remember when he went on stern a couple times ago and said james was a dick bc he didn't ask billy to help out on his own solo record? like.... what?

he has integrity not sell out the bands legacy. well look what we have here.
The Howard Stern bit was legendary classic Billy. He was so sincere about it and so legitimately convinced he was being a good guy: "I would have done my Billy control freak thing all over James' solo record. I'm such a good friend!! Why wouldn't he just let me write all his songs....oh, and play all the instruments and hire a fancy producer and kick him out of the studio for 8 months?!!!"

Stern and Billy are a terrible match for interviews because they have the same issues.

Stern: "Everything you're saying makes complete sense to me"

Also, Oceania and Monuments were not part of Teargarden and never will be.

Billy's silence on the Mancunt/Strawberry photo thing is pissing me off more than the reunion non-invite debacle.

what else would he do, draw attention to how disgusting he and his clan is?

yo we were thinking that serves that cunt right - you got a problem with it? here have a phone vid of my toddler singing.

I'm thankful in a way for how cruel and disgusting this ended. apparently it took this much for me to stop drawing a line between the music and the people. at this point I couldn't if I wanted to. time to move on, there are decades of music and hundreds of current musicians out there worth my listening time.

Go back to sad machines if you want to blindly worship Billy and kiss his ass and make Xmas ornaments with Auggie Jup on them. He gets held accountable here for being the asshole that he is.

Plz add a poll option for "I'm probably going to go but seriously fuck Billy Corgan so so so so much for a whole bunch of reasons, of which this whole present D'arcy situation is probably about number 47 on the list"

Following on from this, what disgusting people the modern day Billy Corgan fans are: every other post on the SP Facebook is someone calling D'arcy a "junkie" (whilst conveniently ignoring the other band members' drug problems), and parroting whatever Billy said about overdubbing her parts on "the records" as an excuse to call her a shitty musician who contributed nothing. Even if you ignore her studio presence, it's still 11 years of playing on stage, tv, radio, videos, interviews, plus all the other promo shit, and it apprently means absolutely nothing. Oh yes, and then they post the mug shots. The stupidest thing is half the idiots aren't even old enough to have known the original band. I think I'd rather go to a Trump rally than risk running into one of these assholes at Billy's shitshow.

p.s. I wonder how many gigs D'arcy actually played? Would be nice to have a figure to beat them around the head with.

that's it, though - people who loved this band in the mid 90s have been gone for years for the most part. that is not the fan base he wanted to keep, and he succeeded with that.

But hey, please tell me more - as someone who realized a band called Smashing Pumpkins existed in 2012 - what the original band was or wasn't, since I am so fucking old really I hardly remember 1993... I cannot wait to hear more. I always wanted to rewrite history through the assessment of Oceania people.

Spfc has about 750, some of these were BC alone at some radio station, but they also don't have all played gigs from back then, no idea if that evens it out.

I'm somewhere in the middle. Really wanted D'arcy there but may cave if tickets get cheap enough closer to showtime in my area.

Her phone interview proved she's completely off the rails, nobody at that age with any sense of decorum would talk like that. I'm not surprised James doesn't speak to her or return her calls anymore.

Thoughts?
Have you paid attention to Billy in the last half decade? D’Arcy wouldn’t be the craziest person in the band.

I also hate when people ignore the fact that a lot of her mental health problems were likely originally caused by being emotionally abused by Billy for over a decade.

So much this. I’m a millennial but I am only a fan of the original incarnation of SP. I get really sick of seeing people parrot the bullshit Billy said about D’Arcy (and to a lesser extent James). I’ve watched enough live shows to know D’Arcy and Iha are good musicians.

As for the topic,

Yes I am absolutely boycotting the tour unless D’Arcy is there. She is my favorite member of the group and I am not supporting Corgan if he cannot at least begin to atone for his treatment of her

You'll never see that. He has never apologized for anything publically. Probably not since his 20s personally. That's what a narcissist does.

Pretty much this right here. BC's a lunatic, but I'm going for James and Jimmy. This is very probably the best it's ever going to get going forward, they're focusing on the years people give a shit about, and that's fine with me. The fact that I'm putting money in BC's pocket is unfortunate but tough shit.
