Rockers Smashing Pumpkins have enlisted Motley Crue legend Tommy Lee for the band’s upcoming ninth album.
Frontman Billy Corgan posted a snap of him in a recording studio with Lee on Wednesday and revealed the drummer will perform on all nine tracks slated to appear on the band’s next record, “Monument To An Elegy.”
Alongside the image, uploaded to the band’s official website, Corgan writes, “Here’s a shot from the mission out west. Just finished round 1 of tracking drums with Tommy Lee for the new the (sic) Smashing Pumpkins album. Shockla-locka-boom. Yes, that T Lee for all 9 songs of ‘Monument To An Elegy.’”
Lee’s band Motley Crue are gearing up to hit the road for a farewell tour with Alice Cooper later this year.
