Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee has been threatened with legal action, reports The Edmonton Sun, by Los Angeles based engineer Scott King, who claims that Lee stole the idea of a drum kit roller coaster from him.

Lee is notorious for his creative stunt drumming, even turning upside down while playing during shows on the band's 2011 tour.

Now King is claiming that he approached Lee over ten years ago in 1991 to pitch him the idea for the gravity defying roller coaster machine that Lee has been using during shows.

King states that back in 1991, Lee dismissed the idea and has sent a letter to the band's attorney. Reportedly, Mötley Crüe's lawyers have responded in kind to King, insisting that the Lee never received a pitch and that the two ideas in question were completely different.

Lee and the Crüe are currently out on tour with KISS.
