From Wikipedia:

"Upon leaving The Smashing Pumpkins, Mike Byrne continued his efforts with his local band Bearcubbin!, in the Pacific Northwest. They have released 2 full length albums. During their visit to SXSW in 2014, they won the award for 'Worst Band Name' out of the thousands of bands attending."

What he is doing now is unclear.

I do feel bad for Byrne.

He clearly wasn’t ready for the big time.

Corgan ruined his career. He’s always going to be “that kid who played with the Smashing Pumpkins.”

He probably got paid shit too.

Flashback (2012):

Quote:
“The whole thing fell apart when Mike told me we had to cancel because Billy Corgan was like, ‘Oh, we have to be doing demos in Los Angeles during the time that you’re supposed to be on tour.’ And he told him super last minute in Portugal. So I had to cancel all the dates,” Scott says. “And the crappy thing is they didn’t even go to do demos. Mike was home during the time we were supposed to go on tour.”

For his part, Scott doesn’t begrudge Byrne’s dominance of the band’s schedule. Thankfully, Scott isn’t just wasting away when Byrne is traversing the globe with Corgan and company. He studies electrical engineering at the University of Portland and eventually plans to use what he’s learning to build amps and pedals.

For now, Scott is fine being “that guy in the band with The Smashing Pumpkins drummer.”

“I do my best not to trade on his name and be like, ‘Hey, he’s in The Smashing Pumpkins, so we deserve this.’ I do my best not to use his job as a way to launch this band,” Scott says, starting to laugh. “Because I really think that people who are into The Smashing Pumpkins would f---ing hate Bearcubbin’.”

Bearcubbin' has to be up there with "Celebration" as one of the worst band names I've ever heard. They deserved to win that "award" at SXSW (if that's even true).

That said, I guess I'm torn on how bad I feel for the guy. I mean, on one hand, I'm almost envious of him that he got to play in my favorite band for a while. On the other hand, he was nearly universally reviled by fans due to not being even close to the same level of talent as Jimmy and it sounds like Billy treated him like shit (which is SOOOOO uncharacteristic of him). As for whether Billy ruined his career... I don't know if you can really say that because it's highly unlikely anyone would even know who he was had he not been in SP. So while I don't see any other huge artists hiring him to be part of their bands, I'm sure he'll still get some work if he wants it.

He left the building, as I recall.

It's not so much the smile when he was caught, but the creepy stare right before that
