He's not really a technical sort. To me, he sounds rather flat and terribly boring. I actually don't think he's really an improvement over Mike. Tommy Lee is the sort of musician that is more known for his antics than his actual skills (i.e. playing and hanging upside down on his 360 drum kit).

He should recruit the drummer from MCR now that they're dead

Well if he tours, he better bring the roller coaster kit. Or maybe a ferris wheel drum kit and they can set up hot dog stand-shaped amps in front of it and Bildo can throw back some tube steaks between songs.

There are a few things that can be inferred from this.

1) Billy has the cash to hire expensive drummers. Tommy Lee has the name recognition to be able to charge a pretty penny for his time.
2) Even though Billy has the cash, he had to skip over a bunch of names on a very long list of session drummers before he got to Tommy Lee. That means nobody wants to work with him.

This partnership won't last more than a month and everything we hear about Tommy Lee out of Billy's mouth from July onward will be trash talking.

This news was also released in the middle of the night. What are the chances we all heard this news before Mikey did?

This is OK news

Drums on the new album will be better than the last.

Tommy is a good rock drummer

We'll never see him play live with bill. Certainly not this year, since Crue is on your starting this summer.

no matter who the drummer was going to be, this was going to be the outcome. I guess Tommy was one of the few that were up for the gig.
billy "tommy was a degenerate, drug consuming pedophile, it was a huge mistake having him in the band"
tommy "yup that's me!"



if they're just going to get a studio drummer, it would have been cool to get Jimmy. I'm sure he'd be interested in the 3 week contract, no tour, no bullshit. In and out, cash his cheque & let billy go on tour with what ever clown of his choice. let billy engage in his antics knowing that the SP names are tarnished just a little less then if it was some other clown on the recordings.

Actually, he isn't a "bad" drummer. I don't know how much Billy knows about drums, but if Billy has kinda given him the idea of how Pumpkin drums (not counting Oceania) usually sound, (a lot of fills and Jimmys regular "offbeats"), then fuck it, the recordings might actually result in some good shit.

Even if Jimmy would have been up for it...I highly doubt that Billy asked him before he gave Tommy Lee a call.

The answer to anything corgan related is always "circus"

It answers everything, just try!

Jimmy could easily pull in a cool mil doing a world tour with some A-lister like Ringo Starr or Elton John. Sure those guys are very talented, but drumming for them would be a pretty mindless and easy gig for Jimmy.

But he doesn't do it. Why? He's got two kids and doesn't want to be absent while they grow up. I think you're right in that Jommy would be alright with such an arrangement, but who knows what kind of baggage has kept that from happening.

This. Also better than Mike Burns. I'm happy enough. He's pretty shit. But at least, I don't imagine, he won't be be coming in to try and copy Jimmy's style. He'll bring ~some~ semblance of ability and experience to the table beyond what burn was able to offer.

The long and the short. It's pretty shit. But MIKE IS OUT. WHOOOO-HOO!!!!

Billy is doing hair metal album so the drums will be 4/4 with some simple fills and zero offbeat hits.

You don't know that it's gonna be hair metal because of Lee's "80's metal past".
I'm actually inclined to believe Corgan only writes metal with an MCIS kind of dark tone. Jellybelly styled riffs would be epic on this album. Dadrock would however not surprise me if he skips his promise of actually making a metal album.
