Success is a relative term. The fact that Billy can still gather in about 2000-3000 people per market when he hasn't put out anything relevant in 20 years is still quite impressive, and is a direct result of their 90's run.

It was never going to be 199X again, but Chris never really vanished into the mists of irrelevancy the way BC & SP did.
Yeah, he had some pretty decent success with Audioslave.

Lmao. Why would they even try to pull something like this with Billy Corgan and his hired hands? I could see it being cool for a Motley Crue or Guns N Roses show or a band like that, but a bunch of "hot models" front row while Billy plays the Oceania clunkers?

Did anyone notice any hotties zoomed in on in the front row when they watched this thing?

Even in the 90s I don't think they were a 'hot models' type of band

I wonder if it was Billy or someone working on the filming that had that idea of looking for models. One for the ages.
If it was Billy then it might mean a)He knows is fans are mostly middle aged and thinks they look unappealing to the audience he really wants.
b) Hes a bigger creep than prev. known.

Do you think anyone who has ever worked for Billy has ever done something with running past Bobo the control freak.

nah, they weren't, to be honest: http://www.splra.org/wiki/index.php?title=Tsp2008

i guess the belgian venue was relatively small, compared to most of the other ones.
it probably didn't help that they had two euro tours less than a year before the 2008 gig.

I will hunt you down and force you to listen to The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked Vol. II for a fortnight on repeat until your ears bleed and your verminous soul subjects itself in groveling abjectitude.
