Methods Of Mayhem
Methods Of Mayhem (1999-2000, 2009-2011, 2019-present): a Nu-Metal band from Los Angeles, California, USA.
ormed by Tommy Lee (lead vocals/rhythm guitar/drums) of Motley Crue fame in 1999 on the eve of his divorce from Pamela Anderson, Methods of Mayhem would see their self-titled album debut soon after to go on to become certified gold. The album featured appearances by Fred Durst, Crystal Method, U-God, Kid Rock, Snoop Dogg, Lil' Kim and George Clinton to form a sort of rap-rock hybrid. The "official" membership of the band, however, would consist of TiLo (vocals), Chris Chaney (bass), Mix Master Mike (turntables) and Kai Marcus (lead guitar/backing vocals) all of whom would be featured only for the debut album. The act split soon after.
In March 2009, Lee announced that he was reforming Methods of Mayhem and would start recording new music. Will Hunt (drums), J3 (guitar), Phil X (guitar; who contributed also on the first album) and touring bassist Marty O'Brien were the new partners for the sophomore album, A Public Disservice Announcement (2010).
A live performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno saw Morgan Rose (of Sevendust) playing drums, DJ Aero on turntables, J3 on guitar and vocals, and Lee on vocals and guitar; no bass player was on stage during the performance. Methods of Mayhem later signed to 'Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records' but split in 2011.
