Tommy Lee Reminisces The Time He And Vince Neil Accepted An Award For Mötley Crüe’s ‘Dr. Feelgood’ Album
Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing the video of the time when the band received the Heavy Metal/Hard Rock album award for the American Music Awards thanks to their ‘Dr. Feelgood’ album back in 1991 and stressed the fact how the time and music has changed since then.
As many of you know, ‘Dr. Feelgood’ is the fifth studio album by Mötley Crüe which was released on September 1, 1989. In addition to being the band’s best-selling album, it is often regarded by critics and fans as the band’s best studio album, along with reaching the top at the Billboard 200 chart, making it the band’s only album to claim this position.
Despite losing to Living Colour both years, ‘Dr. Feelgood’ was nominated for Grammy awards in 1990 and 1991, yet Mötley Crüe won the Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album of the year at the American Music Awards in January 1991 for their album.
Recently, Tommy Lee shared a video on his official Instagram page revealing the moment when he and lead vocalist Vince Neil accepted the award for the Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album of the year and the two mostly thanked their fans during their acceptance speech as they looked incredibly happy and excited.
Since these days categories like this do not include many accurate representations and often criticized for their nominees that fall far from rock and roll, Tommy Lee also stated that times have drastically changed since then.
Here is what Lee said:
“here is Mötley Crüe who had won the Heavy Metal/Hard Rock album for the American Music Awards. Interesting how times have changed”
