I'm sure we'd all have loved to have that happen to us at 20 years old.

Entertainment Weekly gave the effort a "D," calling the poems "both pretentious and confoundingly esoteric."

eh, i don't think mike will go down the same path. he's had too much success. at this age, billy was obsessively working his ass off to prove to the world that he was a worthwhile human being through rock. i think mike already knows he's a worthwhile human being.

Yeah. I think Mike probably came from a comfortable, stable, middle class (possibly relatively privileged) upbringing and is that thoroughly generation Y type kid that had his parents (and everyone else) work hard to bolster his self esteem, give him all the possibilities in the world, etc. His sense of unbridled wander and positivity sounds like an interview from a red shirt on the college team.

Cool kid. I like that he is so mellow & humble about his situation.

if he really respected the smashing pumpkins, he would quit the band and tell billy to bring back jimmy.

i have nothing against him. it is not his fault jimmy isn't in the band anymore. hopefully his playing will improve.

that song on that tour was the destruction of whatever was left of his vocal chords.

but it was worth it

I had nothing personally against Matt Walker, except knowing that he wasn't Jimmy. I was definitely looking for him to fuck up the playing of songs but it never really materialized and I came to accept, grudgingly, that he was quite passable as a replacement for him.

Nah, that would have to be the Machina tour. There was some insane screaming on that one (eg., during Once in a Lifetime...he even went cookie monster on the vocals briefly.)
