Crüe Ready New Song
Mötley Crüe have recorded a brand new track.
It’s been done at Tommy Lee’s home studio in Calabasis, California, and will be released in time for the band’s summer touring schedule.
Says Nikki Sixx: “Haven’t been in the studio in a few years with the guys and it feels like magic. Hard to explain what it sounds like other than just straight-out sexy… maybe throw some dirt and sarcasm on top, too.”
Meanwhile, Crüe drummer Tommy Lee has settled a lawsuit brought by one of his former assistants.
Lee has agreed to pay Michael Sullivan $400,000 and will also issue a public apology.
Sullivan launched legal action against the Lee at the tail-end of 2011, claiming he had to be “on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week” during his six years working for the tub-thumper, but did not receive remuneration for any overtime.
Sullivan also alleged Lee made unathorised deductions from his wages.
When Sullivan moved into Lee’s home to be closer to the drummer and his family, the suit said, Lee charged $1,000 a month for rent.
Lee apparently continued making deducations from Sullivan’s wage-packet, even during the last six months of the latter’s employment, when he was no longer living at Lee’s house.
