I happen to like Tommy Lee and think he's a solid drummer but he's no tech wiz. Then again for Motley Crue he doesn't need to be. He's solid and fun to watch. He's clearly better than the likes of Peter Criss of Kiss and Herman Rarebell of the Scorpions. I think some people here are letting Tommy's visuals enhance their perception of his actual drum chops. Let your ears be the ultimate judge, not your eyes.
