I just find it funny that someone as "indie" and "hip" as Matt Sweeney would record guitar tracks for as big of a main stream artist act as Neil Diamond and Rick Rubin. Maybe desperate wasn't the right word. I just needed a title to draw you people in =)
neil diamond is more hip than billy corgan in 2008

Um, you do know billy was in the smashing pumpkins right? You know, probably the best band on the fucking planet at one point. Neil Diamond is nowhere near what he once was. Still, corgan has, and always will be, fucking mainstream.

Now shut the fuck up.

Yet, he has sold more records in the past two weeks as Billy Corgan has sold in the past four years. Gotcha.

People who weren't conceived or even thought of when America was written actually give a fuck about Neil Diamound at this moment. As sad as it may be, the same can't be said about Billy... who?

If he could have kept relations with one of the best guitarists in the modern music scene, maybe we'd get something half as good as Home Before Dark.. Instead, we got Zeitgiest and American Gothic.


It's hilarious that someone could / will argue this point.

We're talking bill corgan's post pumpkins band, which got hyped a ton. Yet, you're trying to tell me matt sweeney is desperate because he's working with neil diamond now? That makes no fucking sense. I don't care about fucking record sales, this isn't what this is about.

Speaking of ex-Zwan members....Paz says:

Not really new-thread-worthy, so.
