Default Questions for today

Hi there!

as you might have read there's another thread here about the small secret concert in Berlin today and we get the chance to ask questions. Been thinking all day what to ask if I get a chance but I thought I'd just open a topic here to ask if there are any other serious questions people on the board would like us (the ppl who go there) to ask.

I was thinking about:

politely asking if Jeff and Ginger are bandmembers or touring musicians maybe or if there's a reason for not playing Gish songs but those are not the best questions imho.

So if anyone of you has any suggestions, I or maybe someone else from the board who's going today might ask them and give you the answers.

Ask him why he so publicly blamed james for the break-up, but has made no public efforts to get james back, or even simply stated that he asked him.

Do it.

ask him why he suddenly stopped writing those confessions, even though he announced in several interviews that the best had yet to come.

Ask him about the Metro DVD, and be the first one with the balls to do it

I would've asked him the times I've spoken with him, but he was all post-SP etc, so I didn't touch it, but this is SP business and it counts as new business.

Jimmy told me Christmas 2005 in spring of that year. WTF
I'm as tired of this as everyone else. ASK BILLY

It's not. Billy said a fortune teller talked up 2007, plus it was 13 years from '94. End of story.

Well it's doesn't really say too much only:

love, peace, empathy, desire, mischief, and gladness

Question

Ask him how he thinks the new album compares to Machina ? Has he approached the songs differently on this album ? What has he learnt in terms of song-writing from his solo album and has he taken any of it into the new Pumpkins ?

You should ask him how he met Uli Roth and whether he would be prepared to tour with the band just for Gossamer! Seriously, ask about Uli and their relationship, I'm sure there's a really interesting anecdote behind it.

Billy + Jimmy MUST be prepared for difficult questions re James + D'Arcy, it would be incredibly naive for them not to be. They might even bring the topic up themselves to try and clear some long-standing issues up.

Serious question: are Jeff and Ginger permanent bandmembers or just touring bandmembers?

"answers" i remember (but i might be wrong. never trust my memory.):
- why is it that i always get this question from men? must be something homo-erotic.
- do you understand the meaning of the words "fuck off"?
