Tommy Lee talks about meeting Prince

Has anyone heard this cover? I googled but couldn't find any audio. I'm just wondering how cringeworthy it is.

https://nypost.com/2020/1...van-halen/

You cover Prince’s “When You Were Mine.” Of all his great songs, what made you pick that one?

That song originally is really uptempo and super happy, but what he’s saying is f - - king dark, dude. Lukas [Rossi, who sings it] had the idea of slowing it down, and the song got really dark. I was like, “Oh my God, this is it!” If you’re gonna do a Prince cover, it better be f - - king great — and you better do it different.

What kind of relationship did you have with Prince?

I met him twice, which was f - - king amazing. It’s always cool to meet your heroes and then have them be what you imagined. And then I was engaged to his ex-wife, Mayte, which was f - - king bizarre. I felt like such a fanboy asking her questions about her ex-husband.

haha "What made you pick that one?".... Seriously? Jeez, do we need to make him say it. Tommy seems like a genuine guy. I'm surprised he's still a fan like that considering.

I think, in one of the episodes of "Hollywood Exes", M said that "Tommy is a big kid". I wonder what she means?

That he's got a big dick, but that's well known anyways.

I mean, the cover is much better than I figured it would be though some production choices made me cringe (the echo on "time after time" for ex). But it is a true testament to the sheer brilliance of the original composition that it can be refactored a hundred times by different artists and it still sounds catchy and charming. I pretty much never hate any version of if that I hear and I love Cyndi's almost as much as the original.

Anyway yes his cock is a serpent of biblical proportions and I'm curious what the psychologists would say about Mayte or anyone being romantically involved with such a smelly looking dude. Honestly he looks like he smells like sour, dirty old ham slices.

That's refreshing he had a good experience meeting Prince.

He treated Trent Reznor like s**t!

that is strange, and i recall an interviewer being suprised that prince had no awareness of motley crue's existence lol i remember being perplexed about Mayte's choice of Tommy Lee, though I knew nothing about him. When I read in her book that he's nice and a bigtime gardener, i did note to self to check out his music some day smile

On another episode of "Hollywood Exes", Andrea fell and got injured during dance rehersal. I hope that somebody did not do negative spiritual work on her.

yeah, but im sure P knew who Mötley Crüe was...them cats were kickin ass (musically) all over radio and stages everywhere...but most men with REAL pride refuse to ever publicly acknowledge any threat or intrusion to their present or past romantic endeavors...shit, P wasnt even too fond of publicly acknowledging some of his influences or competitors.

Oh I think that Prince had awareness of Motley Crue's existence, but knowing Prince, he pretended not to. lol
