MOTLEY CRUE bassist Nikki Sixx has issued the following update:
"Motley has always been an interesting animal. The magic is somewhat unstoppable because it is what it is, it's Motley. An incongruous mixture to quote my digital dictionary. Even when accidents happen, we pull it together, even if only by pulling a horseshoe outta our Motley ass.
So to get to the point, yes Tommy (Lee, drummer) messed up his hand pretty bad, and yes accidents do happen and yes frustration does happen to everybody including Tommy who would rather play drums (even with a damaged hand) than just about anything in the whole world. But following doctor's orders for a few shows is what we have to do right now ( or cancel shows ). We all wanna say we're sorry Tommy has to sit out a couple shows, But we hope to have him back up on the drums ASAP. Until then, he is at all the shows, jumping around, helping out with vocals and playing piano ever so lightly on 'Home Sweet Home'.
Now to the hero of the day... Mr. Morgan Rose, the monstrous drummer from SEVENDUST. Morgan flew out with only minutes to go before there were no flights left from Atlanta. He came charging in like a knight in shining armor, drum pedals and sticks in hand, stepping onstage and pretty much nailing the show top to bottom first time out. I think Morgan needs a standing ovation for his dedication to kicking ass and helping not only Motley Crue out, but the road crew and everybody else out here whose lives would been effected. Thank you bro.
As for now, Motley Crue is a five-piece band... making history, one injury at a time... hahhaha..."
