ROB ZOMBIE To Direct MÖTLEY CRÜE's 'The Dirt' Movie

MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee spoke to Billboard.com about the band's upcoming summer headlining tour with support from POISON and NEW YORK DOLLS.

"It's definitely not Crüe Fest. Crüe Fest is, like, five [bands], and this is just the three of us. But it's special because it's another CRÜE tour and it's summertime, man. That's always special."

On NEW YORK DOLLS:

"I'm really excited about the DOLLS. They were in that handful of early inspirations when we were all 17 and 18 years old, looking at their style and their music. So it's cool to go on tour with them."

On rumored rivalry with POISON:

"I never really got into all that...rivalry or feud. Just go up and bang out your tunes, dude. Who cares about anything else? I really don't."

On the film adaptation of the CRÜE's 2002 memoir "The Dirt - Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band", which is now on track with Rob Zombie as its director:

"That would be a cool place to release some new [MÖTLEY CRÜE] music. It gives new reason for new music. People aren't really buying records these days, so it seems like a good place to maybe put something new from us."
