tom cruise: "i cant go on vacation because of sp!"

he'd like to enjoy life and run about playing, but sp has stopped him from doing such nonsense. sp should be ashamed. tom and his kids deserve a nice vacation.

Jimmy is 43, when he was 40 i.e. in 2004 he wasnt really doing much. So he kept to his statement. Props Jimmy!

If you think about it, when Jimmy said that, he was into a ton of drugs. If he'd continued to do the drugs, he might not have made it to 40, let alone as a rock musician. So maybe he's found a rejuvenation now that drugs aren't taking a toll on his body.

btw, i know the nephew of Bill wyman (BIll PErks) but his parents are divorced so his dad is never with him so he never gets to see bill wyman and plus bill is afraid of flying- the reason he quit the stones.......haha

Well, then there's the most famous one "Hope i Die Before i Get Old" - Pete Townshend, who is now 62 years old and still releasing albums.

the bottom line: Things Change, though i think Jimmy's going to be sticking to his statement about not playing Jellybelly anymore

pete townshend is still a good rocker, the rolling stones are a bunch of old saggy men on stage not playing very well. dont get me wrong, i LOVE the stones, but they gotta stop

Wouldn't that be more appropriate for a heroin addict?

I hear they rubbed elbows with BOB DILLION once or twice. Har har. :D
(Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Seriously, though...at that stage in his life, it sounds as if Jimmy might have very much carried that "live for the day," almost fatalistic type of mentality with him. Which seems like it might complement habits such as...heroin abuse.
Also, however, when one is "young," I think that a lot of us imagine that we're somehow going to become different people (with different feelings) as some necessary, inevitable process of aging. But then when we get "there" chronologically we discover that our inner essence is exactly the same and it's the mirror's reflection that must be deceiving us! (Actually, this part is really fucking unsettling to me...)

I think it's because when you look around yourself right now at all of the older people, they seem so different than they were back in the 70's or before. So you would only expect the same to happen to you.

I think it will be fun to get old. At least until the death part. :(

This is why The Future Embrace was a good album (minus To Love Somebody). We can all relate to the main theme.

I'm speaking of that innate inner feeling of identity that we all carry...not really what could possibly be termed "growing as a person." Of course most of us evolve and develop in that respect.

He's not playing jellybelly so that's O.K

I believe those comments came from an interview he did for Modern Drummer magazine back in 1996. I still have that issue... but haven't read it in probably 10 years, hehe. I also seem to recall Jimmy talking about some demos he'd done with Billy that were very unlike the Pumpkins and they use a banjo or something (Meladori Magpie comes to mind - but that's no banjo).

Lame. Jellybelly is one of the top tracks I'd like to hear them introduce on the next leg of the tour.
