Heavy-metal rockers Motley Crue have offered condolences this weekend to a 12-year-old Hollywood, Fla., youth who set his legs on fire while trying to imitate a stunt shown on one of the group's music videos. Bryan Tucker, who poured rubbing alcohol on his jeans and then torched them, burned 10% of his body before extinguishing the flames. He was reported in good condition Friday at a Florida hospital. Tucker's mother said she didn't blame Motley Crue for her son's experiment. "In my day, my mom would not let me watch Superman, because he jumped out of buildings," she said. "If you think, some of these cartoons are really rough. It didn't start with rock videos."
