Machine Gun Kelly has shared his experience on playing Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee in ‘The Dirt’. He said:
“My first emotion that I revert to isn’t happiness and I think his is, very much so,” he said. “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.”
Baker, who first read “The Dirt” when he was 13 (“It was my Bible,” he claimed), also got pretty good doing Lee‘s signature drumstick twirling.
“I had that damn drumstick in my hand for four months straight, dude,” he told USA Today. “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.”
