I saw the show a few weeks ago. It was my second time seeing the tour. The sound was great. Not nearly as loud and blurred out as the first time I saw it. If you have not seen it and you are a fan, it is well worth seeing. I would go again if I could.

I heard that Tommy got the idea for the spinning kit from seeing a basement tape on MTV by a MLPS band Chameleon, featuring Charlie Adams on 4 piece kit with a half horse motor. And a helmet. Can you confirm?

As is so often the case, Buddy Rich was the inspiration.

Max here!!Greetings to all at this forum!! The thread is very interesting, read with pleasure..

hey Steve, thanx for all info you posted here, it's AWESOME!

The question which has interested me, since then, when I for the first time have heard the Crue: what was the depth and material of snare drums Tommy used in the end of 80th beginnin 90th? please tell me if you know...i saw some live concert videos where he played huge, 14x12 inches or more, marching drum placed instead of snare drum. is it true?

And when, at last, the Crue will attend Russia?


Thanx in advance, cheers!....

Wow!
Last night the Cruë was in Québec city! What an amazing show... THAT'S intertainment!

I have a question for tleetech... I want to know why you switched cymbals in a middle of a song? I have see ''probably'' you came on stage 2 or 3 times during the show to switch a cymbal, is that that Tommy hit so hard that cymbal breaks in the middle of the show or is it for a subtil change of sound?

Once again, what a show!!!

Ohhh... and the idea for TOMMY to spin came to him in a dream he says... he knew it had kind of been done by Buddy, but was not a source of inspiration.

Yo,
I want to know if the lack of reaction from the crowd have disapointed Tommy in Québec city? At some moment, Tommy has try to make the crowd react but the language difference has seems to make everything harder...

P.S. Excuse my really bad english... I'm a french canadian too after all.

Are Crue planning on coming back to London Ontario Canada, or close by? If so I'll gladly share a bottle with Tommy at one of our fine adult entertainment facilities.

Hey Steve, thanks a lot for answering so many of these questions. You've answered a lot of questions that I've had, and there isn't really much left over to ask but I'll ask anyway:

1.) How does Tommy keep hands in good condition during touring? How does he prevent himself from getting cuts, blisters, and breaks in the skin on his thumbs and fingers, and if these do occur how does he take care of them? I'm not sure if you'll know, but it's a question I've been wondering with professional touring drummers for months.

2.) Also, since he's such a hard hitter; does he go through cymbals often?

I was also going to ask how you remember the placement of everything on his set to his preference, but I'm pretty sure that has been answered before.

Hopefully you can get the time to answer my questions!

Thanks.

^^^^^
Hope this helps, for the angles and placement question, I asked Steve earlier, this is what he said:

I orginally got all the right angles by having Tommy sit down at the kit(we were on a rental kit for all the publicity dates[12/04-1/05]) and get everything in a comfortable place. I measured the height of all the cymbals, toms, etc. from the ground to the titler or rim. All the settings were secured with memory locks at every adjustment. When we were getting ready to start the tour(1/05), I designed the "Red, White & Chrome" kit based around these measurements. I used the same method building the "Dog In A Blender" kit. As far as getting everything completely dialed in every show- it took at least a good two weeks worth of shows to get everything the way he liked it without any incidents... It was pretty stressful early on.
2) Tommy is very specific when it comes to placement of everything on the kit as well as all the electronics settings. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the latest samples and was very involved when we were creating the ddrum sounds for the main kit as well as the flying techno kit.

Yeah but I would think use grip tape on his sticks would cause for more blisters since if there is any open skin rubbing against that rough surface it would cause for them to form.
Or is there some kind of special grip tape he uses?

Steve, Thanks for taking the time for us! Got a cymbal durability question.

It's time to replace some 1970's Avedis Zildjians, which has been holding up best/longest for you, the 19" mediums or the 18" projections? I hit 'em hard too, so it would be great to get some input from a cymbal punisher. LOL

Also: How does Tommy keep the fun in playing? Or does it become just a JOB when you play as many datesa year as he does?

Later,
Dick

PS: I may be over in Tulsa later this month to catch the show & do some photography if I can get lined up with the promoter. I'll stop by & say howdy!

The drum solo last night was rewritten in a few spots. Other than that, we haven't launched anything else yet... Thanks to Shane(Vibra Slap'd) for answering questions when I'm offline for a few days. I'll try to be back on soon!!!

Like Steve said, the band is faced with a tough touring schedule right now. I know Steve misses spending more time here... and I know he will, when the tour is over in April..... hell I dont get get to chat with him much anymore!!! LOL

As far as the Cymbal question..... the 19in Z medium seems to take the biggest beating b/c of the location on the kit and amount of use. But the 18" projection is a close second. I would say... it's a wash....I would say that he breaks 1 of those 2 cymbals every 2-3 shows the others seem to last a bit longer. And the Hi-Hat takes a bad beating as well. Steve always has an extra top hi-hat (which is really a bottom) in a clutch and ready to drop on.

Tommy crushs all of his gear... the cowbell I have is completely wasted. Steve will have Tommy hit one side for a show or two, then flip it over and use the other side. It is almost crushed closed before he takes it out of the line-up. The Ahead sticks can also deliver quite a beating....

Let's all hope Steve and T finish up strong on the tour.... here are the remaining dates.... if you are near by.... GO HEAR THAT DRUMSET! Tommy, Motley and Steve, will not let you down!!!

First let me say that I thought I was going out on a limb when I wrote to Steve and asked if there was anyway my son and I could attend sound check or some other more private event other than the concert at Richmond ( we already had 2nd row seats ). He responded within hours to say he would call me on the day of the show to see if he could work something out. Waiting anxiously all day Saturday we never heard from Steve, as excited as we were we figured he's just a busy man. Immediately after the concert we saw Steve moving trap cases over to the drums, after screaming his name a couple of times he came over to us, apologized for not calling and said he was short on help and asked if we could come up and give him a hand tearing everything down. My son and I put Tommy’s’ cymbals and hardware away and I got to put the 32" kick in its case. Wow!

Steve, what you did for us Saturday night may not have meant anything to you, but it meant everything to us!
Thanks, you're a cool guy!

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! See Steve is the man!!! I even offered to help in Richmond!!!!!! He said he was ok.....

Just so you know, there is no sound check with the band, the tech's all do line checks on the gear and thats it. With todays computerized sound boards, they get most of the levels they need in rehearsals and then tweak them for each arena.

That 32" kick is a monster.... but all and all it's pretty light.... Glad Steve hooked ya!!!

I know Steve is on his way to Mexico right now.....

I don't think that Tommy would be willing to "share" his trigger sounds..... but if you read back, you'll see that Steve "makes" his samples via Quicktime.... You should be able to grab some files like Tommy's and dump them into your sampling unit....

I appreciate the attention to my schedule, but I am available to answer questions anywhere in the world. I will not be able to give MotleyKid the exact samplesI use, but I can explain how it is done. As Shane explained above, I do create the samples from SoundDesigner II files then export them to Quicktime and then dump them into my ddrum3 via S/PDIF and sample them real time into the onboard sampler. All of the sounds for Tommy, specifically the Wildside "pipe" and Girls "chopper" sounds are taken directly off the master tapes that I have copies of. Any other questions, hit me up; I'm always available for you guys!!!!!!!! Peace out from Mexico City!

Waiting anxiously all day Saturday we never heard from Steve, as excited as we were we figured he's just a busy man. Immediately after the concert we saw Steve moving trap cases over to the drums, after screaming his name a couple of times he came over to us, apologized for not calling and said he was short on help and asked if we could come up and give him a hand tearing everything down. My son and I put Tommy’s’ cymbals and hardware away and I got to put the 32" kick in its case. Wow!

Steve, what you did for us Saturday night may not have meant anything to you, but it meant everything to us!
Thanks, you're a cool guy!

Carl & Corey (Corey said thanks again for the sticks!)
I'm really gald we got to meet up; thanks for getting my attention! :) Hope you enjoyed the experience!! Much Love! Steevo

Wow, what a brilliant thread!

Hi Steve. Just wondering wether you and Motley Crue will be making an appearance at Download Festival, England in June? Fair enough if you can't tell me as there's no official announcement, but just thought it would be one hell of an addition to the bill. Sorry this wasn't about drumming, but just thought I'd be cheeky and ask.

Thanks alot, and keep up the good work mate.

I haven't heard anything yet about us playing Download. I think the only gig we have across the pond right now is the show in Dublin on June 6th. I'll let you know if I hear anything! Late!

I read this on another forum:

******************************

"After playing multiple MÖTLEY CRÜE shows wearing a brace and taking anti-inflamatory injections, drummer Tommy Lee's doctor instructed him to give his injured right hand wrist a break after his tendonitis made it difficult for him to perform. Tendonitis is a common and painful injury for drummers who pound the skins with great force. MÖTLEY CRÜE has played to over a million fans this year in over 100 shows of their wildly successful Carnival of Sins tour.

MÖTLEY CRÜE will have another drummer covering Tommy Lee's shift for tonight's (April 5) performance at the Enmax Center in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada: Harvey Warren, drummer of the local Canadian band, BRÖKEN TÖYZ (web site), who cover MÖTLEY CRÜE songs in their show every week.

Instead of canceling their show, MÖTLEY CRÜE decided to give a fan a chance and share the wealth of rock stardom, reaching out to the drummer after a reference from the House of Blues promoter. Drummer/vocalist Harvey Warren spends his day managing a local Starbucks and moonlights for the rock tribute band BRÖKEN TÖYZ as well as serving as a founding member of Calgary band ONE NINE HUNDRED. When called by the promoter of the show while working at Starbucks, Harvey thought it was a joke. After some convincing, he realized it was true and accepted, but was sworn to secrecy. He immediately left work and told his coworkers, "Something happened that will change my life but I can't tell you until tomorrow!" "I'm scared to death," said Warren, "but this is a chance of a lifetime." "

********************************

Wow! Really? And, more importantly, where does the line form?

Hi Steve! Greetings from Russia. Glad to see you here. I saw performance CRUE in Moscow in 1989. It was cool, especially when Tommy has crushed the drums. Recently I have bought CARNIVAL OF SINS DVD. A unforgettable show.
I have question, if possible: you sometime played with Tommy a duet? If played, what songs, or solo? As about arrival Crue to Russia for the show?
Transfer Tommy, that Tommyland - an excellent album. One of my faworite last time.

Thank you,
Sasha
