Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe says his favorite four-letter word — OK, his second-favorite four-letter word — is “risk.”

“We’ve always prided ourselves on being the first band to do things,” the drummer adds, citing as an example his nightly solo on the hair-metal group’s 2011 tour, which involved him playing while strapped into a miniature roller coaster made specifically for the stage. “That’s how we do things, and we definitely take some chances. Sometimes you’re biting your nails — like, ‘I hope this is the right move.'”

The band’s latest gamble? Two weeks of shows at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, an engagement being billed as the first hard-rock residency in a town more associated with the likes of Elton John and Celine Dion. “Mötley Crüe in Sin City” opens Friday and runs through Feb. 19.
