Hellraising rocker Tommy Lee loved the four months he spent in prison on assault charges in 1998, because he found a peace and quiet he has never achieved in the outside world.

The MOTLEY CRUE star was jailed for assaulting his then wife Pamela Anderson and served four months of a three year sentence at Los Angeles County Jail.

He says, "I loved prison. I thought, 'No one can f**k with me. I'm not going to have to do interviews. I'm not going to have to answer the phone.'

"Just total peace and quiet. I was, like, 'F**k, this is nice!' People looked at me like I was on crack."
