"In the rock world there arefew figures as colourful as Tommy Lee, and not just because of his tattoos,"Sinofsky said. "This project seeks a candid glimpse behind the celebrity andtabloid personality into who Tommy really is, watching him interact withfamily, friends and business associates.

"It will be unlike anythingthe public has seen to date, helping to make a compelling figure even more so."

"I'm honoured that Bruce isturning his cameras loose on me," Lee added. "This is as honest as it gets -love it or leave it!"
