Also it's Billy's band he can promote whatever the fuck he wants from it. Nicole was handed a golden opportunity to play with SP and she exploits it to advance her own career.

I went to a Morrissey concert and the thing ended 3/4 in because of the stage invasions. Security was prepped and everything but we just kicked their asses.
I was up front and was going to take a leap for it but the security guy took a look at me (Im 6'4) and was like fuck, and called an extra couple dudes pretty much just to watch my side.

People did make it though and Moz hugged them and everything.
Pretty awesome that this 65 year old can inspire such rebellion from young people who probably get shit on in their lives and just take it.

That's correct. I guess Mike told her to delete it.

He's 55

His shows have often been that way. It wouldn't be a Moz show without at least a few people rushing the stage. I've seen him live a dozen times and a few of those I can't believe he put up with it.

Fakest of fake, which is why when Billy got rid of her he gushed about D'arcy.
you are incredibly fucking annoying

I can't release them because they are not addressed to me. If they were, I would have released them LONG AGO.

Are you crying cause you found out nicole isn't the humble sweet heart you think she is?

Imagine Tommy Lee joining the band at any other point in it's history. It's just ridiculous. But I'm at a point where he, in some twisted way, seems like a viable choice...

You can't replace Jimmy, but in a sense you can replace some of the individual facets of playing that define SP

I mean. The proof will be in who Billy gets for the next record - if he goes for another niche drumming style - I guess he either can't find one of the great "all rounders" who will accept the gig, or this is how he actually wants to move forward.

But If Tommy Lee is the new SP drummer who is going to go out and play the old shit - boy oh boy we're in trouble ~again~...

This. I'm just looking forward to Corgan trying something new. The music with Byrne just fell really fucking flat all of the time. I'm not even saying it's Byrnes fault necessarily but it was pretty clear the chemistry between Billy and he just wasn't there.

Tommy's not very technically proficient but he's got his own thing going on, maybe it will be cool? You gotta keep an open mind about it until the musics actually released. I had an open mind about Byrne when he joined too, but then the music just sucked.

I think most importantly this also signifies that theres going to be a new touring drummer which is a fantastic thing. The energy from the shows with Byrne took a huge nosedive after Jimmy left and they just didn't sound very tight... And the setlists were always the same. My hope is that Corgan hires a guy whos able to perform the Chamberlin material sufficiently this time around.

As for Billy giving Mike and Nicole the boot: I think their other bands probably played a big role in it. It just seems like something that would rub Corgan the wrong way. I mean here Corgan is doing all he can to integrate them into his world famous band and all the members can do is constantly try to get their own bands up and off the ground. You never saw that kind of motive from Jeff, and look at that: Jeffs still in the band lol.

They should have been thrilled to be in SP and just focused their musical ambitions on that. I mean heck, it should have been clear to Byrne at least that Billy didn't like the idea of him working on another band when he strong armed him into cancelling his tour. Yet Byrne couldn't take the hint and just continued on. Pretty stupid of him if you ask me.
