If anyone has followed Tommy Lee’s journey outside all things Motley Crue, you’ll recognize his affinity for the contemporary, nay, the trendy. His lifeline sweeps the spectrum between rock-rap, hip-hop, EDM, trip-hop, and darkwave. Since day one, all Tommy has wanted was to have a good time while being responsible, and it’s this type of outlook we should all embrace. No pessimistic views; always-optimistic ballin’.

Years gone by, Crue proclaimed this was the end only to renege on their contract, but T Lee was already bumping elbows with the mix masters of mashups. Tommy states that his new offering, Andro, is artistic androgyny, with feelings and spiritual outbreaks half-male, half-female; both sexes mixed into one outpouring of venereal nuzzle. While Lee himself never makes a vocal appearance, there’s plenty of room for a whos-who of contemporary up-and-coming wannabes and gonnabes, and Andro has a creative focus that recognizes diamonds in the rough.

“Caviar on a Paper Plate” featuring Mickey Avalon is one of the standout tracks and the video’s quite entertaining lyrically and visually. “Demon Bitches” sounds like you’re inside an arcade machine at a 24/7 Bogota down on lower Crenshaw; The track is so loaded with street cred the big homies be bumpin’ til the break of dawn, while “P.R.E.T.T.Y.” is a love romance that trumps one of T Lee’s old love songs, “Home Sweet Home,” and the difference is night and day. This could almost be an Ariana Grande B-side. But, it’s the heart-dilapidating ending, “Make It Back,” that finds us in pure EDM heaven with a graceful goodnight kiss to end a perfect evening.

Andro is a fun trip that you never want to end, finding yourself asking the conductor if you can ride one more time, and Tommy Lee will surely oblige. If you’ve followed T until now, you might enjoy this, or, if you have no idea who T Lee is, you might have popped in at the perfect time to drop, roll, and dance.

I was born in the late 60's amongst hippies and bikers. Cut my teeth on 70's rock and roll surrounded by motorheads and potheads, and in the 80's spread my wings and flourished as a guitarist. In the 90's I became a semi-professional musician knocking on death metals door, as well as entering the world as a freelance writer. In the 2000's I moved to Hollywood and watched the music industry crumble in front of my dreams and then took a break. Now, in the early 2020s I'm ready to rock again… or swing, blues, bluegrass, country, jazz, classical, etc. Its not so much a job to me anymore, but a great way to express myself and have a good time, and, "I know, its only rock and roll but I like it".
