NIKKI SIXX ACCEPTS TOMMY LEE’S RESIGNATION:
November 9, 2007
Rocker Nikki Sixx has confirmed Tommy Lee is no longer a member of reunited rockers Motley Crue following a showdown between the two bandmates.
Lee announced his resignation from the band earlier this year after falling out with Sixx and fellow bandmates Vince Neil and Mick Mars, after the trio joined forces to take the drummer’s manager Carl Stubner to court, accusing him of persuading the rocker to choose two TV reality shows over a lucrative Motley Crue tour.
The trio claimed Stubner’s actions and Lee’s appearances on Tommy Lee Goes To College and Rock Star: Supernova cost them a small fortune and severly damaged the band’s reputation. They are currently suing Stubner for lost earnings.
Lee quit the group in September, before changing his mind a day later and issuing a statement that he was still a Motley Crue member.
But now Sixx has revealed he has asked the drummer to leave the band – and Lee agreed to quit for good.
The guitarist says, “He’s out of the band, that’s just the way it is. Tommy Lee kept f—ing around and I said, `You know what dude, you’ve got to knock it off’. He said, `I f—ing quit.’ I said, `Fine, I still love you, but I don’t have time for this.'”
