Tommy Lee tells how Motley Crue smuggled in drugs

How Motley Crue smuggled drugs across the boarder

Motley Crue are no strangers to drugs and partying, so when it came to touring with their favourite substances they came up with clever ways to hide them.

Tommy Lee has revealed how they did it on the tour bus and on their luxury private jet. On a newly recirculated video from Jackass star Steve-O's YouTube channel Steve-O's Wild Ride! - Clips.

Tommy firstly explains “I never put it in or on my body". He continues “On the ground, if you’re on your tour bus… in the back [there’s a vent] almost like an emergency exit. As soon as we’d stop and pull into immigration, we’d pop the top, nice and slow, take everything, put it up on the roof of the bus and close the ventilation. Dog, immigration dudes come through the bus, ‘Alright, all good. See you guys later.’ As soon as the fuckin’ bus door shut, pop that up and pull it in.”

Lee continues and explains how they pulled it off on their private jet “The airplane, same deal. “On an airplane you’ve got your headliner upholstery. We’d take fuckin’ cocaine, whatever it was, do as much as we could before we get there, whatever’s left we’d stick… above my seat, for some reason, there was a little fuckin’ rip in the headliner, so we’d fuckin’ get the fuckin’ bag of blow and just really crank it down as little as we could and fuckin’ just get it up inside the headliner with a little piece of double-sided tape. You couldn’t tell.”

Lee adds “I’m sitting there, dude… poo poo in my pants. Just like, ‘Oh my god, oh my god.’ Just freaked out that the [drug-sniffing] dog’s gonna fuckin’ come stop and then jump on my lap and then fuckin’ [find the drugs]. We pulled that off several times and never got busted.”

It could have been a different rock n roll world if they ever got busted in Singapore, they might have only just got released today if ever. He's probably given away the secrets to how every tour band has smuggled drugs across the border. Now the authorities know where to find them! Thanks a lot, Tommy Lee!
