Default Drummers Resource Podcast: Jimmy Chamberlin - "Rock, Revelry and Redemption"

Jimmy (at 44:37):

"We're talking about doing some touring later this year."


Direct link:

http://media.blubrry.com/drummers_re...rce/DR_248.mp3






"Jimmy Chamberlin, the founding and long-time member of the mega-band, The Smashing Pumkins has had a wild ride…and it’s just getting started. Since the 80s he’s been the driving force behind The Pumpkin’s success, serving as not only their drummer but also as their long term strategists while running their entire global touring business. Jimmy’s tenure came to a screeching halt after a misfortunate incident in ’96, only to be reinstated in the band in 1998. The time since has given Jimmy a new perspective on fame, success, and what’s truly important in life. Although still technically a member of Smashing Pumpkins, a lot of Jimmy’s time is dedicated to the tech and investing world, serving as CEO of LiveOne before starting his own company, Blue J Strategies.
Jimmy Chamberlin talks about:

How he got into playing drums
The early years of The Smashing Pumkins
Early Big Band influences
Listening to non-genre specific music
The Jim Gordon Story
Rise to fame and the trappings of it
Drugs and the subsequent fallout with the band
Finding what’s most important in life
Advice for musicians
His new love for tech and media
Transiting into the role of CEO and founder
Much more"

Since when was Jimmy a founding member?

As I recall it was B0llz Jamez and a drum machine at the very start.

I like the part where he called out Billy for using social media to hype announcements of announcements

Definitely. Rather, it will actually come out at all

I'm excited for it; he always makes good points in talks despite being kind of an awkward public speaker. So in written form should be great

I thought it was interesting Jimmy mentioned he'd been clean since 2002: that year was a huge turning point in Corgan's songwriting as well, around the time when his new stuff started to suck and he began to make terrible decisions in the studio

What Jimmy said in this really resonated with me, and I've actually started to enjoy post 2000 performances more. You can celebrate the past but it's never going to be the same as it was

He was still drinking and smoking, which I think may be what he means. He mentioned it a couple times before and made it sound like he abstained from anything around the Zwan days.

I always assumed Billy's "drugs across borders" diss was aimed at Jimmy's continuing heroin use.

That's correct about Jimmy. Billy and Jimmy have mentioned in other interviews that Jimmy continued to use heroin until 2002.
