best band, best music. Too bad, they didnt have enough love for each other to stick together as family.

:( well i think they had kinda like relationship love, where eventually even if you care for them, you get sick of it. but its all part of what made them great.

I dont agree with that. Thats like saying, if someone is married, and the woman be like: " I love my husband, but i am getting sick of him and his ways, so i am leaving him in the near future "

or

" I love my wife, but i had sex with another woman 2 nights ago "

Its all bs, and its sad. I really dont know what went wrong with the smashing pumpkins or other groups as well. Seems like alot of groups break up over dumb reasons.

I don't think they could've done much more if they were together. They were just too burnt out from one another. D'arcy's coke habit, Jimmy having left, James being difficult, it just wasn't really worth it. And I really didn't like the band all that much when somebody else was always having to fill in (I didn't dig the drummer guy, and Melissa was cool, but not really a Pumpkin). Rather than having sub-par albums come out and have only 2 to 3 of the original members touring at any one time, I think it's best they split ways.

They should've just released (and made more songs - if that's even possible) while they were together. That's my only regret.

You can never get enough 92-95 Pumpkins. Ever.

Man. That was such a long, long time ago. I didn't get into the band until '96, but that doesn't mean I can't understand the fact that it has been so long since the Gish, Siamese, MCIS, and even Adore days.

I still can't believe SP broke up back in 2000. Gish and Siamese Dream have been around for over 10 years (Gish almost 15!), MCIS will too, shortly. Unbelievable.

But, yeah... pics like the one above make me miss the band an awful lot. I can't believe that time period is gone for good. Corgan and Iha will be 40 soon enough. When SP broke up Corgan was what, 33? Crazy.

This sounds so one week after SP broke up, but dammit, I wish they'd just get over their drama and get back together before they get too old. They're still young enough to be the Smashing Pumpkins again, but in another five, ten years? I'm not so sure.

The thing that sucks the most about all of this is that SP could so very easily get back together, and they were such an important band. Nirvana or Alice in Chains really can't get back together. The Pumpkins can. So what if Darcy won't come back, there's always Melissa. The band's two most important members are alive and well, no drug problems or anything. Yet they won't embrace that fact and get SP back together to make more awesome music. I don't buy the whole "we'd turn into another Aerosmith" thing.

Half the problem with alt. rock is that all of the bands that were there when it all started are not anymore. Most of them can't be. SP can. I bet Dave Grohl and Jerry Cantrell would kill to play with their bands just *once* more. The Pumpkins could do that tomorrow for hours, days, weeks if they wanted to.

I also can't believe I'm not tired of their discograpy by now. SP and Radiohead, that is... every other band I listened to during that time period sucks to me now.

Corgan always says "20 years from now what we did will make sense," but is he right? I hope so... they worked too hard and there was way too much output for them to be simply forgotten about as they currently are now.
