Collateral Damage Mounts in Smashing Pumpkins Studio

In the steady stream of recording studio updates from  Billy Corgan ,  Smashing Pumpkins  fans have been kept abreast of the status of vocal tracks, unearthed demos of a teenage Billy, guitar riffs, the value of hot tea, the recruiting of  Motley Crue  drummer  Tommy Lee , and many, many other elements. 

Now comes word that there are casualties -- the  latest post  from Corgan contains a list of things Tommy Lee has destroyed in the studio: "smashed heads...imploding snares, ...unbreakable sticks, and the death of microphones incapable of handling such concussive effect."

This update comes just one day after Corgan posted a picture of a rough-looking drum with the caption, "That would be a snare destroyed by T Lee, the lugs literally disemboweling from within."

Should any equipment survive Tommy Lee's assault, the Smashing Pumpkins are hoping to release a single later this year, and a full album called  Monument to an Elegy  in 2015.
