Tommy Lee has sworn that if Donald Trump wins the US election he’ll return to Greece.

The Mötley Crüe drummer told The Big Issue that if Trump is re-elected in November he is “out of here”.

Lee said: “Dude, I swear to God if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the UK – I’m out of here”. 

The musician said that he will “go back to my motherland, go back to Greece and get a house on one of the islands”.

The rockstar – real name Thomas Lee Bass – was born in Greece in 1962, before moving to the US when he was a one-year-old.

Lee continued: “The thing that stings the most is that I feel like we’re embarrassing.”

“I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What the f*** are you guys doing over there? Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country,” he said.

The 58-year-old was set to reunite with Mötley Crüe for a stadium tour alongside Def Leppard this year, however the dates have been pushed to 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.
