Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee will contribute to The Smashing Pumpkins' upcoming albumMonument to an Ellegy.

In separate interviews with ABC News Radio, Lee and Pumpkins front-man Billy Corgan gushed over their collaboration.

Lee says that he and Corgan really keyed in on each other, "I remember him jumping up and down in the studio after one of the drum takes [yelling], 'This is exactly what I want! Oh my God! Finally!'"

Corgan really appreciated Lee's work and the feeling is mutual.  Lee continues, "That guy is so smart and so talented, I've got nothing but massive respect for him and adoration, and when he goes and writes those wonderful things about me, it's like I get goosebumps."
