Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee joins Guns N’ Roses Gilby Clarke, and lead singer Lukas Rossi, winner of the CBS reality show. The band’s current bassist Johnny Thunders, formerly of Black Crowes and Goo Goo Dolls, replaced the injured Jason Newsted following his major shoulder injury in October.

Because Thunders died in 1991, his newly risen-from-the-grave corpse has spent the last few days on the road asking catch-up questions like, “Where did CBGB’s go?,” “What the hell’s an iPod?,” and “Why is the drummer driving the tour bus with his dong?”

  1. The Notorious T

    I had no idea Johnny Thunders played in the Goo Goo Dolls. Do you think he co-wrote “Name”?

  2. CaptainPeacockSuit

    You can’t put your arms around a memory and evidently there are morons in the music industry.

  3. Deadly Tango

    Reminds me of the station ID we had at my college station, starting around 1986 — “I’m Sid Vicious, and when I’m not dead, I listen to WPRB.”

    On a more positive note, does this mean they’ll be using “Chinese Rocks” in the tryouts?

    Instead of Tommy Lee, why don’t they go back to the afterlife and get Jerry Nolan, too?
