Billy Corgan, Tommy Lee Discuss Escalating Bromance, Giving Each Other Goosebumps and More
Tommy Lee's appearance on the upcoming Smashing Pumpkins album "Monument to an Elegy" has given birth to quite a bromance with frontman Billy Corgan.

According to the latest update, the two are now in the stage of giving each other goosebumps, as the duo remains optimistic about the quality of upcoming release.

Telling ABC News Radio how he accepted the SP invitation with plenty of enthusiasm, Lee noted that it wasn't long before he was thoroughly impressed. "He played me nine songs [and I said], 'You have a hit record on your hands, dude, and yes, I want to be a part of this!'"

Explaining how they got on the same wavelength almost instantly, Tommy was surprised with Billy's excitement. "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!' I was like, 'Wow!' It was just really cool to be appreciated that much. I just haven't felt something like that. It was really, really cool," he said.

Corgan made sure to return the praises, adding, "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. I sometimes don't receive that sort of love or praise from my own band, you know? It was really wonderful."

As reported, "Monuments to an Elegy" might see its release during 2014, before the initially-announced 2015 date. The lead single should drop by the end of the year as well, make sure to check out more info and tentative track listing here.
