MÖTLEY CRÜE: Video Interview With TOMMY LEE Posted Online

Bluewin VideoTalk conducted an interview with MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee on June 22, 2009 in Wettingen, Switzerland. Watch the chat below.

MÖTLEY CRÜE kicked off Crüe Fest 2, the sophomore outing of the band's summer festival tour, on July 19 in Camden, New Jersey, with support from GODSMACK, THEORY OF A DEAD MAN, DROWNING POOL and the CHARM CITY DEVILS. CRÜE performed its classic 1989 album, "Dr. Feelgood", in its entirety to mark the six-million-selling LP's 20th anniversary.

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx told The Pulse of Radio that playing "Dr. Feelgood" and commemorating its release wasn't originally part of the plan. "We were sitting around and I said, 'Why don't we do one of our records top to bottom?'" he explained. "And the band went, 'That's cool, let's do 'Too Fast For Love',' and someone said, 'Let's do 'Shout At The Devil',' and somebody else said, 'Girls, Girls, Girls', and we really didn't know what — we finally decided that it was gonna be 'Dr. Feelgood', to do it for the first time. But then somebody said, 'Hey, it's been 20 years.' It really looks like a big, like, cool move, right? '20 years later!' But we're not that good."

Crüe Fest 2 will be out all summer, finishing up on September 5 in Darien Center, New York.

The tour is introducing a second stage this year, featuring CAVO, REV THEORY, 16 SECOND STARE and SHRAM. A local act from each city that the tour hits will also be picked to appear on the side stage.
