Tommy Lee Sued Over Drum Set

Well not so much the drum set, but the roller coaster mechanism he’s been using on tour (see below). Apparently back in 1991 the engineer Scott King showed Tommy Lee his roller coaster drum apparatus but Lee didn’t take to it. Now all these years later, Lee has been using the design on his tour with Motley Crue. Scott King is suing Lee for at least $400,000 in damages. Lee of course said Scott King never approached him about his design.
