Tommy Lee with the Pumpkins?

Just heard this on Facebook. Tommy may be playing on one of two upcoming albums with The Smashing Pumpkins. Anyone know what's up with Mike?

Interesting. Never been a fan of the music Tommy Lee's been associated with, but I've always really dug the way he sticks the time just so, so even though it's been a long time since I've heard any Smashing Pumpkins that grabbed me, I'll be very keen to check this out.

I have a hard time seeing him fitting in with the Smashing Pumpkins, but admittingly I am only familiar with his work with the Crue. I like both bands btw.

That's an interesting mix... considering the style drummers the Pumpkins have had in the past. Jimmy Chamberlin, Kenny Aronoff, ect...

Makes sense, Crue is doing a farewell tour this summer, so if he Tommy wants to keep drumming, why not work with another established group?
