    I think it would totally rock. Come on.....You have to admit a camera tailing Dave for 24hrs a day would be more interesting than Tommy Lee.....

    TOMMY LEE To Launch "The Osbournes"-Style Reality TV Show - June 11, 2002

    Tommy Lee has reportedly begun filming a reality TV show based on his daily/family life for VH1. The project sees the former MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer following in the footsteps of OZZY OSBOURNE, whose show The Osbournes is the highest-rated show in MTV history.

    I guess this is because the media sees Dave as a has-been. If they had done this with Dave back in the eighties, it would have killed.

    I am not a all interested in this. It's so typical that when one thing is successfull that everyone jumps on the bandwagon. It worked with Ozzy not only because he's an icon but his wife was the brains behind it. Tommy Lee doesn't seem that bright to me.

    I swear the amount of creativity being displayed by those involved in the entertainment industry is at an all time low. Tommy Lee is one of the most obvious examples of an easily manipulated "himbo" musician wannabe rockstar I have ever read about. Talk about vapid.

    I'm pretty sure Dave said something early on in the tour (maybe the phone call after the KC show was postponed) about having MTV follow along on the tour trail and do something, but he was probably talking shit.

    IMHO the fact that there is no Dave reality show has nothing to do with "has-been". What the hell is Tommy Lee? The dude is just barely hanging on to exposure at all, what he has is due mostly to the fact that he couldn't even get with the old lady without showing it off.

    And Ozzy? Well hell he's singing songs about the environment, peace, love, and good happiness stuff now. That is has-been status personified for the man who wrote N.I.B.

    IMHO:
    I think the meaning of the term 'has-been' differs from person to person. The media uses its standard, we, music fans use ours.

    Tommy is still somewhat cool in the media because he made that porn with Pam. Ozzy is still perceived cool by the media because he has his Ozzfest festival which is popular among the young people. DLR still tours with his band but it is not deemed popular enough by the media. I think the last time DLR was perceived cool by them was in the mid eighties. After he went to Vegas in the nineties, sadly the media dismissed him. This is how the business work I guess.

    At any rate I would agree with the industry assumption that there is very little market for a reality show about Dave, has-been or otherwise.

    Besides, I doubt Dave could pull a reality show off. He's so over the top with an audience that anything shown would come across as scripted. He's a showman that really doesn't have the ability to "turn off the act" when someone is watching.
