show your love ballroom blitz style.

jimmy is the reason i got into the pumpkins. i became so infatuated with his playing when i was young that i would listen to other bands and and say 'this would be better if jimmy played it.' i even began to hate a lot of music because the drumming was sub-par.

i started writing music in the hopes that i could find a drummer that would have as much of an impact as jimmy had on the pumpkins. writing is so much easier when you've got someone that good.

I've been writing music and programming drum tracks as if someone as good as Jimmy Chamberlin were my drummer, which really backed me into a corner trying to find somebody who can actually play this shit. I've been finding out the hard way most available drummers play at about the equivalent "power and barre chord" level to us guitarists. THese guys can't even keep time on the left foot while they do anything else. Shameful.

same here. thankfully i've got a kit and have developed a very jimmyesque style of drumming, so i'm hoping that if i can't quite play on my own stuff i'll at least be able to get to the level of ability where i can show another drummer how its done.

Are girls allowed here at all? You guys snuck into the girlie-thread... Oh and: Billy Corgan, Billy Corgan, Billy Corgan! Don't ban me. *sigh*

he's talking about jimmy's influence on him, musically. nothing ban worthy.

Cool, I won't tell. :) God, this banning threat sure sucks all the fun outta the threads. I loved reading your banter. Anyway, I read somewhere that Jimmy is the heart of the band, while Billy is the mind. Something about the heart pumping blood so the mind can function and get inspired, or similar. I thought it was a beautiful analogy. And true!

did it mention the mind giving shitty ideas to the heart?

bands with weak drummers aren't really bands at all. Totally agree - without Jimmy's drumming pumpkins would be so much less of a band.

ciGarski
01-15-2008, 10:32 PM
adore.

flyfire
01-15-2008, 10:35 PM
yeah okay, agreed. but with adore the abscence of Jimmy's was so marked that the record is such a point of difference.

flyfire
01-15-2008, 10:37 PM
I guess what I'm saying is I would prefer adore with Jimmy.

ciGarski
01-15-2008, 10:38 PM
jimmy's too much of a presence for an album like that.

flyfire
01-15-2008, 10:46 PM
yeah and that's why I'd want to what he would have done differently. This of course is moot beacuse then we wouldn't have the aadore we have now.

but he plays the adore songs so perfect... get it?

i mean live especially. perfect with that tambourine of his. classic.

flyfire
01-15-2008, 10:55 PM
got it :)

tambourine is so hard to get right though, it's a very fine line between complementing the other instruments/voice and just cringeworthy.

my comment was in response to ciGarski, actually. i think you and i would agree on the subject.
