I've never really understood the love for James and D'Arcy or why they're important to the band. They both loathed Corgan, just barely competent in their prime, contributed nothing to the success of the band and looked checked out mentally most of the time. Everyone talks shit about Billy's ego / control freak nature, but how about James' passive aggressiveness? That would last about five seconds around me.

This is ban worthy. James was important to the band musically, he generated riffs for songs like I Am One, Soma, Mayonaise. I mean c'mon, what would the SP catalog be like without those songs? And we know, and it has been said by Corgan himself, that D'arcy was the barometer for "cool" in the band, she was the shit detector, and the one person who would stand up to Billy and call him on his bullshit. Something a guy like him -really- fkn needs. And aesthetically both were very important to the band image wise. D'arcy and James were gorgeous and looked like models, they were hugely important to the marketability of the band in the 90's. Lots of young girls identified with D'arcy and she was an influence and inspiration to many girls in the 90's both fashion wise and musically.

Unhappy

Unfortunately it looks like Billy still hasn't crossed the threshold that would earn him any delegates; this is Jimmy's race to win, though the other two aren't coming away empty-handed

Now I'm wondering what the spread would have been if we'd had an independent entrant, "The Gish Strat," in contention

Tough call between Billy and James "Bedroom Eyes" Iha.

Since we're talking classic era, I'm going with Billy because I love the songwriting.

He's also the only one who could occasionally get through a sentence without stammering

Notice how everyone whose voted for b0llzebub is on Team Machine. I also know for a fact that each and every one of them owns a signed copy of Blinking with Fists.

Coincidence?
