Prior to the band kicking off their current tour, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee broke four ribs. That said, the drummer says he is determined to play each show for as long as he can.

A statement regarding Lee’s condition and drive to play live was shared via the Mötley Crüe Instagram account. The following comes from Tommy Lee:

“Man ya’ll ain’t gonna believe this shit!….I broke 4 fucking ribs! But I’ve been resting and healing and even though the doctor tells me I shouldn’t play at all, you know I’m stubborn and I’ll beast through the pain every show for as as many songs as I can! And have no fear, my boy Tommy Clufetos is here to help me out until I’m back at 100%… we’ve all been waiting years for this moment and there’s no way I’m missing this! On with the show!”
