A Perfect Circle, at the Jubilee Auditorium tonight, *******s the lead singer from Tool and roadie-turned-bandleader Billy Howerdel. They were recently joined by the "new guy," James Iha, late of the Smashing Pumpkins. Billy Corgan, meanwhile, has a new band called Zwan.

From one Billy boss to another, Iha says he didn't join A Perfect Circle to be part of some '90s family rock tree - which, if you started mapping it out, would start to look like a Eric Clapton-Jimmy Page flow chart - and that this recent "phenomenon" of cross-pollination between grunge bands "just seems something that rock writers want to grab hold of."

Bands like Audioslave and Jane's Addiction obviously have good things going.

the truth, it is not. Audioslave sucks cock, and the new Jane's addiction single does as well.

are you fucking kidding me? Songs like True Nature, Strays, Just Because, etc. are just as good as the the songs Janes put out 12 years ago with Ritual de Habitual.

Um, no. The new album is good but nowhere near as interesting as their older stuff.

After Billy Corgan broke up the Pumpkins - in a classy move, he made the announcement on the radio without telling his bandmates, though he'd talked about ending it several times previously - Iha was glad.



The band members didnt know they were breaking up?
