In January of 2013, Fall Out Boy came back. Their hiatus was over, and they were ready to release new music, including a single from their upcoming album. The single came with a new music video and an upcoming tour, and then the album (“Save Rock and Roll”) dropped.
When he isn’t working on his music, Pete is also an active philanthropist. His biggest partnership is with The Jed Foundation’s Half of Us campaign, for which he is a spokesperson. The program is aimed at helping teens at risk.
Ted Nugent Today
Nugent still performs and releases music, but nowadays, he's probably more well known for his outspoken beliefs that go against the standard rock line. He's a strong advocate of hunting and is a major supporter of certain political beliefs that often lands him in public feuds, especially with his fellow musicians.
Even Paul McCartney has been known to clash with rocker, though we doubt that old Nugent feels troubled by any of it. He has his fanbase. In 2011 he released the song “I Still Believe” for free.
Pete Wentz of Fallout Boy
Pete Wentz is the most famous member of the punk rock band Fall Out Boy, but he wasn’t always. He was always a singer, but it’s not often the bassist of the group garners so much acclaim. Still, he’s the one associated the most with the band. Fall Out Boy was the biggest part of the emo rock scene in the new millennium but decided to take a hiatus in 2009.
Wentz created the dub-step group Black Cards, as well as focused on settling into family life with his now ex-wife Ashlee Simpson. Things are a bit of trouble for the Black Cards, with two band members leaving and lots of release delays.
Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe
When you think about crazy rock musicians, you’re thinking about Motley Crue – whether you know it or not. The band’s drummer, Tommy Lee, made a name for himself both as a member as well as for his outrageous lifestyle off the stage. Motley Crue has sold more than a million records worldwide, thanks in part to their hit singles “Dr. Feelgood” and “Girls, Girls, Girls.”
Success is attractive, which may be the most likely explanation for how Tommy Lee married world-famous model and actress Pamela Anderson after an on-and-off relationship. They had a pair of children before later divorcing.
Tommy Lee Today
Tommy Lee was ready to try other things. He starred in a reality TV series called “Tommy Lee Goes to College” in 2005 that revealed his wild and “unscripted” behavior to the world, but this time it was in a university instead of on stage. He published a memoir, “Tommyland,” in 2004 that detailed his life up to that point.
In 2014 Motley Crue decided to make their last big push, reuniting for a final tour with all four members. The members all had to sign a contract agreeing they wouldn’t appear for any future performances under the name, and the tour ran until the end of 2015.
