  TOMMY LEE WINS LEGAL BATTLE OVER ROLLERCOASTER DRUM KIT
6 January 2014




TMZ reports that Tommy Lee has won a lawsuit over the rights to play his Roller Coaster drums on stage.

The Mötley Crüe drummer was challenged over the ownership of the kit, which travels in a loop while being played, by engineer Howard Scott King who alleged that Lee had taken credit for his idea.

During the court hearing, no confidentiality agreement or other supporting evidence was produced by King's lawyers.

Lee's case was based on not being the same design as that discussed by the pair in 1991, and the idea of a roller-coaster was not owned by anyone.

The claim for $400,000 was thrown out by the judge as exclusivity was not proved and ruled that Lee's idea was original.
