Tommy Lee reveals love connection to Prince, drunken antics with Eddie Van Halen - NY Post
You cover Prince’s “When You Were Mine.” Of all his great songs, what made you pick that one?
That song originally is really uptempo and super happy, but what he’s saying is f - - king dark, dude. Lukas [Rossi, who sings it] had the idea of slowing it down, and the song got really dark. I was like, “Oh my God, this is it!” If you’re gonna do a Prince cover, it better be f - - king great — and you better do it different.
