Tommy Lee Never ‘Tainted by Ugliness’ Says Machine Gun Kelly
“My first emotion that I revert to isn’t happiness and I think his is, very much so,” Kelly said of Lee in a new interview with USA Today. “He’s excitable. Everything to him is cool and there’s something really beautiful about that. It never seemed like he was tainted by the ugliness around him.”
He added that it had been useful to have Lee nearby as they worked. “I definitely would ask him, ‘Was it like this?’ or ‘Did you really say this?’ And he’d always be like, ‘Yep,’" MGK recalled. "It was kind of wild seeing him be tripped out by the movie magic because he was like, ‘Dude, that is our house, man. That was the original Motley house. How’d you guys do that?’”
Kelly – whose real name is Colson Baker – also revealed the extent of his attempts to imitate Lee’s drumstick-spinning antics. “I had that damn drumstick in my hand for four months straight, dude,” he said. “I have giant calluses in between my middle finger and my index finger just spinning that damn stick. So I hope you enjoy the stick twirls in that movie.”
