4. Tommy Lee's Sex Tape
If you want to blame someone for Paris Hilton's and Kim Kardashian's fame, you might point a finger at Tommy Lee. As those two celebutantes discovered, thanks to Lee, the quickest path to the spotlight is an illicitly released sex tape. Back in 1995, Lee discovered that footage of his sexcapade with then-wife Pamela Anderson was stolen and released on the internet, becoming one of the most heavily watched videos of all time.
3. Nikki Sixx Dies
Though there have been plenty of rock stars whom many believe faked their own deaths, only one definitely came back from the grave. That would be the Crüe's Nikki Sixx. On the band's 1987 tour with Guns N' Roses, Sixx overdosed on heroin in Slash's hotel room. When the ambulance came, Sixx was declared legally dead by the paramedics before being revived by CPR. To celebrate his resurrection, Sixx wrote the song "Kickstart My Heart."
