Tommy Lee Roller Coaster Solo

Since he takes a fan along for the ride, does this count as a credit?

Typical enthusiast complaining. ;)

I'm waiting for someone to point out that it's a powered ride, so they wouldn't count it.

Does anyone know what the electronic song that is played at the beginning of this marketing video (of the same Tommy Lee contraption) is? I need to know. Seriously. I need to know. I'm pretty sure that it was created with the Fruityloops Studio DAW software (only for Windows :( ), but is the song a release that I can purchase, or is it just something that Tommy Lee uses in his live, whatever-the-heck-he-is-doing-there, performances?

The Tommy-Lee-takes-a-fan-for-a-ride ride looks really boring to me. Not a fan of Tommy Lee, but if I were, it might be an awesome ride. My stance is, so what - Tommy Lee can play drums up-side-down.

I don't count is as a credit at all, because it's not really a coaster? ;)

I do like Tommy Lee's drum style in older Motley Crue, especially the Girls, Girls, Girls album. :)

This ain't the first time he's done the drumming upside down bit... he did it back in '87 for the Wild Side video..

I been watching Motley Crue video's past few days.. think I'm gonna let my hair grow long and pretend I'm 20 again.....

I'm pretty sure that's not it, Jason Hammond. Thanks anyways. lol

I found it though. Someone posted what the music was on YouTube.

I think it's badass! And I would LOVE to join Tommy on stage!

I am DYING to see the Motley Crue/Poison show before it ends. I am hoping for Columbus if a miracle happens. :)

Actually, not only would I go nuts sitting behind Tommy on his drum set, I would gladly pay $1000 for THIS if I had that kind of money sitting around. That would absolutely make my YEAR!

I am totally shameless when it comes to bands that I have loved since my early teens. :) And who knows when these two bands will ever tour together again with ALL the original members. :)

Getting back on topic, I wonder how many coaster geeks have already seen the show and argued whether it could be counted as a credit or not. ;)

Tommy Lee actually lifted the whole playing upside down bit from Mick Mars' obscure old band.

Buddy Rich did it first.

Yeah, but can he play as good as Tommy Lee?!? Bwaaaahahahaha

I tried to say that with straight face...

Hah. Hadn't heard that one before, even though I saw Leppard in 1981 (Geez, that's thirty years ago!) They were opening for Ozzy, who'd just gone solo. I walked out on Ozzy. I wasn't particularly impressed by Leppard. The only reason I bought tickets was that Motorhead was originally scheduled as the opener.

They had 10 arms back then. :)

I just had a discussion with my brother over the weekend who saw Journey and Def Leppard a year or two ago. Said Leppard's live show was lousy; totally devoid of energy and stage presence. They were definitely a stellar studio band, though.

But the genesis for Motley Crue doing it was most likely Mick Mars' old band.

Saw Def Leppard in 1988, 1992 and 1993. Great live band in those days. I think they're a paycheck band these days, like many others from the pre-grunge era.

I saw Def Leppard a bunch.. that tour where they played in the middle of the arena with a 4 sided stage, I remember being a good show.

Their sound after Pyromania got a little too processed IMO.

90's nostalgia is just around the corner. The grunge era bands' chance to cash in is coming.
