Tommy Lee announces 2nd solo album

Fifteen years after Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee struck out on his own with a solo album, he’s put the wraps on a follow-up.

In a tweet posted Thursday, Lee wrote, “Hey kids! Finally, my new record is done and getting mastered now. Lookin’ like a March release! Y’all gonna LOVE this! Been working on this for two years! Making sure everything is amazing for you! This is gonna be a flip! Two sides, two genres. I’ll explain more later.”

Although the as-yet-untitled project will be Lee’s second official solo outing — following 2005’s “Tommyland: The Ride” — he’s also released two albums with his side band, Methods of Mayhem.

What did you think of Tommy Lee’s first solo album? Being that drummers aren’t usually cast into the spotlight, why is Tommy Lee so popular?
