Default Re: Tommy Lee

Technical abilities doesn't make anyone a good drummer, they will only ever be useful if they help you play what's appropriate for what you're trying to say. Some genres and styles require insane chops, while others require simple and accurate grooves.

In Tommy's case, he's trying convey an attitude of fun, partying and enjoyment, and he has just the right techniques to do so. Showmanship, twirls, big movements, powerful grooves and a stage presence that many front men would envy him.
