TOMMY LEE: Why I Dropped METHODS OF MAYHEM Moniker
Tommy Lee recently spoke to Allstar about his decision to drop the METHODS OF MAYHEM moniker for his solo project and issue his latest effort, Never A Dull Moment, under his own name.
"My producer, Scott Humphrey, goes, 'Here you are basically trying to start over from the ground up with METHODS OF MAYHEM, when you've put in all this time creating a name for yourself and now you're not gonna use it," Lee told Allstar. "I think you're being stupid.'"
"When we got back from the road in 2000, I started writing and I started hearing the music and said, 'Man, this doesn't sound like METHODS anyway. So I was sitting there pondering over what Scott said and I was like, 'He's right.'"
According to Lee, he would consider doing another METHODS album at some point. "But it'd have to be a creative free-for-all," he says, "pretty much like the first one, but with a different set of guest stars."
Tommy Lee will appear on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, tomorrow, Wednesday, May 22nd.
