LOS ANGELES – It was a dream come true for a fan of Motley Crue. For one night, he filled in for injured drummer Tommy Lee.
The lucky guy, Harvey Warren, performed with the rock band Wednesday at the Enmax Center in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, Motley Crue's publicist, Dvora Vener Englefield, said in a statement.
"After playing multiple shows wearing a brace and taking anti-inflammatory injections, Tommy Lee's doctor instructed him to give his injured right-hand wrist a break after his tendinitis made it difficult for him to perform," Englefield said.
Warren, a Calgary resident who manages a Starbucks by day, moonlights as a drummer in the Canadian Motley Crue tribute band Broken Toyz.
Lee, 43, hopes to return for a concert Friday in Prince George, Englefield said. There are six dates left on the tour.
