Default The reunion is still up in the air apparently

Skip to 2:28



"There's no way the band could work without those personal relationships having some sort of integrity to them."

This came out four days ago so I guess it's the latest info we have. He teased the comeback so many times a while back and Jimmy even confirmed the original line-up would be coming back in 2018, but I don't know what to read in to this. It was supposed to be a done deal with only specifics to lock down. My guess is, they tried to work it out, but Billy clashed with the others. Probably over money/ego. Hence the comment about only returning if the relationships have "integrity".

I don't see CORGAN's statement as a hint for problems with the actual comeback activities. He only shared his view why the band fell apart.

After Corgan told Chamberlin he was out, the drummer “unloaded” on Corgan, unleashing 20 years worth of pent-up insults. “So I was like, ‘Fuck you,'” Corgan recalls. “‘Go ride around in a white van for the rest of your life.'”

In an interview in the latest issue of NME, Corgan offered some harsh words on former drummer Jimmy Chamberlin's 2009 statement about leaving the band, that implied that he felt they were unjustly cashing in on the Pumpkins' name. "See now, here is a perfect opportunity for me to bury Jimmy as a f---ing liar. But I won’t. That’s a lie. That statement’s just a flat-out lie,” said Corgan. "I’m OK with Jimmy. We don’t have a relationship at the moment, but I mean, I have no ill will. I want to see him do well."

"James Iha, I think, is just a piece of s---. I think he’s one of the worst human beings I’ve ever met in my life."

Let’s not forget Billy has met Alex Jones on multiple occasions.

In the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Mma Ramotswe drives a tiny white van. It keeps breaking down and Mr. JLB Matekoni (who keeps having to fix it) finally convinces her to get a new van. But it just isn't the same and she gets seriously depressed about losing the old white van. She hunts it down and finds it in a junkyard and buys it back.

Fuck Billy for hating on white vans.

I think Billy realizes that a reunion is his last chance at reaching any sort of significant relevancy...

Having Jimmy back adds a certain level of authenticity, and he could probably continue on playing theaters and amphitheaters if he keeps him around.... But Corgan on his own under the SP banner would quickly be approaching state fair levels of relevancy.

As much as I hated the Byrne lineup, that shit he had going on with the Rage drummer was even worse... And then to think he had the Theory Of A Deadman drummer all lined up to join the mighty SP... God, I'm appreciative that that didn't happen. I think that would have been the last straw for me.

You should read the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. It is about white males and their power over others. You would love it.

Yeah, all he's saying is that the band fell apart because their relationships fell apart, and that there's no way they would be able to get back together unless those relationships were in a good place again. This doesn't imply any recent difficulty.

I believe that any attempt to tour arenas with the original lineup will result in Groupon ticket sales. There’s no way 12,000 people show up to see James and Darcy in the Rat in a Cage band.

in his head Billy is picturing a GNR sized arena tour, he will try shopping this around and promoters will want small theaters and Billy will pull the plug.

I'll believe it when I see it.
and if it does, it'll be a tour smaller than arising.

A reunion would tarnish the legacy of the original lineup. We all know that 2007-present has been nothing more than Billy's often ill-advised solo excursions under the SP name. Even Jimmy agreed and wanted no part of it after 2009. At least the original 1988-2000 SP was kind of left to memory in its own time capsule. I don't think anyone really even needs a reunion except for Billy.
