I mean, I am a person that believes that one day, they WILL be back together, maybe when they're all 50 years old or something, and maybe just for a small reuninion tour. think of how many bands have gotten back together. billy and jimmy are already playing together. and melissa and james have their little thing going. who's to say that they won't get back together?

KRAMER: I think it's over. We had a big fight, she threw me out, I started walkin', and now I'm lost downtown! I don't have any money. I don't recognize anybody. I miss home, and I don't even know how to get there.
JERRY: What's around you?
KRAMER: I'm lookin' at Ray's Pizza. You know where that is?
JERRY: Is it Famous Ray's?
KRAMER: No. It's Original Ray's.
JERRY: Famous Original Ray's?
KRAMER: It's just Original, Jerry!
JERRY: Well, what street are you on?
KRAMER: Hey, I'm on first and first. How can the same street intersect with itself? I must be at the nexus of the universe.
JERRY: Just wait there. I'll pick you up, and, Kramer, stay alive! No matter what occurs, I will find you!
KRAMER: Aah!

I don't even need them to have a reunion as such. I'll shell out money just to hear them come back together as a Rush cover band.

I'll refer to the interview on Sound Opinions which took place on Nov. 28, 2000 with Billy and Jimmy.......
(paraphrasing of course)

"We have discussed this. This is probably the last time we'll ever play live, but there is a possibility where we would make another album together. Possibly under a different name. But there is a 99.9% chance that this is the last time you will see us live."

So it really depends if they want to make music together again. Take the quote as you want it. Remember, Billy did say once that it was doubtful that Jimmy would ever rejoin the band......anything is possible I guess.

i bet there's a lot of people here that wish they could be back together, but i just don't think they will.. i know about people that never have the opportunity to see them live and would kill to go to a SP concert, and it's bacause of them i hope they will play another time all together..
but if billy and the others decided to disband, it just means that it's right this way.. accept that =)

Yeah, and Michael Jordan said that there was a 99.9% chance that he would not come back a 3rd time. And Billy has more in common with Jordan than anyone in this country. They're both 90's Chicago heroes, they're both tall and bald, they both claimed that they would leave Chicago once they "ended" their careers then ended up staying there, they're both making comebacks soley because they're old and bored, and so far, they're both sucking in their comebacks.

So if you use the old a = b = c formula, I think you can easily figure out whether the Pumpkins will get back together again or not.

i was looking through who would be playing in my area at pollstar a couple months ago and i saw that Eric Burdon and the New Animals would be playing near by. i thought at first that this might be worth seeing then thought that it would probably just be really sad.

<font color=00ff33>If Billy isn't killed within the next three or so years, everyting is going to be perceived as a joke. It's more than apparent that he is past his prime, and he's just tapped out. EVERY Zwan song is cliche. There is seriously no way around it. The Pumpkins are done, and so is Mr. Corgan.

I'm down for wishful thinking, but seriously, try to be logical here.

i dont know...maybe you thinks its ciche because might it be only his style repeating? give the man a break, they dont even have their first album out yet and your already giving up on them. its a whole new band but what are you expecting?

What's wrong with seeing a band when you or they are in their 50's? I don't see why someone seeing a reunion tour would be so pathetic, it's only a day out of their entire life. You have a rather bleak view of old age. Of course, on a similer side thought, I wonder in The Who play "My Generation" on their reunion tour.

Well, despite the fact they are a new band, they are all established musicians and if they aren't making good music now there is a good chance that they never will. I wouldn't expect the difference in Zwan's first album to the second one to be the same sort of difference seen from Gish to Siamese Dream.

I hope they don't get back together. My best guess is that they will at some point, probably without D'arcy, and I'll go see them and feel like a chump.

soundopinions.net has all the 2002 shows on the web. They said they'll post the most requested shows from past years, but they can't put everything up due to limited webspace. We should request the Billy and Jimmy one.

No matter how experienced a group of musicians are, it takes time to write good quality songs and get those songs up to par performance-wise. Billy's first songs back in 1988 were not of the same caliber of the songs he wrote in 1991... so why will it be different from 2001 to 2004?
