Hellraising rocker Tommy Lee was so desperate to woo actress SHANNON DOHERTY in a plush California eaterie, he bought her two sexy thongs.

The MOTLEY CRUE star - ex-husband of Baywatch babe PAMELA ANDERSON - began his quest to date the brunette by sending an expensive bottle of champagne to her table at the Malibu restaurant, according to Britain's DAILY STAR tabloid.

After this romantic gesture failed, the heavily-tattooed rocker ran across the road to a sexy lingerie store - and swiftly returned to give the BEVERLY HILLS 90210 star two gift-wrapped thongs with his phone number on the outside of the box.
