Motley Crue's Tommy Lee Returning To Farewell Tour

(hennemusic) Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee says he has fully recovered from a tendonitis injury that sidelined him for five shows on the band's farewell tour last month and that he will rejoin the group when they resume live shows in Helsinki, Finland on November 18.

"I'm back to 100 per cent," Lee tells The National. "I bruised a bone in my wrist, but after a serious double dose of cortisone that helped with the inflammation, and with the help of this little wrist machine to exercise it, I'm back to normal."

"I'm always getting injuries like bruised and bloody knuckles from catching a cymbal or the edge of a drum," he adds. "Drumming's pretty physical. We sit at the back of the stage getting beat up like a workhorse.

"Anytime you do something repetitive over a sustained period - and this tour's already been a year and a half - your body just says 'I'm hurt. I can't do this.' But I'm all good now. They got me back into shape."

Lee was first diagnosed with the injury to his left wrist in Buffalo, NY on October 14 and was pulled from the show on doctor's orders. Read more here.
