Larry Rodgers of The Arizona Republic recently conducted an interview with MTLEY CRE drummer Tommy Lee. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.The Arizona Republic: How do you feel as you start to wind down your 40s? Tommy: It's so just like a number to me. It's bizarre. My oldest son is about to turn 15, and he was born, it feels like, just a couple small years ago. It's a clich, but when you're having fun, the time definitely does fly. The craziest thing is, I feel like I'm 14. The Arizona Republic: Has drumming kept you in shape or do you work out? Tommy: I work out in the gym, too. I go in spurts. I get bored, and I'll do something else or play drums. I work hard, and I play hard. I put one of those pedometers on my ankle one day because I was (wondering) after a 90-minute or two-hour show what this equated to if I was jogging. I took the thing off after a show, and it said 13 miles. So if there are any toxins in my body prior to the show, it's safe to say they are gone after the set. The Arizona Republic: You did a reality show ("Tommy Lee Goes to College") and have appeared on a few other TV series, including "Californication". Is acting a long-term goal? Tommy: I try to pick and choose the things that are cool. The things I've done have been either music-driven or things I haven't experienced yet. You have to be careful with this TV stuff. It can get real cheesy real quick if you don't watch what you're doing. Read the entire interview from The Arizona Republic.
