Motley Crue rocker Tommy Lee frequently livens up boring parties by setting bandmate Nikki Sixx on fire - and the bassist actively encourages people to set him ablaze.

The hellraising drummer can't take the heat himself, but is constantly compelled to whip out the matches whenever the obliging Sixx is nearby.

He enthuses, "It's great fun. It was mostly Nikki we set on fire for the simple reason that he liked it.

"I tried it and decided I didn't like being on fire. It started one day when we were bored. Nikki poured this rubbing alcohol on his boots and we put a match to them.

"Nikki enjoyed it. I like setting things on fire. Cockroaches, Christmas trees...

"But Nikki was always my favourite target if I was in the mood for serious arson."
