When Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee injured his right wrist and was told by doctors to rest it, it was a dream come true for a Calgary Starbucks manager. Harvey Warren was asked to fill in at the last minute and sit behind the kit for the band's gig at the Enmax Center in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, during their Carnival of Sins Tour.
The band issued a statement on the rocker's condition: “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.”
A spokesperson for Crue said that when Warren was called by the concert promoter while working at Starbucks, "Harvey thought it was a joke. After some convincing, he realised it was true and accepted."
Warren is not only a fan, he is the drummer for Broken Toyz, a Motley Crue tribute band. With his dream about to come true, the coffee shop guy was sworn to secrecy and told his co-workers: "Something happened that will change my life but I can't tell you until tomorrow."
