Nikki Sixx, the co-founder and iconic bass player of Mötley Crüe, has celebrated the 58th birthday of his bandmate Tommy Lee while expressing the most sincere feelings of himself about Lee and his wife Brittany in an open letter on Instagram.
As the great drummer and the founding member of the band, Tommy Lee, has stepped into 58 this year, nearly all of his bandmates and friends have wished a very happy birthday to him on social media.
The official account of the band, the frontman Vince Neil, and the bassist Nikki Sixx have gladdened Lee through their lovely messages together with displaying some of the amazing throwback pictures of him.
With a hilarious photo of themselves taken in a concert area, Sixx has opened up about the irreplaceableness of Tommy Lee in his life. He called him the globe-trotting, music-making, hotel wrecking, badass drummer while admitting he has been fortunate enough to be Lee’s bass player for 40 years.

“Happy birthday to my brother, globe-trotting, music-making, hotel wrecking, badass drummer/band mate and all around kick ass best friend on earth Tommy Lee.
