Backbiter, The Bob Lee
Like most of the better drummers in L.A., Bob Lee is in more than one band. He's so explosive that he can dutifully re-create Keith Moon's rambling tom-tom fills, but he's also much more solid than the Who drummer ever was. Lee is experimental and jazz-minded enough to jam with Mike Watt, and he used to anchor the seriously bent art-jazz-punk combo Claw Hammer, but he's not too snobby to slather on face paint, light his kick drum on fire and howl at the moon with the twisted Alice Cooper-style shock rockers Fearless Leader. This afternoon, he celebrates his birthday with a couple of his other bands, including Backbiter, the long-running trio that alternates between heavy stoner rock and bursts of punk, and The Bob Lee, where he spits out Angry Samoans covers.
