Tommy Lee Posts Open Letter Where He Berates Motley Crue Fans For Taking Photos Of The Band
Post by: Gleeso’s Rock News 2 July, 2012 – 2:25 PM
Oh Tommy Lee, what have thou done now. The Motley Crue drummer has lit the fuse on rock stars and their right to privacy, giving it to Motley fans who keep hassling him for photos.

As you can read in the rant below, the normally life-lovin dude, posting a no-holds-barred, 500-word rant on the official Motley Crue Facebook page saying he loves his fans, but doesn’t owe them a thing.

Tommy Lee’s Open LetterDear Fans,

I f***ing LOVE my fans! And you know this!!!… If you asked anyone that knows me really well they would tell ya the same thing… Tommy loves his fans. He lives for this s**t… he eats, breaths, s**ts music 24/7.

They’ll also probably tell ya that he’s a down to earth grateful life lovin dude and a nice guy too. What I have a problem with is… Taking pictures! I hate it! Irritates the f*** out of me when people say… you owe it to your fans, they put you where you are, etc etc!

I certainly don’t owe anybody anything! When I bought all my Led Zeppelin records and concert tickets I didn’t say “one day these fuckers are gonna owe me a picture” It’s the least they can do for me!… wtf people? You don’t admire something so that it can give back… You just cherish it!

And to those who say..you should be grateful that people wanna take your picture maybe one day they wont want it!…. That day can’t come soon enough! BTW..’I’m not here to take pictures with you, I’m here to entertain you!

Nobody put me where I am but ME! They may have helped inspire me with their love for what I do… but I put myself right here where I want to be with a lot of hard work, practice, talent, luck, etc. What I do owe myself and others is being THE BEST I can be! And that’s making great music, being a good man, father, lover and human being! We all owe that kinda stuff to ourselves and each other.

People do we really need a silly picture?… For what bragging rights? Really?.. Who f***ing cares! Someones not gonna believe you if ya don’t have the proof pic?… then f***k em! I’d never go up to someone that I admired and bug them for a picture!! Why!

I might say a quick hello… maybe a handshake? I dunno, it depends on the “situation”. Most people never consider the “situation”. That’s really important. Ya wouldn’t wanna handshake standing at the pisser in the mens bathroom next to me would ya? And Yes that’s happened to me too.

Or when your (sic) eating a nice quite (sic) meal with your family some rude jackass comes up and asks for a picture! You can’t even imagine what kinda crazy has happened to me.

I understand the excitement and all but just take a second and think… Is this cool right now? It’s called Consciousness; it’s the quality or state of being aware of an external object or something within oneself. Be Conscious.

So like I said.. The fastest way to get me to leave is whip out a camera! Maybe just say hello and I’ll probably take ya home with me! Well I’d have to ask my girlfriend first! Hah!

Sincerely yours,
The Picture Taker Hater!
Tommy Lee

Ed was so cool when I met him in 98 photos & signed everyone’s stuff.No one was pushing for stuff too hard and he was great.

As Ed has said before he is a musician not a Rockstar and Tommy has always thought he was a ROCKSTAR.

As I Tweeted to Tommy if it was a chick with her tits and arse out he’d stop for a photo no worries…

Taking a little bit of time for the people who support you and letting them take a picture is the sign of a cool star. Fair enough if they are eating wait until they are finished but they should never forget the fans. We don’t own Eddie but he does stop for pictures. Tommy is a BIG COCK as we all know

I agree with Tommy.
Outside of the show, let him be. Let the guy live his life. Dont just wip out the camera and expect it. Ask his permission and if he refuses, get over it.
He creates music and does a show. He (and all musicians) owe the fans nothing. We buy the album, we buy the tickets. They create the album, they perform a show. End of deal.

Fuck him. Complaining about people loving you.. it must be hard. He needs to realize being the drummer in motley crue is no big fucking deal – I could replace him.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

Anytime I see or read anything to do with Tommy Lee, all I can think about is his porn flick with Pam Anderson.

Driving his boat, butt naked in the middle of the day on Lake Mead and honking the horn with his cock…..that’s some “Rockstar” attitude right there. LOL…

If he can’t stop for a second ,not when he is eating or with family and do a quick photo or sign something for fans who have supported him for years and paid for his life style that is complete bullshit.Rock star ego shit.

You could replace him on drums, but could you compete with the 3rd leg????

Seeing that his cock is full of hepatitis C, I don’t blame him for asking for help! Or at the very least…latex gloves! :mrgreen:
