Great write up. It's a shame he doesn't bring the jazz to the Pumpkins.

I dream of Eddie Korosa (Jr.) joining the Smashing Pumpkins on stage as a guest star, to bring back some good old Polka Party vibe.
With Jimmy playing the longest Polka drum solo ever, the "Pumpkin Polka".
Giving him a notification in the Guiness Book of World Records.

Isn't it strange how Jim went from absolute drug addict and loose cannon to lofty, clean cut, city slicker overnight? I mean, that is not what junkies normally do.

I have this terrible feeling he may have actually sacrificed our beloved Jonny's soul to the daemon gods that night at Regency Hotel. To have the Curse and the Cross lifted from him.

By overnight you mean from 1988 to 2008? Yeah, that's amazing.

In Los Angeles, 90 minutes after the show ended, Jimmy emerged from the venue towards his waiting black SUV, like a man on a mission. The eight fans who were there waiting to meet him were pretty much out of luck. The ones who enthusiastically rushed him on the way to the car got a couple autographs, but he was gone in a flash.
That he couldn’t have budgeted a couple of minutes for the fans who came out was disappointing. I get that when it’s SP, there is no fan interaction anymore, and as a long time fan, it was a challenge to make peace with that, but I understand that dynamics change. Solo shows are a different beast though. Hearing about his accessibility at seemingly every other show sorta bums me out that we were all sorta just left holding our dicks.


Either way, it was nice seeing the Complex. Billy M. is arguably as talented on bass as Jimmy is on the drums. Those two together are incredible

Jimmy can only poop at home or alone in his hotel room, I wish you casuals would be more respectful of this

Well, his wife was there with him, so that likely made him feel even more comfortable and at home when he hit the hotel pot.

Yes, it's a rock record

Or Shiny 3

or a Christmas album?

Or maybe it's something with other people singing and playing piano (remember that??)

Confirmation of a Billy/Jimmy feud?

What did you expect him to do? To stop by and ask you about that drum kit in your basement?

He was knackered, he wanted to go back to the hotel and yet he was kind enough to sign autographs for those who asked.
