Graham Reid of the New Zealand Herald spoke with Tommy Lee about his decision to leave Motley Crue for a solo career, a decision he wishes would have had him leave Pamela Anderson as well. Tommy said, “At one point I wasn’t happy in Motley Crue, creatively. Music was changing and I was changing and wanted to do something different. I felt that in my relationship at that time, too. I wish I knew then … you know what I’m going to say. It’s been a crazy few years.” Nzherald.co.nz has since removed the article.
