Bassist Nikki Sixx did a Q&A with fans on Twitter this week and that was one of the revelations he made. He says the song is coming soon.

Machine Gun Kelly talked about what it was like to play Lee in a recent interview with Billboard.

“Tommy is like the puppy dog of the group,” MGK said. “He makes mistakes, but you kind of love him more when he’s making mistakes.”

The Dirt will premiere on Netflix on March 22nd. The rest of the cast includes Douglas Booth as Sixx, Daniel Webber as singer Vince Neil and Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars.
