We want to show why the legendary Mötley Crüe drummer is EDM's next hero.
Tommy Lee is electronic dance music's best kept secret, straight up. In addition to being one of rock's most powerful and influential drummers, the Mötley Crüe basher knows how to turn up a dance floor like no other. His newest banger and collaboration with Australian DJ Nick Thayer and spiiter Mikill Pane, "Fly Sh*t" proves that tenfold. It's got a bouncing bravado that can't be matched by anything in electronic music, and Lee infuses his own attitude and energy, instantly separating it. Given the prowess of this anthem, we wanted to share 3 Reasons Tommy Lee is The Next EDM Superstar.
3 Reasons Tommy Lee Is The Next EDM Superstar
3. Tommy knows how to put on a show. Live shows don't get any bigger, ballsier, or more bombastic than Crüe gigs. That's just a fact. He transfers that energy to the club or the festival grounds any time he's behind the decks. He knows how to plot the peaks and valleys of a set and he gives each performance the same care and attention he does to pounding the skins. Don't miss him when he's in your town.
2. The genre pillars have welcomed him. Like the Crüe had Ozzy Osbourne's endorsement back in the day, his friendship with deadmau5 extends to everything from the Canadian mastermind riding the drum coaster to charitable events such as The Gumball 3000. You've also most likely seen him at multiple festivals too.
