Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee organised a rave for his son Brandon’s 14th birthday last week, which was so well produced that police shut it down, he revealed.
“I bought a huge sound system, lights, Glo-sticks ... The cops came three times and he was so pumped,” Tommy told US TV show Extra, "He was like, 'Dad, this is the coolest thing; my party got closed down by the cops’,” he laughed.
The sometime percussionist for DJs including Erick Morrillo and Adam Freeland became infamous for being one of heavy metal’s most excessive and indulgent celebrities during his Motley Crue heyday moving seamlessly into club culture as the band’s career spluttered in the noughties.
Chatting to Pacha magazine in 2004, he recalled feeling immediately at home the first time he visited London’s Ministry of Sound as he ventured out into mainstream clubland.
“I remember walking in and it was loud as fuck. I saw the sign saying ‘Enter At Your Own Risk’ and I fucking love anything with a sign that says that,” said Tommy, “And, dude, I lost my mind,” he added.
Speaking about his nonstop passion for partying several years later he also revealed an unexpected interest in aquatic party action, this time at home in the grounds of his LA mansion.
“I'm into tropical fish but all that really means is that I like to have sex in the pond in the garden, with the fish swimming round,” he told the Daily Mirror. "It's because the fish come up and suck on you."
Adam Freeland’s producer, Alex Metric, shed a different light on Lee’s at home party antics in 2008, recalling a disappointingly well behaved Independence Day BBQ at the Motley Crue man’s pad.
“There were no Victoria’s Secrets models there as far as I could see, it was just a bit of a family day by the pool hanging out,” Alex told Skrufff, “It was fun though, alas not the tale of rock n roll it could have been. I did meet Pammy (Pamela Anderson) though,” he chuckled.
