And someone tell him to start listening to The Cure again.

Pumpkins = Cheezy metal + The Cure + Shoegaze

And Oceania already kinda had a light shoegaze thing going

Atleast Tommy has his own thing going on

It's simple but it elevates and suits the music

I'm far from being a Mike apologist, but I don't understand how someone can complain about Mike's fills and flat sound but praise Tommy Lee. It doesn't make any fucking sense.

Corgan took the genre I hate more than anything and made it listenible.
That was more of the Black Sabbath, Dio, early Scorpions, and Judas Priest influence than cheese 80s glam metal.

How so? How does it specifically sound like it was directly influenced by 80s glam metal?

Yes, to me it does. As does "Soma". But again, Billy found a way to make the lamest shit badass.

That's like the story of his 90's existence. Taking everything that isn't cool and making it cool.

Tommy Lee Interview

Who were some of your contemporaries that you admired when you were with Motley Crue?

TL: Led Zeppelin, one of my all-time favorite bands. They're a band that like... the drummer John Bonham is still one of my all-time drumming mentors.

The word "contemporary," as used in the music and arts, has a very specific meaning. That's generally why movements/styles are grouped together and music is allotted into distinct decades.

By the way, your dictionary definitions really don't contradict what I'm saying here.

Here's some more for you, since you insist

con·tem·po·rar·y (kən-tĕm′pə-rĕr′ē)
adj.
1. Belonging to the same period of time: a fact documented by two contemporary sources.
2. Of about the same age.
3. Current; modern: contemporary trends in design.
1. One of the same time or age: Shelley and Keats were contemporaries.
2. A person of the present age.

the other thing is that i'm pretty sure tommy lee said "mentor" in regards to bonham, so i'm not sure why you're telling me about "contemporary" when it's what araneae re: the comment about bonham being one of his "all time drumming mentors" which doesn't make any sense

further, like araneae said. They are not "contemporaries" because they existed at the same time, in the world. No more than I am a contemporary of Motley Crue.

Motley Crue's contemporaries were Guns and Roses, Poison, shitty ass Areosmith and etc.

god damn it kreator

here let me explain something to you, since you're apparently not familiar with who john bonham is

pretty much every single drummer says that they were inspired, taught, or whatever by john fucking bonham, he is a god. he is the reason i say jim is the best drummer after punk rock.

Exactly. Much like how SP was a contemporary of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Hole, etc. They belonged to the same music generation. Motley Crue and Led Zeppelin do not.

I imagine Billy waiting by the phone, waiting for Tommy Lee's phone calls. When he speaks to him, Billy is blushing and twirling the phone cord, trying to not sound nervous.
