After Bret Michaels told the crowd at his recent Windsor, Ont., concert that he would try to return to the city next year during a joint Poison-Mötley Crüe tour, Tommy Lee and Mötley Crüe management are insisting the longtime rival rockers will not be hitting the road together.

On Tuesday, when a Twitter follower asked Lee if the rumor of a 2011 tour was true, the drummer – who is among the guys in featured in PEOPLE's new Sexiest Man Alive issue – tweeted back a definite "NO!"

He adds that fans of the band (who will celebrate their 30th anniversary next year) can vote on Motley.com for who they would like to see on the bill.
