I went into reading Tommyland thinking "oh this will be COMPLETELY entertaining" in not a nice way. What I didn't expect was that I would be completely enrapt in Tommy's narrative style and the stories he shares.

Tommyland isn't the normal rock star memoir. He's not sharing a particular time of his life, like Nikki Sixx did with The Heroin Diaries. Tommy Lee shares what he thinks is important. Quite surprising, there wasn't a lot about his time with Motley Crue (which might be due in part of the band bio, The Dirt.)

This is a great read for anyone who's a fan of Motley Crue and of course, Tommy Lee himself. It's a nice snapshot of someone who has had a crazy 20 year run in the music scene.
