Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee performed with broken ribs

The long-awaited Mötley Crüe return from retirement finally happened in Atlanta, Georgia last June 16 and even with broken ribs, the legendary drummer Tommy Lee (59) performed with the band. The musician was able to play “Wild Side”, “Shout At The Devil”, “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)”, “Saints Of Los Angeles” and “Too Fast For Love”and then he was replaced by Tommy Clufetos (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath). After playing the songs he told the crowd why he wouldn’t be able to perform the entire show (Transcribed by Blabbermouth).


During the band’s last performance on June 18 in Miami, Florida, the musician played “Wild Side”, “Shout At The Devil”, “Too Fast For Love” and “Home Sweet Home” (Playing the piano).

The Stadium tour also has Def Leppard, Joan Jett and Poison.

“Okay, well, anyway, what I’ve gotta tell you is about 14 days ago, I fuckin’ broke not one, not two, not three, but four fuckin’ ribs right here. I wish I had a fuckin’ badass story, like me and Connor McGregor fuckin’ scrapping out in some fuckin’ bar or something. But I don’t.”

“Anyway, I hope you guys have a fucking great time. And my boy Tommy Clufetos back here, he’s gonna help me get through this. ‘Cause the doctors told me, ‘No playing, bro. No playing.’ And I was like, ‘Are you fucking high, bro? We’ve got a fucking tour to do.’ So anyway, I ain’t fuckin’ sitting out for shit. My boy’s gonna help me out here, and I’ll see you guys later. On with the goddamn show.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
