Default found out my coworker went to high school with jimmy

so, i started a new job recently...and have been warming up to my new coworkers little by little...and the subject of music finally came up.

well, they are pretty much in shock over how much of a SP fanboy I am, but it was all worth it because it caused one of my coworkers to blurt out "i went to high school with jimmy chamberlin".

so here are the tidbits of information:

1. they were in the same graduating class at Joliet West high school.
2. they both used to sneak out and smoke cigarettes and ganja behind the gym of the school.
3. in the winter, they used to stand in the entrance way of the gym back doors, to stay warm.
4. jimmy was in the high school band and marching band. he played snare drum.
5. jimmy had long hair (all around his head) early on in high school, but eventually went to the mullet hair that we saw in the Vieuphoria footage.
6. neither my coworker or jimmy took year book pictures their senior year. they ditched to go smoke behind the gym.

that's about it. hopefully somebody cares about this. i was intrigued...and will try to get some more stories out of him, if there is any. they weren't really close, but just hung out because they had classes together and both smoked.

That's kinda neat. I guess that puts you at 3 degrees from Billy Corgan.

its really just a matter of geography and odds.

two jobs ago, there was a guy who was a friend of a friend of jimmy's.

my high school girl friend's cousin went to the same high school as billy.

i went to the same highschool as james iha (elk grove high school).

i grew up in elk grove village, same place billy was born.

james iha's parent's neighbor came into a deli i worked at during high school.

another girlfriend's brother met james iha at a record store in chicago.

i met a girl at a bar who ding-dong ditched billy's house.

i met a bartender who said billy threw up in his freezer at a party in wrigleyville.

my dad has a coworker whose son was an intern at 103.5 when billy and james were on modern rock live years ago. he said he picked them up food from carsons ribs.

a former friend of mine saw billy at taste of chicago once as well.

i know a friend of a friend who works at a CRC, and would keep me up to date about things like TFE recording progress and emily autumn.

Getting the picture? Its all just because of geography and odds. I generally mention SP at some point to everyone I get reasonably friendly with. People i work with, meet at weddings, meet at parties, meet at bars, coffee shops, venues.....my friends, friends of friends. So if I mention SP to lots of people who live in chicagoland, the odds are good some people will know something about james, jimmy or billy from time to time. since, afterall, they are all local heroes.

Apparently, as far as the story I was told goes, to avoid throwing up on the floor!

I think the floor would be easier to clean than a freezer.

Whatever......weird story.
