That was the best part. The nerve of the guy.

It was like "Hey you sunnuvabitch, I caught you trying to rip me off" and Monte's all "hehe oh goodness, what ever is the problem?"

nobody can ever challenge the authenticity of his fandom, that's for sure.

He loves his Smashing Pumpkins

Byrne didn't even give him an inscription or anything. What a punk!

When Mike Byrne signs anything, it immediately diminishes the value.

Is Mike still alive?

One has to worry about it at 250 bucks...

Remember when Billy hired Mike Burns an unknown 19 year old drummer and then later bitched him out in the press for acting like an unknown 19 year old drummer, needing coaching, and having “the twitch?”

This *is* basically what Billy did, didn't he.

What a crud.

Mike seems like a nice guy. Of course he was bullied by Corgan. Funny that someone who treats people so badly on a routine basis is still deified by delusional obsessive fans. If Mike was discarded for not being good enough, Jeff should have been too.

One could argue that of the two, at least Mike has actually appeared on a Smashing Pumpkins album.

In June, Billy Corgan announced the departure of drummer Mike Byrne from the Smashing Pumpkins. At the time, Corgan implied that Byrne, who was 19 years old when he joined the Pumpkins in 2010, required too much “hand-holding,” and Corgan opted instead to work with seasoned drummer Tommy Lee for the recording of the band’s next studio album.

In a new blog on the Smashing Pumpkins’ Nexus website, Corgan expanded on Byrne’s split from the band. The long-winded post is quintessential Corgan, a diatribe of adjectives and proverbs incoherently strung together. But as best I can tell, Corgan says Byrne found his ideas boring and stifled the recording of the Pumpkins’ second of two new albums, Day For Night. He also implies that Byrne is indicative of an entire generation of people who are “twitch” with ADD. He writes,

"Mike Byrne has taught me a lot about his generation. And watching the twitch up close, the ADD of it all, I’m starting to understand what he found boring about The Mighty SP. He wasn’t wrong. But he also wasn’t right, too.

Because the way to replace something is to best it, not join it’s shallow-pool ranks. And great musicians like MB are capable; if they are willing to stop looking into the shiny sun and wonder, quite rightly, what lies on the dark side of the moon.

Imagine this: was the deco world of the 30’s any less bright to that generation? Great art movements came, but also too the set-up for world war. How so?

Light meets shadow. See? Or shadow meets light.

And where there is glittering, yet false *illumination, we (the collective We) must destroy it by being more real, more true, more-more. It works every time IF you can pass the muster of your own oblivion; or yawn. Mix that with kinetic, electric, hyperbolic punk rock I-don’t give-a-fuck-how-you-do-it and maybe, just maybe, someone wakes the fuck up from that coma they’re in.

Repeat, generation. Repeat."

Read the full blog posting here.

Of course, Corgan was able to successfully complete the first of the Pumpkins’ new albums, Monuments to an Elegy, which will see release on December 9th. He’s already previewed the album with “Being Beige”, and today, he shared another track in the form of “One and All”. Listen below.

Leave it to Billy to hire a 19 year old who works at McDonalds and then complain that he’s not Tommy Lee.

That's pretty unfair, Jeff is a really good musician. He has a production credit on Monuments, so I imagine his input was pretty substantial.

If you think Billy let's anyone have "substantial input" on his albums you're dreaming.
