Shortly after his birth Lee’s family relocated to California, where he later attended South Hills High School and Royal Oak High School. Influenced by such bands as Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Kiss and Eddie Van Halen, Tommy Lee decided to dedicate his life to music. One of the bands that Tommy Lee joined as a teenager was called “Suite 19”, which at the time achieved moderate success. Shortly afterwards, Lee met Nikki Sixx, who encouraged him to create a band, which was later joined by Mick Mars and Vince Neil. Even though Tommy Lee is best known as a drummer for Motley Crue, he has also led a quite successful solo career, plus he went on to create two more bands, namely “Methods of Mayhem” and “Rock Star Supernova”, and began collaborating with such artists as Rob Zombie and Trent Reznor’s “Nine Inch Nails”.

The band received more commercial success with the release of “Girls, Girls, Girls”, their fourth studio attempt, which produced such singles as “Wild Side” and “You’re All I Need”. The album was received well by both the critics and the audience, which showed when it peaked shortly after its release at #2 spot on the Billboard charts. The album proved to be so successful that it was later certified four times Platinum by the RIAA.

From 1992 until 2003, the band went through many issues, including conflicts with their record label, as well as changes within the group, which brought them to an artistic halt. Mötley Crüe renewed their success in 2004, when they came out with an anthology album entitled “Red, White & Crue”, which featured such singles as “If I Die Tomorrow” and “Sick Love Song”. The band ultimately released nine studio albums, the last being “Saints of Los Angeles” in 2008, although a “Greatest Hits” album came out in 2009, and the live “The End – Live in Los Angeles” in 2016, after they had disbanded.
