Tommy Lee: Jimmy Jaxx

Mötley Crüe´s Tommy Lee is lending his voice to The Life And Times Of Jimmy Jaxx, an animated half-hour film inspired by his own life. Lee will be the voice of Jimmy - a rocker attempting to balance an ordinary home life with a crazy lifestyle on the road.

It´s not the first time Tommy Lee has been compared to a cartoon either; in 2005 the drummer was injured by malfunctioning pyrotechnics on stage in Casper, Wyoming and described himself as a “burnt-up cartoon character”.
