Looks like the drummer from Motley Crue Tom Lee is an unstoppable force! He was seen bathing by a swimming pool in Florida after breaking four ribs, which caused him to leave a show on his band’s tour early. However, the tattooed musician looked as tough as ever as he swam shirtless in the water in one photo and basked in the sun with very cool shades in another, for TMZ.

The percussionist broke his ribs for unknown reasons before playing in Atlanta on June 16. He broke the news on social media ahead of the start of Motley Crue’s highly anticipated Stadium Tour. “Dude, you ain’t gonna believe this shit [but] i broke [four] damn ribs!” he said on his Instagram.

Going against his doctor’s orders, the 59-year-old decided to perform the show anyway. “I rested and healed, and even though the doctor tells me I shouldn’t perform at all, you know I’m stubborn, and I’ll face the pain at every gig for as many songs as I can.” He ended up going through an impressive five songs in the set, before having to leave and hand his drumsticks over to his fellow drummer. Tommy Clufetoswho toured with bands such as Black Sabbath.

Before the set started, Tommy updated the crowd on his condition. “About 14 days ago I broke not one, not two, not three, but four fucking ribs here,” he said. “I wish I had a fucking badass story like me and Connor McGregor messing up a fucking bar or something, but I don’t,” he added, managing to find humor in the situation.

Before leaving the stage, Tommy once again addressed the audience. “The doctors told me, ‘Don’t play, bro. No game.’ And I was like, ‘Are you getting high, bro? We have a fucking tour to do! So anyway, I’m not sitting for shit,” he said. “My boy will help me here, and I’ll see you later.” Carry on with the fucking show.
