Remember in 2007 when Billy dressed like a leprechaun and opened shows with United States but at least you got Hummer somewhere in there. Good times.

The "we understand your enthusiasm" shirt would be great with the Disneyland photo.

I really enjoyed that interview. It confirms a lot, and she seems more stable than Billy and calls him out on a ton of his bullshit.

We need to organize and make sure there is a contingent of Netphorians in the front row of every reunion show with "as much as we love iha, he isn't slash" and "the answer is you deserve to be on a t shirt" shirts. I'm serious. I'll quit my job just to follow Billy across america and troll the shit out of his fat bald egomaniacal ass.

Does anyone have recommendations for a site that will print and ship a single shirt?

I know a person who might be able to, actually. He works at one of those companies that make t-shirts. Haven't spoken to him for a while, but I could get in touch with him. I'm sure he could make an exception.

Do you want one for real?

We have two or three t-shirt printing shops in our town, where you can easily come in with your USB-stick with the pictures you want to get printed.

I'm still interested in a Corgan picture with him wearing a carrot costume. Instead of D'arcy...

Quote:
In a new Billboard interview, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan described Jimmy Chamberlin’s reaction to D’arcy Wretzky’s feud with the band earlier this year.

Corgan feels Wretzky’s public comments, which began during February, “a betrayal” of their private discussions before then, and while the band has moved on he still feels some residual rancor.

Y’know, we couldn’t get her in a room,” Corgan says. “The other three original Smashing Pumpkins members have not been a room with her for 19 years. She hasn’t been on a stage in nearly 20 years. It’s a complex series of events and…was very frustrating. There’s nowhere to go with that. We finally said, ‘Let’s put our heads down and just play. Jimmy in particular said, ‘Look, the music will take care of the rest of the equation. Don’t respond. Don’t fight. Don’t get into the mud. Just march forward.’ That was sage advice, and that’s what we’ve done. And here we are — new record, very successful tour, dates being announced for next year. Marching on, in essence.”

I still don’t understand, why didn’t Billy, you, or somebody say if we’re going to do this reunion, say maybe we should all four talk together? Talk on the phone at least, or meet together, why was that idea never posed? It seems that having text message conversations about this muddied up a lot of water.

Well no, it really didn’t. I would have really loved to. At one point Billy said that Jimmy was going to come over to his house and write some stuff. I always said, ‘I’d really love to do that too.’ He would never invite me, but he told me that it didn’t happen. He said that I was invited to do all of this stuff, and that I said later, later, later. There was only one thing that was later, later, later, that I had invited him to come out to my farm. He never invited me to his house ever to meet his girlfriend or his son, nothing.

Question

“The other three original Smashing Pumpkins members have not been a room with her for 19 years."

Even JAMES shouldn't have seen D'arcy for 19 years? WTF...

In fairness, it would've been a LOT different had D'arcy even moonlighted with other bands over the 19 years...there was no evidence to suggest she could even play, never mind be match fit for 30 three-hour shows.

They got the reunion the wrong way around though. Billy wanted to do the tour and fit the band around that, rather than the other way around.

They should've met up first, see if they could still function together, and then have some informal jams, maybe work up a short set, then go do some club gigs / surprise sets in small venues. The public and press would've gone crazy for that. They could've recorded a few new songs too, to keep the interest levels up.

Following all that good will, they could've booked a big headlining tour and gone global. That would've been the best way to do it.

But they went BIG TOUR first, as they clearly needed the money.

I wish Jimmy or James would comment on this, rather than more comments from Billy on their reactions to it. To his credit, I mostly believe Billy here in terms of what Jimmy said because it sounds like a pretty level-headed reaction and Jimmy (heroin aside) has always come off like a pretty rational, hard-working guy who is really all about the music. But I still wish we’d hear from him or James occasionally rather than Billy doing his usual thing of spinning the narrative in his favor.
