Default SP without Billy Corgan

Imagine if SP reformed, minus Billy. How cool would that be!

A choice between,

-James, Darcy and some other guitarist playing Pumpkins music with Jimmy drumming... no bitching at the crowd about how the Pumpkins don't want their fans anymore, "thank you's" and "we love you's" during each show, and straight-forward interviews about what's going on with the band

or

-Billy Corgan refusing to play any songs we care about, the shittiest voice of his career, horrible new songs, a drummer who just got his driver's license and a nightly berating of the audience at every show


I'm not gonna lie... just the name "Billy Corgan" carries a lot of weight, but anyone who respects themselves would clearly steer more towards the first option

Someone needs to talk to James, Jimmy, D'arcy, Paz, Pajo and Sweeney (and anyone else he has alienated over the years) and see if they can all form a band, and call themselves the Smashing Zwans.

Then they could go around slagging Billy off saying he couldn't really play guitar and that it was and always has been similar to the Milli Vanilli stunt, that he never wrote any of the songs but always took credit for them, and that he was fired for being a drug addicted, immoral, destructive, heroin shooting, fan fucking, major dick who was trying to break up the band all the time. Seems more believable than his story of everyone else being to blame for his problems.

Definitely would not work! LOL! Billy is the heart and soul of the band. Interesting theory though.

Still can't understand the hatred against Billy. Yeah, he's a rock star and a highly creative and unique musician. I think he might have a larger ego with regards to music, but outside of music he's probably more down-to-earth than people think. I know he usually has time for fans and things like that. I'm not trying to be some sort of apologist or anything. Billy has never done anything bad living the life of a '90's rocker. Maybe his numerous dealings with Courtney Love (insert right-left-right-left head shake here) could be the worse thing he's ever done.

I will admit, that everytime I've looked for a Courtney head to photoshop (which I've done MANY by now), every single pic of her, her face looks different. It's really fucking annoying. Sometimes she looks like Death, othertimes I'd hit that...

She's like Jennifer Garner: sometimes she looks like Rocky Balboa, other times I'd let her snowball whatever she wants into my mouth.

So I assure, you, that IS Courtney Love's head.
