Motley Crue's Tommy Lee posts Facebook rant about fans asking for photos
'I'm not here to take pictures with you, I'm here to entertain you!' he tells fans
In the post the drummer says people can’t even imagine "what kinda crazy has happened" when fans ask him to pose for photos when he is trying to have private time.
"I fucking LOVE my fans! And you know this!!!" he begins. "What I have a problem with is... Taking pictures! I hate it! Irritates the fuck out of me when people say...you owe it to your fans, they put you where you are, etc etc! I certainly dont owe anybody anything! When I bought all my Led Zeppelin records and concert tickets I didn't say 'one day these fuckers are gonna owe me a picture' It's the least they can do for me!...wtf people?" He added:
I'm not here to take pictures with you, I'm here to entertain you! Nobody put me where I am but ME! They may have helped inspire me with their love for what I do...but I put myself right here where I want to be with a lot of hard work, practice, talent, luck, etc.
He continued: "Ya wouldn't wanna handshake standing at the pisser in the mens bathroom next to me would ya?... And Yes thats happened to me too... Or when your eating a nice quite meal with your family some rude jackass comes up and asks for a picture! You cant even imagine what kinda crazy has happened to me."
Earlier this year, Lee’s bandmate Vince Neil announced that he would be setting up his own strip club named after the band’s hit single ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ in Las Vegas.
