Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee was the recent guest of the latest episode of Why I Create by Ben Coleman.
Mötley Crüe icon revealed that he is enjoying his big, beautiful mansion he was never at and catching up with his kids nowadays.
Here is his statement (Transcribed by BlabberMouth):
“When you’re touring and working all around the world constantly, I missed so many of those, I’m sure, really special times and years that just blew by. I’d be on tour, and you’re out there for a year, and I’d maybe see my kids twice in a year.
They’d come out for a weekend and go home. So there’s times that I’ll never get back that I missed. I don’t know what I missed, but I know I missed something probably really beautiful. So I feel like I’m playing catch-up.
I don’t think people understand how that all works when you have kids and a touring career where you’re constantly gone — you’re always gone. And I often wonder: why do I have this big, beautiful fucking mansion that I’m never at. I ask myself ‘why’ a lot. But now I’m actually enjoying it. I can take a year off and float in the pool that I’ve never floated in [because] I’m never here.
I’m doing shit that I needed to do, like catch up with my kids, enjoy my home — do the things that I never get to do. And I really feel like these are the golden years, man — with my family and me personally. It’s been pretty fucking rad.”
