It's the end of an era for Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. The band wrapped their most recent tour with a gig at Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City on Saturday night (May 25), and the show also marked the final appearance of Lee's unique roller coaster drum set.
The guys from Motley Crue have spent the last couple of years hinting that retirement is on the horizon, and bass guitarist Nikki Sixx recently went so far as to say the band would be hanging it up after one more album and tour. But you know how long rock retirements tend to last -- and it looks like Sixx might be leaving himself some room for renegotiation.
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil underwent successful surgery to remove the kidney stones that forced the band's Sunday night (March 10) concert in Sydney, Australia to be cut short so the singer could be rushed to the hospital.
Motley Crue may be enjoying the Australian summer down under at the moment, but the band will return to North America later this spring for more shows. The group recently announced an April-May trek that would take them through Canada, and now they've tacked on a number of U.S. stops to fill out their May itinerary.
All things considered, the last decade has been one of the more stable and harmonious stretches of Motley Crue's career -- which, ironically, might be part of why multiple members have been giving so much thought to laying the group to rest.
There won't be new Motley Crue music coming in 2013, and there may never be another full-length album from the hard-rockers. Vince Neil says there may be an EP in the band's future, but 2014 is as early as that would surface.
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx spent a year tirelessly logging the highs and lows of life as a drug-addled rockstar in his 2007 biography 'The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.' Now the bassist says that year will be recreated on Broadway.
