Glen Fills in for Tommy Lee
Glen fills in for Tommy Lee in Mötley Crüe due to a case of inflamed tendinitis in Tommy's wrist. Yesterday in Buffalo, NY Glen got the call to fill in that night and pull double duty. After spending the afternoon making notes on Crue's set...
he rocked with Alice and then immediately after with Vince, Mick and Nikki while Tommy was on the sidelines talking to Glen through his in ear monitors and giving cues on parts of the show. We wish Tommy a speedy recovery! Glen is no stranger to playing in pain while on tour and was happy to step up and help save the show.
