Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee To Guest Star On “The Goldbergs”

Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee will be guest starring on the February 12 episode of ABC’s “The Goldbergs.” The episode is called “Preventa Mode” and it will find the drummer playing a character named “Professor Lee.”

Here’s a description of the episode:

“In the episode titled ‘Preventa Mode’, Barry Goldberg (Troy Gentile) takes his attractive college professor on a date for Valentine’s Day. After losing her affection after the first date, he pays a visit to the head of her department, Professor Lee, played by Lee, to make sure dating a teacher is okay.”

Lee commented:

“I love doing this type of thing. I got to work with an amazing cast and crew, play dress up for a day and have a blast. And I gotta say, damn… those professor shoes were so comfortable!”

The show’s executive producer Adam F. Goldberg added:

“Growing up in the ’80s, I spent a lot of time watching MTV. I loved Mötley Crüe’s ‘Home Sweet Home’ video about missing your girlfriend while being out on the road. It was one of the first rock ballads that starts off with a soft piano and kicks in with the full band. I’m so grateful Tommy agreed to have some fun with us in this episode. He was terrific.”

It’s worth noting that “Home Sweet Home” will also serve as the musical tribute for this episode.

Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe) Says His Upcoming Solo Album Will Feature “Literally Every Single Different Genre That You Could Imagine”

During a recent interview with Billboard, Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe) talked a bit about his upcoming solo album. The effort is expected to be released in March and Lee says it will feature “literally every single different genre that you could imagine.”

The effort is tentatively titled “Trans Genres” because as Lee says “one side is all female energy and the other side of the record is all male.” He continued:

“It’s very eclectic, and I think everyone’s gonna really enjoy it. That’s what I’ve been excited about lately. What a labor of love.”

Lee also added:

“[The album has] literally every single different genre that you could imagine. That’s why I want to call it ‘Trans Genres’ because it’s literally all over the place, which I love. It’s my favorite thing. I love swishing it up from track to track. But this is literally a whole side of one kind of eclectic thing and one side of the other kind of eclectic thing. I like records like that. I don’t like records that sound like it’s pretty much the same thing.”

He went on to reveal that the record will include a “slowed-down” and “insane” cover of Prince’s “When You Were Mine” and a number of guests including: Push Push, Julia (Plya), Ellie, Shotty Horroh, Lukas Rossi (ex-Rock Star Supernova), and Foreign Beggars.
