Tommy Lee Net Worth: Tommy Lee is an American musician who has a net worth of $70 million dollars. Tommy Lee is most widely known as a musician, and the founder and drummer of Motley Crue. With Motley Crue, he has released 20 albums (studio, compilations, and live), six of which have gone platinum. He has also enjoyed a successful solo career, and is the founder of the rap-metal band "Methods of Mayhem".

Born Thomas Lee Bass on October 3, 1962, in Athens, Greece, he is best known as the founding member of heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. Tommy was raised in California where he discovered his passion for drums at the age of four. Having spent his teens listening to the likes of Deep Purple, he dropped out of school in search of his own band. As a member of the band called Suite 19, he played the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles throughout the late 1970s. This was the time when he met future Mötley Crüe's bandmate, bassist Nikki Sixx, and changed his name to Tommy Lee. Also known by the nickname "T-bone" due to his 6′ 2½″ height and his skinny physique, Lee recruited guitarist Mick Mars and singer Vince Neil to form the Mötley Crüe band. It was in 1983 that Lee first gained prominence as drummer for the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, who came to national prominence after touring with KISS. Mötley Crüe soon became famous for its maniacal concerts along with manic behavior offstage, with the heavily-tattooed Lee often leading the parade. Lee's very public personal life, which included turbulent marriages to actress Heather Locklear (1986-93) and actress/porn star Pamela Anderson (1995-98), has also had a major influence on his musical career. He made a step forward in exposing his private life in 2005, starring in his own "reality" series, Tommy Lee Goes to College, in which he attended classes at the University of Nebraska and played drums in the school's marching band. Meanwhile, he also published a memoir, Tommyland, in 2004. Lee's albums with Mötley Crüe include Shout At the Devil (1983), Girls, Girls, Girls (1987), Dr. Feelgood (1989) Red, White and Crüe (2005) and Saints of Los Angeles (2008). In addition to being Mötley Crüe's drummer, Lee founded rap-metal band Methods of Mayhem, and has pursued solo musical projects.
