The other day while still on my Smashing Pumpkins kick, I was delving more into the album Monuments To An Elegy and remembered that all the drums on the album were played by Tommy Lee. Yes, Tommy Lee of Motley Crue played on a Smashing Pumpkins album. As usual with any of my delves, it got me thinking about what else Tommy has played on over the years. So, here are a handful that Tommy has guested on over the years.

The Smashing Pumpkins- Monuments To An Elegy:

Jack’s Mannequin- Everything In Transit (played on tracks 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, & 11):

Rob Zombie- Meet The Creeper (from Hellbilly Deluxe):

 

Rob Zombie- The Ballad of Resurrection of Joe and Rosa Whore (from Hellbilly Deluxe):

Post Malone- Over Now (from Beerbongs and Bentleys):

 

Guest Guitarist: Tom Morello

Tom Morello is one of the most innovative guitarists of the last 25 years. I’d dare say he’s up there in terms of style and influence with the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix and countless others. There is no denying he has a unique style and a distinct sound. So it’s only natural that when you hear him play, you know it’s Tom. Over the years Tom has quietly lent his talents to a plethora of other bands and artists. Here are a few the gems he’s guested on over the years.
