Rocker Tommy Lee publishes memoirs

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Tommy Lee's memoirs, "Tommyland," recounts his life as a rock star, husband in two failed marriages, jail time and the death of a child at his home.

After divorces from television star Heather Locklear and Playboy centerfold Pamela Anderson, 42-year-old Lee says he'd like to get married again.

"Going through life solo isn't very exciting if you can't share it with somebody, you know?" Lee says in an interview to be aired Friday on ABC's 20/20. "I need someone to play with all the time."

He says he longs for a loving relationship like the one he watched between his parents while growing up in suburban Los Angeles.

"My mom would walk by the kitchen and my dad would pinch her butt," he says. "It was really cool to see, you know?"

Two years after Lee and Locklear's 1993 divorce, the Motley Crue drummer began his stormy marriage to Anderson, which ended while he was serving a 180-day sentence for spousal abuse.

Before the split, a video of Lee and Anderson having sex was stolen and made public, eventually reaping $77 million in sales without a penny going to the couple.

Lee also talks about the 2001 drowning of a child in his swimming pool during his 5-year-old son's birthday party.

"It was the most terrible thing I've ever seen in my life," said Lee.
