Tommy Lee Refuses To Dance With The Stars
Sadly, we won't be seeing Tommy Lee on ABC's Dancing With The Stars this upcoming season. For some reason, it just isn't his style...
“Ok! Ready for the funniest sh*t ever!!!,” tweeted Lee. “Dancing With The Stars just offered me a spot on the show!! I’ve never hit the PASS button so quick.”
But, the Motley Crue drummer will be back on TV soon enough. Enter “Culture Shock with Tommy Lee,” an investigative travel show for the SyFy network. The unscripted series stars Lee as he attempts to uncover various rituals, symbols, and other mysteries of secret societies. Tommy will immerse himself in the history of each society, meet with former members and participate in their ceremonies.
The Cribs Drummer Ross Jarman Recovers
The Cribs drummer Ross Jarman is now recovering after undergoing a “gnarly” spinal surgery. The much-needed procedure was to correct a herniated disc, which was pushing on a nerve and causing him severe pain. The injury was sustained a few years ago but touring with the Cribs had made it difficult to schedule the surgery.
“There never seemed to be a good time to do it, so it kept getting put off and put off again,” Jarman said. “Things kept getting worse however to the point where even just sitting on a plane became a grueling ordeal, so the decision was made to have the operation after festival season finished this year.”
The 26 year old is expected to make a full recovery in time to begin working on the band's next album.
