i for one totally believe you're a new user or an old one who never really posted much but now, due to his advanced intelligence, knows the politics of the board as if they've been reading it every day for the past five years.

Advanced intelli-what? The latter. Long time listener, first time caller. I think I only check in when there is a tour or album cycle. I visited Netphoria the site, but didn't get on the board until the reunion. I was excited to hear the new band and felt that it was always Jimmy and Billy anyway. I fought with people here butthurt over D'arcy and James. I came to realize only recently that although they aren't as technically proficient, the intangibles they offered are nearly as important. So I've only come to know the bitter angle of the board. I'm astonished by the wealth of knowledge here for a guy/band that is largely hated. I was so overwhelmed as a music fan by SP from 91-00 that I really feel Billy can do no wrong. I mean he can be wrong but he earned enough creative capital from me that I will always audit what he does. I will always see him live. I'll pay to watch Jimmy drum on a pizza box. The other side is Netphoria (and most of my friends); so blown away by the early output that anything that falls shy can fuck off. Some of it is age. Would old fans be moved by "Hummer" if it came out today? That's probably a bad example, but you know what I mean. Sometimes I hate it here because it's like looking under the hood. I just want to know the weird misanthrope, prolific songwriter/classic guitar god not the weird, mercurial guy that can't make his mind up and fucking stick to it. Never meet you idols. I liked KISS in grammar school because they were like gods. Get to know those guys and you're like, "fuck them!"

i think we just see all the stuff he does between albums etc that you've probably missed. i would have said the same thing when the reunion started, that he had enough goodwill in me to always see him. but not anymore. i even drove 1000 miles to asheville. i went to plainsong in 2006. prob not going to shiny and oh so bright, though. too much money.

I have to agree. Some already have their mind made up, before things even happen.

Lol my thoughts exactly. I was already curious how Billiam was handling James' schedule with APC while they prepare for the tour. It makes sense that he wants "101%" of his time if these shows are going to be as big and grandiose as he claims.

I think most of us were optimistic around the Ogilala release and his interviews during that period. He really sounded changed, fatherhood had sobered him up, etc

but then this whole shitshow

Why the hell would we trust him at this point

Mike's temporary replacement will be none of than my longtime friend and one of my favorite drummers, Jimmy Chamberlin (JC Complex/Zwan). We want to reiterate that this is a temporary situation and Mike remains part of the Smashing Pumpkins"

The actual tour logo image/font seems at odds with the rest of the handwritten type font merch and promo ads. The old SP heart logo makes more sense with these written lyrics merch than that horrible upgraded computer looking heart logo. Pick a style and stick with it.

The new ostentatious open-heart-disease look fits perfect with the actual situation of the band
