Tommy is thru with the Crue!

Following a scuffle with rap-rocker Kid Rock at the Mtv Video Music Awards recently, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee has now announced that he is quitting the band following a previously reported
run-in between the rest of the band and Lee's personal management, Carl Stubner.

A statement from Lee's people this week says that their client "recently informed [bandmates] Sixx and Mars, the shareholders of 'Motley Crue Inc', that he was resigning from the band and his resignation was accepted".

Let's hope he doesn't chose to go back into film-making...
