In the number 25 spot on “The 100 Most Beautiful Rock Stars On The Planet” is Tommy Lee. Although best known as the drummer for Mötley Crüe, Tommy’s musical career actually spans three and a half decades. He received his first drums before he was in kindergarten, and was in a band by the time he reached high school. Leaving high school and the band behind, Tommy joined the band Suite 19 in hopes of becoming a rock star. He soon left them to be a founding member of Mötley Crüe, currently on their final tour. He also formed the band Methods of Mayhem and has done some solo projects.
Needless to say, Tommy has been performing in a band since he was in his late teens. His years of experience reflect in his work, as does his love for what he does. It seems as though from the time he got his first drum kit, he hit the ground running and his devotion has never faded. In my opinion, this is the main quality of many that makes Tommy Lee beautiful.

He still strives to go further by pushing boundaries and testing new waters despite his already successful career. While others from his musical era have slowed down or become set in their ways, Tommy still dives headfirst into new projects with the same excitement and vigor he had when he founded Mötley Crüe.
These days, Tommy is rounding out the final tour with Mötley Crüe, collaborating with fellow musicians, producing, and has teamed up with a popular DJ to produce a new sound stemming from techno house music. Before any of you die-hard rockers out there become disgruntled, I suggest visiting http://www.tommylee.com/ and watching some of the videos on the site with Tommy on the mix table.
I am also a rocker chick through and through, but I really like what Tommy has done. Not only is he good at it, but his heart is completely in it and can be clearly seen in the videos on his website.
Tommy Lee’s undying devotion is what makes him the number twenty-five "Most Beautiful Rock Star on the Planet." Thank you Tommy for the past thirty-six years and counting.
