Mötley Crüe drummer and founding member Tommy Lee revealed his opinions about Post Malone’s song titled ‘Tommy Lee’ and stated he is honored to be the main subject of a song, especially since Post Malone is one of the biggest artists in the music industry at the moment after Billie Eilish.
‘Tommy Lee’ is a song released on June 12, 2020, by Tyla Yaweh, featuring vocals from Post Malone and serves as the lead single from Yaweh’s upcoming second studio album, ‘Rager Boy.’ The song can be considered as Yaweh’s most successful song since it earned itself a place in the Billboard Hot 100.
The song is basically an homage to Mötley Crüe icon Tommy Lee and his ‘lavish lifestyle’ who also plays the drums in the song’s instrumental. The duo sings about living like rockstars without worrying about anything, but also ‘touch on the tribulations of their position.’
During a recent interview with Kyle Meredith, Tommy Lee opened up about being the muse of a song, especially a song by Post Malone, and stated that he’s extremely honored to be an inspiration for a talented and successful artist like Post Malone. Lee also praised Billie Eilish stating that she is also one of the biggest artists in the current music industry.
Here is what Lee said:
“It’s even hard to explain. I’m honored to death that someone would even call a song ‘Tommy Lee,’ and then to have a song be about you… And coming from guys that, like fucking Post Malone is probably one of the biggest artists, other than Billie Eilish. These are extremely talented and successful artists, and to get that back, it’s hard to even explain. It feels so cool. It’s like you’re in a club. They’ve not only accepted you, they’re fucking honoring you.“
Additionally, Lee stated that the song demonstrated that he’s doing the right thing and on the right path when it comes to her music and inspiring other musicians and continued:
“It’s hard to talk about myself like that, so it’s difficult; I’m sorry. But it’s cool because it just acknowledges that what I’m doing, I’m on the right path.
Getting shoutouts from a bunch of other hip-hop artists, and my name pops up in a bunch of songs. I get a kick out of that. I’m, like, ‘That’s fucking rad, man.’ It’s weird even talking about it. I don’t know.”
