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.
