  • In the late 1970s Tommy Lee’s band, Suite 19, was a regular on the Sunset Strip club circuit in Los Angeles along with other up-and-coming acts such as Van Halen and Quiet Riot. He became acquainted with bassist Nikki Sixx, whose bands Sister and later London played the same circuit.
  • Sixx was forming a theatrical band that borrowed heavily from Sister’s fusion of occult imagery with a theatrical heavy metal performance, and became a fan of Lee’s drumming.
  • It was during this time period that Tommy Lee dropped his surname and earned the nickname “T-bone” due to his 6′ 2½″ height and his lean physique. When London finally broke up in 1981, Lee and Sixx decided to form a new group together. Shortly afterward, guitarist Mick Mars joined the band.
