Motley Crue has announced that drummer Tommy Lee has injured one of his hands recently and as such, is currently unable to perform his role as the drummer of the band. A message from the band reads as follows:

"Mötley has always been an interesting animal. The magic is somewhat unstoppable because it is what it is, it’s Mötley. 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 Mötley 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 Mötley Crüe out, but the road crew and everybody else out here whose lives would been effected. Thank you bro.

"As for now, Mötley Crüe is a five-piece band… making history, one injury at a time... hahhaha..."

I like Motley Crue but don't really care for 7dust. However I gotta admit that is really cool of Morgan to do that. He seems like a really cool guy and his wife is f***in' SMOKIN. STAY METAL MY FRIENDS!

Morgans a good drummer, idk if hes played with anyone as big as motley crue before, but even though they are not the band they once were, i think morgan would say it is an opportunity of a lifetime to play with an established band such as MC...even though they are past their prime
