Tommy Lee (Thomas Lee Bass) (1962-     ) Tommy Lee is the drummer of Mötley Crüe, a Los Angeles glam metal band he helped found in 1981, and that has sold 80 million albums worldwide.
Lee, who has been married to actresses Heather Locklear (Dynasty) and Pame la Anderson (Baywatch), has tried to find repeat fame as a reality television star, first in Tommy Lee Goes to College, in which he moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, to take a stab at being a Cornhusker, and co-staring with Ludacris, a rapper, in the climate friendly Battleground Earth. Lee and the other three members of the band, all famous for their sexscapades, have been arrested, treated for addictions and tattooed, but only Lee became famous for a home sex video that went viral.

Mötley Crüe’s 2008 hit, “Saints of Los Angeles,” seems to sum up the band members attitude to romance: “We are, we are the saints, one day you will confess/And pray to the saints of Los Angeles/ Red line tripping on a land mine, sipping at the Troubadour/ Girls passed out naked in the back lounge, everbody’s gonna score/She’s all jacked up, she’s down on her luck/You want it, you need it, the devils gonna feed it.”
