I love how these photos, and even their stage arrangement clearly suggest Jeff's marginalization, even as Billy claims he is not being elbowed into the back -ghosts-

compare that to this:

Just announced yesterday, on 9/22 show, Michio Kurihara join in Boris as a special guest. I'm really happy to play together again. He plays a few songs, but it is the first time in 6 years that I stand on stage together, I'm feeling a bit nervous or exciting, I am really looking forward to it. While listening to the memorable first collaboration work "Rainbow" with Mr. Kurihara, I feel more awkward. Let's enjoy together on 9/22! T ・

They were, at the very least, good and loyal employees, and Fiorentino was probably the best bassist the band's ever had as a regular member.

Like, imagine being fired for practically no reason other than the frontman taking out his frustrations of not achieving the success he wants on those around him ("discarding his friends to change the scenery," I suppose), only to see the band going on a big, bombastic, well-reviewe tour without you. Maybe I'm overly sentimental, but I feel like these guys deserve a medal for dealing with Corgan so long, while also being shit on my fans for not being the members who were around when the band was good, even though the band being bad was Corgan's fault, and not theirs.
Dude the Fiorentino/Byrne lineup sucked-ass. Let's not try and romanticize it now. I'm happy Billy is pretending like it never happened




I forgot for a moment how ham-fisted Byrne was. Bam-bam!

Sorry DK, but Byrne definitely played a major role in the band sucking and Nicole was about as generic as it got.

Jeff reminds me of Kevin Arnold in The Wonder Years with the way he's just staring into space.

I didn't know it then, but soon the band would implode with shit album sales, and I never saw Winnie again

Jeff trying to be a black-leather cool guy will never work & I like how Billy looks like Augustus has drawn a pair of spectacles on his face.

Whoever said Power Ranger villains nailed it

This ain't nearly as off-putting as the shit they(/he) were doing 10 yrs ago, it's just the right amount of Pumpkins pretention/artsiness/etc, imo

I don't mind the aesthetic of the photo, but so far, the music hasn't been heavy or dark enough to merit the whole "aging spooky rock stars" look.

I mean, how can you not laugh at this. How can you take this seriously. I think that's sort of the point. He has the weird self awareness now that he has a kid or something.
