Tommy Lee Joins Pumpkins Record Crew

Billy Corgan and Tommy Lee

According to a post on the Smashing Pumpkins website yesterday, Tommy Lee will be playing on the next album by the Pumpkins. DRUM!, of course, already suspected this since last week when we talked to Tommy he was delayed because his publicist said he was in a recording session with Billy Corgan. [Ed. Note: Tommy will be on DRUM!’s August cover—a special issue devoted to touring drummers.]

Corgan posted a photo (above) of the control room in the studio with he and Tommy at the controls. According to Billy “Yes, that T Lee for all 9 songs of ‘Monument To An Elegy.’” That is one of two albums the band is scheduled to release in 2015; the other will be called “Day For Night.”
