Heck, thats what happens when someone is as huge as he is. Kinda like that highschool way of thinking. I have looked at the "ages of most" of the people making the negative comments and they are in thier low 20's or teens. Also they are growing up with a diffent era of drummers too and that has alot to do with taste. If they think that he isn't very good or just medioce.....why aren't they on tour selling out arenas or amphitheaters with thier band? And don't say to me that its a fad, or that thier band hasn't been found yet, or the music industry isn't ready......just simply say...that you and your band are not that good and Tommy Lee and his band are. "Welcome to the world of Motley Crue." 24 years...and still selling out arenas. Why don't you go and see why they are.....you will come back with a different opinon.
I couldn't agree with you more. It gets me how one can go bash someone like TL, especially ones who were in diapers when Motley Crue was in their prime! I've replied before to this thread...in regards to him selling millions of albums and shows.
There are a few drummers that I could care less for, but I'm not going to bash them and say they suck or that they're horrible just because I don't like them. I guess that's just me.
Tommy Lee was a HUGE influence on me growing up and I KNOW that I'm not the only one. He might not have been the world's most technical drummer, but he did what he did best with the Crue and is such a great performer and showman.
That's my opinion (and like I said about him being an influence, I'm not the only one).
