TOMMY LEE On Upcoming Solo Album: 'This Is The Best Thing I've Ever Done!'

MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee has spoken to about his upcoming solo album, "Tommyland: The Ride", tentatively due in August.

"It's true, this is the best thing I've ever done!" Tommy said. "I mean, people will be like, 'Is that fucking Tommy?' It's like an event record.

"This is more like my last record [2002's 'Never a Dull Moment'] than the METHODS OF MAYHEM record, which was all over the place," said Lee. "This one is right down the middle, it's not so hybrid. It has rock, pop, everything."

Lee's third solo album will be released to coincide with his NBC reality show, "Tommy Lee Goes to College", which got bumped up from a summer replacement to a fall show, due to the positive feedback. The show's theme song will be "Good Times", which features Dave Navarro (ex-JANE'S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) on acoustic guitar and producer/singer Butch Walker on the choruses, singing, "Take me away to a place where the good times, good times roll/ Don't let me stay in a place where the hate can't steal my soul."

The album's likely first single — and the song guaranteed to turn heads — is "Tired", which paints a scenario that could only exist in Tommyland. With help from GOOD CHARLOTTE's Joel Madden on the chorus and SUM 41's Deryck Whibley and Navarro on guitar, Tommy pays tribute his famous ex, Pamela Anderson, among other beauties.

"You know when you're sitting there with one of your buddies and you say, 'I can't believe so and so is fucking her!' And it's some supermodel or something and your buddy says, 'Yeah, but I bet he's tired of fucking her.' "
