Tommy Lee Sits Out Motley Crue Shows; Alice Cooper's Glen Sobel Sits In

Tommy Lee sat out Motley Crue's Wednesday night show in Buffalo, NY due to a case of tendinitis in his wrist and was replaced by Glen Sobel, drummer for opening act Alice Cooper.

Lee went on stage during the show to apologize to the audience, telling them "I'm so fucking sorry. I woke up at 3 AM with tendonitis. I got a shot and the doctor's like, 'You need to chill the fuck out for a minute.' So I just want to say I'm sorry, this shit just happens. Glen is back there, from Alice Cooper, fucking killing shit. So give it up for my man. I'll see you soon."

Sobel was only given a few hours notice and spent the afternoon learning the parts but he considered his sudden gig a real honor. Glen wrote on his Facebook page:
So today at 12:30pm I got a call from Motley Crüe management about me filling in for Tommy Lee who has a hurt wrist. After our Alice Cooper set, I rocked a set w/ Crue here in Buffalo, NY. It's been an insane day of prep & making cheat sheets. I can't describe what an honor its been to rock tonight with Vince, Mick, Nikki & Tommy, who was handling some of the electronics and cueing me through the in ear monitors from side stage. No- I did not do the Cruecify drum solo. But I played with the guys for the finale of Home Sweet Home on the hydraulic stage by front of house.

It's one of those things- had I known when I was a kid this would happen one day----you get the picture.

Here's to hoping Tommy Lee's wrist heals up quickly. I'm familiar with the experience of playing though pain while being on tour. It isn't fun.

Thx to all my Alice band mates & crew members (especially Michael Miller & Nick Engle) for making this day run smooth, and of course Alice for having me out on this amazing tour.

See you at the next show!

Lee also sat out the band's Friday night show in Bridgeport, CT. This time, he released his own statement on the situation:
As some of you may have heard, I sustained an injury of severe inflammation to my left wrist and was unable to play the show the other night in Buffalo. I'm so sorry to say that the injury has not improved and it is unlikely I will be able to perform again tonight in Bridgeport. Regardless, the show must go on and Alice Cooper's amazing drummer, Glen Sobel, will be filling in for me on drums. I will, however, come on stage to see everyone and also to play the piano with my good hand for the finale on 'Home Sweet Home'.

I am told this injury is temporary and that I will be back on stage very shortly. I'm doing everything in my power to speed up the healing process. I hate not being able to play for you guys!!

BAPTIZED, BECAUSE OF? BY STEVE FINNELL



Some who deny that immersion in water is essential to the forgiveness of sins claim that "for" in Acts 2:38 actually means "because of".

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

The baptism deniers say that Acts 2:38 actually means "Repent, and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ "because your sins have already been forgiven." That would mean repentance and water baptism follows forgiveness of sins.

If in fact your sins are forgiven the minute you believe, then why does Acts 2:38 say you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit after repentance and water baptism? Why the delay? Why would Christians have to wait until they repented and were baptized to receive the Holy Spirit if they were already saved from the penalty of sin?

Jesus shed His blood "for" the remission of sins. Jesus did not shed His blood "because sins were already forgiven".
Matthew 26:26-28 ....."For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.(NKJV)

For the remission of sins means "for", it does not mean "because of".

When Saul was told to arise and be baptized, and wash away his sins, calling on the name of the Lord; it was not because his sins had already been forgiven three days ago on the road to Damascus. Saul believed in the Lord three days prior to getting instructions from Ananias. (Acts 9:6-9)

Acts 22:12-16......16 'And now why are you waiting " Arise and be baptized, and wash your sins away, calling on the name of the Lord.'(NKJV)

In order to convince men that "for" of Acts 2:38 means "because of" you need a skilled professional and a willing student.

There are only two choices when it comes to salvation. 1. Believe the Bible. 2. Believe man's interpretation of the Bible.
