Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee doesn't think they'll ever make another album.

The outspoken musician with the 'Shout at the Devil' group said he doesn't think there is any point in making another full length body of work, and records are a "waste of time" in the digital age.

He said: "No one buys albums anymore. I'll never make another full record, I think. It's a waste of time because people can only ingest a song at a time, so why not make bitching songs at a time and release them.

"I don't listen to anybody's full record anymore, and when I did, I don't think I listened to the whole record. Maybe it's my child-like short attention span, but I'm not a fan of that long, drawn-out fing album anymore."

Motley Crue played a homecoming show in Los Angeles on Tuesday (14.06.11) night, with every member of the band thanking fans from the stage for sticking by them over their career.

Frontman Vince Neil said: " It's good to be home, motherers. Thirty fing years, and we still haven't killed each other yet!"

While bassist Nikki Sixx told them: "I'd like to thank Los Angeles for inspiring every good and bad thing this band has ever fing done!"
