Jimmy Chamberlin - Crazy Awesome Drummer

As Tyson Meade continues to drum-up publicity for his kick starter album campaign, in a new interview he sheds a little more light on the involvement of one Jimmy Chamberlin;
...Over the years, Jimmy and I have stayed in contact. When I came upon this idea to do this record in China with students I immediately thought it would be the perfect chance to work with Jimmy because I have always loved his crazy awesome drumming.

China Crash

Thanks to our good friend anonymous, we got a tip that Chamberlin will be playing the drums for a new record by Tyson Meade.  Meade, if you've never heard of him, is of influential & Billy Corgan favourite (who could have guessed) "Chainsaw Kittens". 

In an interview with NewsOK, Meade outlines the soon to be kickstarted project and that; "his old friend, ex-Smashing Pumpkin Jimmy Chamberlin, has agreed to play drums on the album."

So this
plus Chamberlin, could be rather interesting...

Be Awesome...

"Be awesome and just be different from every other drummer"

Lostprophets drummer, Luke Johnson, echo's Jimmy Chamberlin's (incidentally "[his] favourite drummer of all time") ethos in a new interview in Rhythm Magazine
