Here’s not one but two more annoying stories about Tommy Lee, the most annoying sell-out of the moment, both broken by Headbangers Blog: first of all, the douche claims he’s not out of Motley Crue:

“I am a founding member of Motley Crue. Based on internal band issues aired publicly, my future with the band is uncertain. I have tried to meet with my bandmates repeatedly without success but have informed them that I’m not walking away from my band of 25 years. It troubles me that the current legal issues which were filed by the corporations against my personal manager are separating us and causing more dysfunction. I hope we can work this out amongst ourselves.”

This is suspiciously reminiscent of when Vince Neil left the band for one album in the 90s: to this day, Neil claims he was fired, and Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars all swear he quit. But all I know this is: if your band just put out a statement saying you quit, whether you did or not, chances are you’re no longer in the band regardless of how you feel about it.

Of course, you can’t really blame the band for refusing to meet with him: he’s fucking annoying. And at this point, I imagine that Motley Crue is very much like Aerosmith, Kiss, Poison, and every other band that should probably just call it a day but keeps going on for love of cash and sex with porn stars – it’s a business, not a friendship.

But then there’s also this retaliation from Kid Rock for the whole “pebble” thing:

“I mean, let me tell you this much — the last contact I had with this loser… was when me and Pam [Anderson] were going through our divorce. He picks up her [Blackberry] and starts e-mailing me how much of a bitch I am, and this that and the other, and I calmly told him, ‘Listen, I will see you again.’ I said, ‘You know this has nothing to do with you.’ And that was the end of it [for a while]… I was trying to figure out why is this 45-year-old man, who’s not involved with the show, who doesn’t have an album coming out, who has nothing to promote, even sitting through this garbage… I go to those things because I have my album coming out October 9, so I’m trying to promote that. Other than that, I don’t want to go sit through Britney Spears lip synching and some kid dancing and lip synching.”

Wow. Say what you will about Kid Rock, but he really does come out looking like the winner here. Let’s all thank Tommy Lee for being such an ass clown that he makes Kid Rock look cool.
