Rockers Motley Crue have denied their fill-in drummer WILL HUNT has been offered a permanent role in the band. DARK NEW DAY drummer Hunt has been filling in for the group's injured Tommy Lee on their North American tour. Lee was forced to pull out of gigs after developing tendonitis in his right wrist. He has since been sporting an arm brace and taking anti-inflammatory injections while giving drumming a rest. Hunt has previously backed Pamela Anderson's charismatic ex in his solo band, but has no plans to quit his own group. Dark New Day's guitarist CLINT LOWERY tells MTV his bandmate was just doing the rockers a favour, and has returned now the Motley Crue tour has ended (13APR06).
