Some MOTLEY CRUE fans have interpreted the following posting from bassist Nikki Sixx to imply that former drummer Tommy Lee will be returning to the group's fold once the band resumes activities in mid-2003. You be the judge:
“To all you impatient fucking whacked out CRUEheads….
“A few years ago, we all got together an agreed to take a break to recharge the band, and come back out swinging around summer of 2003. Things seem to be right on target. [MOTLEY CRUE frontman] Vince [Neil] is doing a summer tour this year with TESLA and some other bands…. Tommy [Lee]'s album comes out soon, so there will be another T Bone tour, [guitarist] Mick [Mars] is writing and expanding his creativity as well as I.
“To have this time to enjoy my family is a gift I really need to thank the band for. We could've just keep touring and touring with the CRUE, but in the end, [we were] in need of some serous time off. It's hard for a lot of people not to be greedy and run a band's name into the ground, but thank god, we all have the sense to see those pigs coming.
“Speaking of pigs… Sometimes she just c.ant u.nderstand n.ormal t.hinking f.cking whack job……she'll be a waitress in a 3rd rate strip bar in ten years…. trust me…
“Things that could make you cream your jeans this summer…
