Tommy Lee has joined The Smashing Pumpkins

Tommy Lee has replaced Jimmy Chamberlin as the drummer for The Smashing Pumpkins. According to a post on the Pumpkins’ website, the Mötley Crüe drummer will bring his “shockla-locka-boom” to “all nine songs of Monument To An Elegy,” one of the band’s two forthcoming LPs.

It’s unclear whether Lee will perform on that second record, or whether he’ll tour with the Pumpkins at any point in the future. Lee’s schedule would certainly seem to be clearing up soon: Mötley Crüe embarks on its farewell tour this July, with the band having signed a legally binding “cessation of touring” document earlier this year.
