\"Tommy Lee messed up his hand pretty bad, and yes, accidents do happen, and yes, frustration does happen to everybody, including Tommy, who would rather play drums (even with a damaged hand) than just about anything in the whole world. But following doctor\'s orders for a few shows is what we have to do right now (or cancel shows). We all wanna say we\'re sorry Tommy has to sit out a couple shows, But we hope to have him back up on the drums [as soon as possible]. Until then, he is at all the shows, jumping around, helping out with vocals and playing piano ever so lightly on Home Sweet Home.\"
Morgan Rose flew in right before the show and barely had time to learn anything let alone to rehearse. Continues the Mötley Crüe bassist:
\"Now to the hero of the day… Mr. Morgan Rose, the monstrous drummer from Sevendust. Morgan flew out with only minutes to go before there were no flights left from Atlanta. He came charging in like a knight in shining armor, drum pedals and sticks in hand, stepping onstage and pretty much nailing the show top to bottom first time out. I think Morgan needs a standing ovation for his dedication to kicking ass and helping not only Mötley Crüe out, but the road crew and everybody else out here whose lives would been affected. Thank you, bro.\"
The last time Lee was forced to sit out a Mötley Crüe gig was June 12, 2007 when he was also recovering from an arm ailment. Evanescence/Dark New Day drummer Will Hunt filled in for Lee at that show, although Tommy did manage to take to the kit for one number: Kickstart My Heart.
