Motley Crue's Tommy Lee loved to f**k girls in the limo, and the band loved virgins, claims former driver
60-year-old Al Bowman revealed that he would be assigned to look for 'virgin groupies' for the 80s rockstars, drive them to drug deals, and drop them off at Satanic ceremonies
The latest Netflix biopic, 'The Dirt', an autobiographical film based on the best selling book about the band Motley Crue, has scenes that feature Ozzy Osbourne snorting ants from the ground to the extremely graphic sex scene that begins the epic film. The real-life band, however, was reported to be "even more debauched" than what the film portrayed them as.
The claims came from former Crue limo driver, Al Bowman. In an exclusive interview he had with The Sun, the now 60-year-old Bowman revealed that he would be assigned to look for "virgin groupies" for the 80s rockstars, drive them to and from drug deals, and even drop them off at Satanic ceremonies.
The driver also recalls doing an incredible amount of "condom clean-ups" in the back of the limo — and how band drummer Tommy Lee would almost tip the limo over with the raucous sex sessions.
Bowman, who lives in Henderson, Nevada, said: "I enjoyed the movie but there was much more debauchery in real life. Some of the sexual stuff they used to get up to was kind of disgusting but I guess there's only so much you can fit into 90 minutes."
"I drove them for about five years, I became like a fifth member of the band," he said.
Bowman added, "I would take them to buy drugs, to pick up girls, to rescue them when they had partied too hard - they'd call me at all hours. They called me 'Al the rock-n-roll limo man'."
Recalling an incident when he saved a well-endowed Tommy Lee's life, Bowman said: "They'd all get high on coke and booze and screw — Tommy loved to f**k girls in the limo. Sometimes he'd get himself into trouble — I remember one time when he was in a relationship with a girl called Candace but he'd been with this other girl who had a boyfriend — and all of a sudden the boyfriend came back and started chasing him with a knife. He had to jump in the limo to escape."
"Another time he called me from a phone booth in North Hollywood and asked me for some cocaine to perk him up — then the line went dead — so I rushed to where he said he was and found him blacked out in the phone booth with his sports car still running. I had to drag him into the limo and take him home — I saved his a** a couple of times."
He also claimed that the band members did not have a lack of groupies — they particularly loved virgins — and would ask him to go and find some just so they could "pop their cherries".
He said: "They were always on the hunt for virgins. That was my job when I drove on the 'Shout at the Devil' tour when they were playing with Black Sabbath — they would always say, 'Al go see if there are any groupies out there who are virgins and bring them to us. We want them'. They just wanted to pop their cherries."
Bowman continued: "I remember one night in Bakersfield during that tour I got two virgins for Nikki and Vince and then they got me my own hotel room as a thank you. That was a fun night."
Even though the former limo driver remembers having tons of fun with the band, he also remembers that there was a dark side.
He recalled taking various members of the band to eerie ceremonies and rituals across Los Angeles. According to Bowman, bassist Nikki Sixx was particularly interested in the "dark arts". He recalled that he once gave Sixx and renowned occultist Anton LaVey, the man who founded the Church of Satan, a ride to a weird ceremony at a residence behind the Whisky A Go Go nightclub in Hollywood.
Bowman said: "I remember them having an interest in Satanic rituals and I used to take them to these weird parties at an old mansion in Hollywood where there'd be people doing all kinds of creepy stuff."
He added, "Nikki was very much into the black arts, Alistair Crowley, incantations, witchcraft, all of that stuff. I drove him once with Anton LaVey and they were doing these weird chants."
"I had an intercom system so if they put up the divider in the limo I would just turn on the intercom and listen to everything that was going on. So I heard everything they were talking about. Then I dropped them at this strange house covered in ivy behind the Whisky A Go Go."
A representative for the band declined to comment on the former limo driver's claims but did say: "All I can say is that it seems rather remarkable that four band members had one limo driver who was at all those places, when the band had multiple limos and drivers in that era." Bowman has since hit back at the statement saying it was "well known" that he was a regular driver for the band.
