holy crap.

that video was posted on some site that was taken down minutes after i watched the video and i forgot to save it. he was wearing some crazy russian hat. he may have been playing it on a seven string but it could just be a really detuned electric.

thank you.

The song is Taproot, or at least thats what it goes by. From what I know it was taken off the D13 server (the company who made the Pumpkins and Zwan's website).

I don't really know. I'm sure some other members on this board know a lot more than me about this.

Punkishlyevil is the man. I think this is like spring 2004 or somthing like that, right? Haha, if he puts stuff like this on his own solo record, I may even consider buying it!

How much he could charge them for the collaboration (for six days)? Haha, I may break my savings' pig and if he writes for me a song like that, I may consider hiring him (I hope I could put together enough money for at least few hours)!

Watch out, Billy, here I come!

"apparently" but it doesn't seem very taproot like. It was the filename of the track when it was leaked so people assume he had written it for taproot or something.

It was earlier. When I look at mine in Explorer in detailed view, it says last modified 3/31/2004. I think its probably even earlier than that, though I don't know. My guess is late 2003 or early 2004.

haha - the following stuff is taken from here:http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=33418

The follow-up to 2002's "Welcome", "Blue-Sky Research" was produced by Michael Beinhorn in Los Angeles and features guest appearances by Billy Corgan (ex-SMASHING PUMPKINS) and Stephen Carpenter (DEFTONES). Songtitles set to appear on the CD ******* "So Eager", "What's Left", "Promise", "Forever Endeavor", "Who's To Say", "Birthday", "She", "Violent Seas", "Stay Away", "Calling" and "June" .

Apparently the guy who filmed that almost lost his job due to it leaking on the net, so way to go spreading it around.

What are they gonna call him into the office on Monday, open a laptop with netphoria on it, then look at him accusingly and say 'well?'

I remember that. Me and him talked for a while. Somehow though, I don't think it matters anymore. Last year when it got spread around majorly, yeah I understood, but now, whats the point of stopping it, when most everyone who wants it has it.

april is approaching, bill says nothing, sorry that there are some people (like me) who get somewhat excited/interested about the solo record based on this.

If I get the album and I will be asked to point out the moment when I got really interested in buying it in the first place, be it the moment I saw this clip, then!

Wow. I should have my tr00-fan card ripped up. This is the first time I've heard this.

Behind the times or not, hearing this made my day.Times like this make me realize that there's no way that I'll be disappointed by Billy's record when it finally comes out. There's just something about hearing the guy's songs that affects me like nothing else.

The song's pretty good, but what really makes it shine is the ending, with him just humming. I'm not so sure Billy was meant to use as much vibrato in his voice as he does in that clip and in in recent years. It just doesn't sound as cool. But the end of this song is very pretty.
