In many ways, this is 2007 all over again. Granted, that was way worse. Remember how we didn't FULLY know who was going to be in the band until they played the first show of the reunion... in Paris? That was such a horrible mess. I mean, we all knew that it wasn't really gonna be the original four: but there was no statement, EVER. Even after the damn show... in Paris... there was no "yeah, i know, that would have been cool - but these two people are neat too!" press release.

Once again - a simple damned statement from him would have been SO much better. Now that the photos are leaked, all of the wind is let out of this thing commercially among casual folks.

James is just doing this as a favor to Billy. He is well aware that there is no traction for this project. he is aware that Billy can't sing and can't make a hit anymore. He's not a fool. He joined APC because unlike this project it's a chance to make some real money. APC are still in demand and still making hit songs.

I think Jeff just doesn't have any better options.

What if D'arcy was telling the truth on Facebook?
What if she really was hacked and the interview wasn't the real her?
What if these guys are trolling us due to the "interview" and D'arcy is in on it?

Probably not huh.

One can hope. Although, given his track record, probability suggests it isn't true.

Nah that photo shoot was the real deal.

Seems like they hadn’t quite figured out how to publicly deal with the Darcy thing and all of this just fucked it up. Teasing fans with vague studio posts at beginning of year didn’t help out either.

I think Billy is more mad about the leaked photos than the D'arcy situation. His precious reunion, carefully crafted, is tainted already. He's grumpy because he realizes this, like everything else in the past 11 years, will be a pale echo of what the band once was.

Billy (1998):

"I think that's probably one of the most misunderstood things about the Pumpkins is that it is the inner dynamic that we have that makes our music very poignant to us and people get very caught up in like 'I did this, they did that'. It's never been like that for us. It really is the chemistry between us.
The other day I was doing an interview and the guy asked me 'why is it important for James and D'Arcy to still be in the band?'. And I said 'well, every song that I've ever written that means anything to me, James and D'Arcy were in the room...so...whatever that chemistry is...whatever dynamic we have...it's a magical thing and at this point we don't even question it'.





Billy (2016):

"And speaking of those Iíve been fortunate enough to share the stage with, I see that itís Díarcy Wretzkyís birthday today: So a big and happy B-Day to her from here! Iím encouraged to hear that she is playing music once more, and writing songs. As Iíve often said, no one had better musical discernment in our band than she."

you talk about the intricate human relationships that played a huge part in the formation of the music we all know and love as if it's a pancake recipe
