MÖTLEY CRÜE Drummer Featured In 'Show Your Soft Side' Campaign

MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee is featured in "Show Your Soft Side", a campaign developed to combat the alarming incidence of animal abuse in Baltimore, Maryland. Many of the more horrific cases have been perpetrated by teens, thus leading the Mayor’s Anti-Animal Abuse Advisory Commission to look for ways to change the mindset of young people who often view the maiming and torturing of defenseless dogs and cats as a sign of "toughness" or "manhood." The campaign puts forth a very different…

Great Memories and Other Stuff.....

Hi everyone, this is my first post. I signed up then vanished! However, I will try to visit more often. The music I was listening to just now, brings back some memories.
