Ok, we all know how MOTLEY CRUE are pretty well established as the forerunners of drugs and debauchery, however you may have always wondered just how the infamous band was able to move their drugs across international borders. Well fear not as Tommy Lee has revealed exactly how they did it on the tour bus and on MOTLEY CRUE’s private jet.
Tommy was on an episode of Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast last year, however a new clip from that appearance has surfaced online where the drummer gets into detail of how the notorious band was able to travel internationally with illegal narcotics.
“I never put it in or on my body,” Lee says. “On the ground, if you’re on your tour bus… in the back [there’s a vent] almost like an emergency exit. As soon as we’d stop and pull into immigration, we’d pop the top, nice and slow, take everything, put it up on the roof of the bus and close the ventilation. Dog, immigration dudes come through the bus, ‘Alright, all good. See you guys later.’ As soon as the fuckin’ bus door shut, pop that up and pull it in.”
Lee continues, “The airplane, same deal. “On an airplane you’ve got your headliner upholstery. We’d take fuckin’ cocaine, whatever it was, do as much as we could before we get there, whatever’s left we’d stick… above my seat, for some reason, there was a little fuckin’ rip in the headliner, so we’d fuckin’ get the fuckin’ bag of blow and just really crank it down as little as we could and fuckin’ just get it up inside the headliner with a little piece of double-sided tape. You couldn’t tell.”
“I’m sitting there, dude… poo poo in my pants. Just like, ‘Oh my god, oh my god.’ Just freaked out that the [drug-sniffing] dog’s gonna fuckin’ come stop and then jump on my lap and then fuckin’ [find the drugs]. We pulled that off several times and never got busted.”
