Not even a year ago Billy tweeted this >>>

"Billy Corgan ‏@Billy
The most wonderful drummer in the world"




It reminds me of this Zwan interview [at 2:10] >>>

Which is a shame, because I do think that Nicole's playing actually brings something extra to the band, and i think she was gelling really well musically with Billy and Jeff - I only wish I could have heard that lineup with a better drummer.

On the Oceania cruise Billy stood up in front of everyone and made a statement about this being the best band he'd ever been in... Blah blah blah

Wasn't the first Bearcubbin tour the first thing Billy was pissed off about?

...on the side note...

I do have a feeling that Mickey was dumped in order to empty the place for Jim, but something seems to have gone down the drain and Tommy was hired as session drummer.

it would be nice to hear the truth, cause everything we ever get is speculation.

Tommy most probably won't be touring so if Jim was willing, and some commitments didn't allow him to join Bill nonow, he might tour later on.

Fact is Bill and Jeff spoke about Jim frequently in a positive way, so I assume this was Jimmy's call now.

Absolutely.

It sounds like he's choking trying to sing the old stuff.

Mike got fired and Nicole probably said "if he goes, I go!"

She was rubbing me the wrong way anyway. Selling her basses on eBay and attaching the bands name to it, over promoting her shit band to the sp fan base, etc etc. I can see why she might have been kicked out.

August 21, 2012

When I e-mail Chris Scott, guitarist and vocalist for Beaverton, Ore. band Bearcubbin’, about setting up an interview he’s enthusiastic. But his reply ends strangely: “If you wanted to talk to Mike, he won’t be back for (another week) but you can call then if desired.”

Now this is unusual. The Mike in question is Bearcubbin’ drummer Mike Byrne. And the reason Byrne isn’t available for another week is because he’s over in Asia touring with his other band: The Smashing Pumpkins.

Scott and Byrne formed Bearcubbin’ in 2009 and have been the band’s two constant members ever since. Bearcubbin’ began with a melodic math rock sound in the vein of Maps and Atlases but, over time, morphed into something much heavier and more angular. The group’s latest release, the aptly named Get Your Heavies Out, makes no effort to hide the fact that Bearcubbin’ is informed by bands like These Arms Are Snakes.

Bearcubbin’ is a band centered on its instrumental sound: compositions are driven by Scott’s frenetic and jagged guitar riffs. Songs bob and weave endlessly due to frequent and abrupt changes in tempo — but it works flawlessly, thanks to Byrne’s deft stick work.

It’s a sound the pair has perfected in the gaps between Byrne’s work with the Pumpkins. But Scott says that’s something he’s used to by now: A mere four months after the Bearcubbin’ formed, the then 19-year-old Byrne was selected by Corgan to be The Smashing Pumpkins’ new drummer. Corgan dug a video Byrne submitted as part of a nationwide search to replace longtime drummer, Jimmy Chamberlin. Because Byrne is constantly being summoned away by Corgan, it’s very difficult to set up a Bearcubbin’ tour. In fact, the first Bearcubbin’ tour never materialized.

“The whole thing fell apart when Mike told me we had to cancel because Billy Corgan was like, ‘Oh, we have to be doing demos in Los Angeles during the time that you’re supposed to be on tour.’ And he told him super last minute in Portugal. So I had to cancel all the dates,” Scott says. “And the crappy thing is they didn’t even go to do demos. Mike was home during the time we were supposed to go on tour.”


For his part, Scott doesn’t begrudge Byrne’s dominance of the band’s schedule. Thankfully, Scott isn’t just wasting away when Byrne is traversing the globe with Corgan and company. He studies electrical engineering at the University of Portland and eventually plans to use what he’s learning to build amps and pedals.

For now, Scott is fine being “that guy in the band with The Smashing Pumpkins drummer.”

“I do my best not to trade on his name and be like, ‘Hey, he’s in The Smashing Pumpkins, so we deserve this.’ I do my best not to use his job as a way to launch this band,” Scott says, starting to laugh. “Because I really think that people who are into The Smashing Pumpkins would f---ing hate Bearcubbin’.”

Thanks, never read that.

Maybe it's just me but not sure why Mike would even make this an issue. Bearcubbin' IMHO is unlistenable and I'm sure Mike made more money in one SP gig than he'd make an entire Bearcubbin' tour. Not saying that he has to do it for the money; my point is that if Billy is basically his employer and supporting his livelihood, he should have the right to keep him from touring with other bands if he thinks at all it might cause issues with SP.

If Mike chose Bearcubbin' over SP, he deserves to be kicked out. (And I'm saying this as a big fan of Mike!)

Lol she would NEVER quit for mike. Nicole only cares about her career.
Also, lol if people start hating on her now. Been anticipating the 180 of fans especially those who tried to get close to her to be on the "in" group of SP.
