TOMMY LEE Confirms Recording Session With NIKKI SIXX

Former MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee has spoken to MTV.com about the reports that a CRÜE reunion tour is currently being planned and is scheduled to kick off in early 2005. "I did get together with Nikki [Sixx, CRÜE bassist] and record a couple of tracks," Lee said. "But as far as all four of us being in a room together and deciding to go on a tour, that's just a rumor. We haven't decided that yet. Mick [Mars] just got hip-replacement surgery; he's been really ill for a while. So no, we haven't been able to do that."

Lee also confirmed that two songs — one heavy, one mellow — that he originally wrote for BACKSTREET BOYS singer Nick Carter's now-aborted solo album will end up on his own solo CD. Lee has also just laid down tracks with Butch Walker and SOMETHING CORPORATE's Andrew McMahon for the album, due out early next year, on which he's also hoping to work with Dave Grohl, Lenny Kravitz and Nikka Costa. "I just love to collaborate," Lee said. "It's going to be fun."
