Tommy Lee has done a lot of things. He's played drums with one of the best know hair bands, Motley Crue. He's had hollywood's hot babes including Pamela Anderson and Heather Locklear. He's had a reality tv show, an adult movie, a book, and much more (we'll forget about Rockstar Supernova?). In addition to all this stuff he's had many different drum equipment setups over the years. We'll profile one of his more recent drum kit setups.

Let's look at what drum gear and equipment has been seen in Tommy Lee's Drum Kit.
