    That's just one of the quotes the ENTIRE interview with Greg Kot of the Tribune and Sound Opinions is here.

    http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune.c...n-di.html#more
    i don't see whats wrong with the second quote...i actually applaud them for doing that...he obviously doesn't like the old stuff, and that's what the fans were there for...so he is gonna just play the new stuff now and basically become a new band and whoever likes them for the new stuff will like the band and come out and see them...

    Pumpkins Inc. made me throw up in my mouth a little. Billy wants the impossible. Billy didn't like the reaction he was getting so he's taking his Pumpkin and going home. He might as well change the name of the band again.

    We found with “Zeitgeist” that the alternative audience isn’t alternative anymore. They’re a pop audience that listens to Nickelback. So doing a 10-minute song, nobody will listen to it. We have to come up with singles like “1979,” and come up with songs that sound good on the radio. We have to write those kinds of songs.
    See, this is where he is wrong. I'm not listening to Nickelback and I don't think the "alternative" crowd is listening to Nickelback now. I think Billy is wasting all of his time trying to put his finger on the pulse of cross sections of fans when the fans simply want them to rock. Fuck his genre assumptions.

    Now it really isn't the Smashing Pumpkins. Billy Corgan is out of his mind.

    Fuck Billy. I really don't know why he's going to continue using the name. They died in 2000. That's it.

    And for the record, I fucking love the Smashing Pumpkins. But Billy is FUCKING IT UP!

    Now can we all agree now that Corgan is a greedy fuckwad?

    In my opinion after Mellon Collie he's sucked - nothing worth noting at all, also one of the worst live voices in the history of rock.

    I have grown to hate him more an more with each passing news bite of his douchebaggery.

    he seems sickly though. and he's at the very least deranged enough to think the crowds he so smugly labels will still view this as the smashing pumpkins. sad.

    Well as long as people are stupid enough to hold the belief that this bastardization of the group holds any legitimacy and somehow, someway, still hope that the Pumpkins will rock out, there will be a Smashing Pumpkins...

    Fuck Billy Corgan.

    By now you have heard the news of my departure from the Smashing Pumpkins. I will say, without going into any unnecessary details that this represents a positive move forward for me. I can no longer commit all of my energy into something that I don’t fully possess. I won’t pretend I’m into something I’m not. I won’t do it to myself, you the fan, or my former partner. I can’t just, “Cash the check” so to speak. Music is my life. It is sacred. It deserves the highest commitment at every level and the Pumpkins are certainly no different. I’m sorry but it really IS that simple. There is no drama, bad blood, or anything else but a full commitment to music. My best goes out to Billy and I’m glad he has chosen to continue under the name. It is his right. I will continue to make music with the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex as well as pursuing other musical interests. I feel that I have a long way to go and a lot to give. Thanks to everyone for your kind words and support through all of this. I am constantly humbled by all of you! It is an honor and a privilege to play music for a living and I don’t take it for granted not even for a second.

    Stay tuned……. JC

    Adore is a great album start to finish. Live on that tour his voice sounded pretty fucking great to me.

    I'm with most who think the band started sucking with Machina.

    I felt bad for Jimmy watching Billy rant. Glad he's moved on, and left Mr. Crazy to do his own crazy thing.

    Seriously though, i'm done paying attention. Goodbye, favorite band from high school!

    I don't know if he was fully invested with Billy's philosophy, but when Billy was griping at the meet-and-greet about how the band is viewed by fans, Jimmy spoke up a few times and echoed exactly what Billy just said. I am sure on some level he agreed with him.
