Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

For Tommy Lee - drummer of the infamous hard rock "hair" band Motley Crüe and persistent fodder for scandal-hungry tabloids - a life without drugs, decadence and depravity was one not worth living. Throughout his tumultuous existence, Lee had done more drugs, drank more alcohol and bedded more hookers and porn stars than could be imagined. Along with bandmates Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars, Lee helped create chart-topping heavy metal that emerged in the early 1980s to reshape popular music. Despite his talents as a drummer - his skills were long been admired by the angst-ridden male teen set - Lee had become most famous for his run-ins with the paparazzi, particularly in regards to his rocky and reportedly violent marriage to Pamela Anderson. As if hounded by a black cloud, Lee suffered one public indignity after another throughout the 1990s, culminating in a six month jail term for physically abusing Anderson. Never one to be deterred, Lee emerged from his numerous debacles with a renewed attitude and spirit, even to the point of reconciling his long-running feud with lead singer Neil to reform Motley Crüe for a successful reunion tour.
