Tommy Lee

Thomas Lee Bass was born October 3, 1962 in Athens, Greece. His mother was a Miss Greece and his father was a U.S. soldier and soon brought the family back to the United States, where they settled in Southern California.

Tommy's first rock band was Suite 19. He left in 1980 to form Mötley Crüe, which soon put out a self-produced debut album titled Too Fast for Love. The band signed a deal with Elektra Records, and they remixed and rereleased the album in 1982. The following year, the group released Shout at the Devil and Theater of Pain, which broke them to a large audience.
Mötley Crüe quickly lived up to its rock 'n' roll image. Drugs, sex and the wild side not only showed in its music but its lifestyle. In 1984, lead singer Vince Neil got into a drunken-driving accident in which fellow rocker Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle was killed. Four years later, Nikki Sixx was pronounced dead after an overdose but was revived, inspiring the song "Kickstart My Heart."

Unlike the '80s, the '90s proved to be a bit more difficult for T-Bone. His seven-year marriage to Heather Locklear ended in 1993, and he wed Pamala Anderson after only a three-day courtship. They had two sons, Brandon Thomas Lee and Dylan Jagger Lee.
Wedded bliss did not last, and in 1998, Lee was sentenced to six months in jail for battery. In 1999, Pam and Tommy reconciled. That same year, Tommy officially left Mötley Crüe to focus on his family and his new project, Methods of Mayhem. His marital reunion, however, was short-lived.

Finally single, clean and sober, Tommy recently released his latest album, Never a Dull Moment, a apt description for his life.
