room at the top: ModernPrimitive01: devilEther: STRYPERSWINE: Tommy Lee is a good drummer.  Billy Corgan is one of the worst guitarists/singers to ever record.  But he's a huge wrestling fan, so he has that going for him.  Seriously, he's huge.

I hear Tommy Lee is also huge. What if I told you Billy Corgan dedicated himself to learning Rush's 2112 note-for-note? Would your opinion of him improve?

I saw him mention that on one of Rush's documentaries. It's easy to make claims that you "used to know how to play it note for note", but until I see him actually do it I'm skeptical

Three clips should resolve your disdain for his playing...

I'm with you.  The dude is a first-class douche, but to say his stuff- at least in the 1990s- wasn't great is disingenuous.  And they absolutely rocked live.

sovietski: ModernPrimitive01: I hope the studio doesn't implode from the combined mass of Corgan and Lee's combined egos

Not long ago, a friend told me that BC had (still has?) a blog, so in a nostalgic moment, I read some of it.

In it, I learned BC is prone to word salad-itis and has procreated.

//I also learned he dated Fark's favorite MySpace Asian dwarf slut*

*IIRC


Tila Tequila.  Yeah, he dated her.  That's how legit he is.

The only way you could get any more pretentious than a Billy Corgan/Tommy Lee combo is if you put Michael Stipe at lead vocals and had Chris Martin write their songs.

I thought testosterone was an automatic disqualifier for playing with that band? Maybe excepting bassists.

Not that I care, but I can grudgingly admit Tommy Lee is a good drummer.

He's no Jimmy Chamberlain, of course. So like I said at the outset: yeah. Don't care.
