Meanwhile, Jones made one last stab at returning to the drumkit: he auditioned for Smashing Pumpkins during Jimmy Chamberlin's absence but wasn't surprised when he lost the gig to Kenny Aaronoff. "I pretty much knew they wanted him. In fact, I'd heard that Billy Corgan had told his manager, `I want a pro; I don't want some kid from some dumb alternative rock band' -- which was basically me. The audition was pretty funny -- for one thing, Kenny was already there and I had to audition on his kit. We were playing `Rhinoceros,' from Gish, but we stopped halfway through because the band didn't remember it. Then Billy started playing this Pink Floyd space jam. In the middle of that, D'Arcy stopped playing her bass and started rooting through this Barney's bag she had from shopping. So I figured, okay. I know where this is going. I heard through the grapevine that Billy Corgan liked my playing but didn't think I was hitting hard enough. And by then I was glad that I could just go ahead with this band."

:erm

Yeah. That's gotta break a kid's heart.

But hey, at least he got to try.
