stone: What have you downloaded lately?

Tommy Lee: "There's this new band called FALL OUT BOY. I like them. Some SIGUR ROS. And ANNA NALICK's song 'Breathe' — I think the lyrics are genius."

Rolling Stone: What's the most insane thing you've seen looking into the audience on this current CRÜE tour?

Tommy Lee: "Every night we have the Titty Cam, where all these girls get their fucking titties out. That doesn't suck. But Nikki [Sixx] will get the whole crowd to sit down and say, 'Take a good look around. This is what it looks like at a CREED concert.' Then he says, 'On the count of three, I want everyone to jump up and lose their fucking minds!' When they get up, it's the craziest thing I've ever seen. Fucking bananas."
