Tommy Lee playing drums with Smashing Pumpkins

Motley Crue is saying a long farewell with their sold-out final tour, but it looks like drummer Tommy Lee is already looking toward the future.

Lee is in the studio with Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan laying down drum tracks for the band's album "Monument to an Elegy." Corgan posted a photo of himself and Lee on the Smashing Pumpkins' website with the message:

"Here's a shot from the mission out west. Just finished round 1 of tracking drums with Tommy Lee for the new the Smashing Pumpkins album. Shockla-locka-boom. Yes, that T Lee for all 9 songs of 'Monument To An Elegy.'"

"Monument to an Elegy" is one of two albums Corgan says the Pumpkins will release in 2015.

Wonder if Corgan let Lee bring his cowbell?
