It seems these days he is just a has-been, because he does less drumming.And Motley Crue just seems like an oldies review, have you ever seen a picture of those guys?Man, they look 10 years older than they should.But thats just my opinion.
Someone's ability to read music does not AT ALL determine whether or not they are a good musician. Many good musicians can't read music. Tommy Lee has achieved a lot of sucess and done a lot (including Pam Anderson on tape), and though i don't listen to Motley Crue (or TL's music) I couldn't say he's a bad musician.
TL is a lot of things, but he is most certainly NOT a has-been. Look at Vanilla Ice....that's a has-been.
