Tommy Lee's Drum Rig: An Evolution

Today is Tommy Lee's birthday, and what better way to honor the Motley Crue drummer than with a series of wild videos of Tommy doing what he does best.  (No, you perv!  Not those kind of videos!)

Check out these awesome clips of Tommy live and the evolution of his drum rig.  For an added bonus, the last video shows Tommy and Nikki Sixx having a Jack Daniels drink-off, where Tommy polishes off a bottle while still keeping the beat.  It's pretty glorious.
