According to, MÖTLEY CRÜE's Tommy Lee has been threatened with legal action by an engineer who claims he stole his idea for the roller-coaster drum kit.

Los Angeles-based Scott King - who claims he pitched the idea for the concert stunt back in 1991- fired off a legal letter to Motley Crue's lawyers recently, claiming Lee turned down his pitch 20 years ago, then used the drum-coaster idea for Motley Crue's 2011 tour.

King claims he never got a cent from the band, but Lee's attorneys insist King never pitched anything to Lee.

No lawsuit has been filed as of yet.
