Tommy Lee Says That He Drunk Two Gallons Of Vodka On Every Day Last Year

During a video call with Yahoo Entertainment on Friday, the legendary Motley Crue drummer shared this information.

Crüe drummer Tommy Lee says he drank two gallons of vodka a day at one stage last year, and after ending his band's last show, 'did nothing, totally zero.'

So, two gallons is a terrible batch of vodka. To be able to consume that amount, you'd have to do very little else.

That is precisely what Lee claims he's been doing, though. Apparently, a full glass of vodka will wake up and skull, making its way into two gigantic gallon bottles — do you remember the ones they have behind a bar? -every single day.

Speaking in an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, he explained: "It was crazy, I mean, I've been sober for four years, and I've been sort of on and off for a long time.

"I go through these phases where I just want to live a different life and f*** all the dumb s***. And then I decide, 'You know what? I don't want to live like that anymore. I want to have a lot of play and be f***ed up and stupid and all that s***."

"So, in this particular instance, I had been home... I had all this time at home, not touring, just being at home... I literally did nothing. I would just float around, drink, and just f***ing drink."

He added: "I didn't notice it until towards the end of it, when I was like, 'Oh dude, I've got to stop. This is f***ing insane.'

"Like, I was drinking just out of boredom. I would just wake up and be just building [a glass with] just all vodka and just a little eyedropper of cranberry or lemonade. I was drinking two gallons - not pints, not quarts, but gallons, the big-handles - a day.

"That's f***ing crazy. I just realised, 'Whoa dude, you're drinking enough to like, you could probably die.' And it wasn't even fazing me. I just became sort of immune to it."

Since then, at the behest of his wife, Brittany Furlan, he has found therapeutic support. Now, he's going to celebrate a full year of sobriety after recovering from rehab.

He continued: "She was like, 'Baby, I don't think I've ever even seen anybody drink that much. Like, you're kind of scaring me. Like, are you going to wake up? Am I going to wake up to, like, you not breathing?'"

Although he can't be sure how long his sobriety can last, because he doesn't know if it's a "everlasting thing" or not, he said, "But I'm not drinking vodka today right now,"
Looks like a good idea that's interesting. Over the course of this wretched pandemic, Lee has been reasonably busy, and has finished work on a solo album called ANDRO, which is out on October 16.
