It was late on Monday night when I got the message. ‘Dude call me asap!’ Thinking something was wrong I was straight on the phone, Tommy Lee dude said an excited voice, get the questions ready now, he just messaged, lets make this interview fucken great! 10 minutes later I found myself back at work, Redbull in hand, wondering where on earth to start when it came to interviewing a giant in the music scene like Tommy Lee.
Instead of pointing out Tommy’s long list of achievements, we decided to find out a few things about the man that we didn’t already know and haven’t read in previous interviews. He is currently touring with DJ Aero and will be hitting Australia in April at the Climate Music festival. Despite his wild lifestyle and huge celebrity status he still remains incredibly down to earth and kindly put his time aside for a quick chat with the Crooked Crew in Aus.
