even with people who accuse them of something without having any track record of drugs or mental illness.

Exactly, he's going to sell the same old story of D'arcy being unstable.

Maybe James, Jimmy, and D'arcy should do what RATM did and hire a new singer.

Ed Roland from Collective Soul? They could do a cover of Snail.

That doesn't come across any better.

Interviewer: Where's D'arcy?
Billy: She's out of her mind
Interviewer: Are you discriminating against a woman with a mental illness?
Billy: ...

nono, I meant what he already said today, on instagram "she lost her mind" - only phrased better. that would be an easy route for upcoming interviews.

"all of us became closer again over the past few years, and the possibility to really reunite wasn't that far fetched any more. we just wanted to take it slow to make D'arcy as comfortable as possible and prepare her for the step back into the show business again. Just as the tour plans were finalized, it sadly became obvious she couldn't handle the stress and pressure. she was not doing well. the last thing we wanted was to make things worse by dragging her into something she was not ready for. so we accepted what we cannot change."

you know. bla.

Good for Darcy. She might be crazy and she might have a drug problem and she might not be the best bassist but she didn't deserve this bullshit. Billy does. This is a great monkey wrench in that tea selling dipshit's schemes.

Watch how Billy reacts. He will hit hard and low. Probably try to have her commited to a mental institute. Fuck him. Oh and fuck Jimmy amd James for going along. I used to like them.

I believe Darcy! Like someone said, she should join netphoria.

hah, I'm sure that interviewers will have to sign contracts saying they won't even hint to that subject

Let’s talk about this insinuation that anyone talking to Darcy now isn’t a “fan.”

That's an even worse response. They were in touch for the last 2 years, James and Darcy were still talking for the last 19 years.

Do you really think they would only find out she was unstable only AFTER negotiation with her? How considerate of them, not even a text saying she wasn't part of the reunion.

official SP statement:
Quote:
In reuniting The Smashing Pumpkins, the band's dedication remains to its fans and its music. To that, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin, and William Corgan haven't played a show with D'arcy Wretzky for over 18 years. But it's not for a lack of trying. For despite reports, Ms. Wretzky has repeatedly been invited out to play with the group, participate in demo sessions, or at the very least, meet face-to-face, and in each and every instance she always deferred. We wish her all the best, and look forward to reconnecting with you all very soon.
she deferred. it's her fault. lol.
what an empty statement.

d'arcy, we're waiting for you to hit back to the bs rebuttal by SPcamp.

It's a good response if Billy wants to save his ass.

I gotta say I kinda believe the James/billy/jimmy side. Why else would James side with billy on this?

I’ve heard from a very reliable source, close to Darcy, that billy and James badly wanted her back. It was a back and forth for months, but her mental health isn’t sound and it ended up where it is now. So, they tried. This statement sounds to me that that particular story is the truth but the band is being very careful to not throw the complete truth of it out there.

Remember James and jimmy are both people that quit over how terrible billy can be. Why would they back him if he’s truly be terrible to her? Sounds more like a bad communication breakdown and Darcy is saving Face/letting out years of built up frustration.. which I’m sure she deserves to do that.

Beside an unofficial "Shes out of mind" quote...? I'm wondering why JAMES is doing this at all now.

Yeah there's a good chance that this is true. My only question is why did they wait so long to release this statement? It's an easy explanation and if they'd released it when D'Arcy first started talking it could've saved them a shit show.
