Seems cool and humble (except umm is there much palm muting in cherub rock?)

Kiki if you’re reading this good luck, and you should never read Netphoria, it sucks

She seems to be able to do it all, her reels had her playing all sorts of stuff. Shredding, pop, bass. She's played drums for Taylor Swift even.

But I am a bit concerned that Jeff left because he was barely doing anything anymore, so what's Kiki going to do?

She will do what the Bald Lord tells her to do or she will be fired.

Basically what I expected. She will do fine live. But her commentary makes it sound like SPís style is alien to her. Says she has minimal knowledge of fx and is more of a rhythm player. That kind of stuff makes it seem like her social media following is really what tipped the scales. She seems personable though so she probably wasnít weirding them out which is important. If a guy plays great but is gonna fanboy, that would just be weird to be around in the band.

She comes across really well in this - very balanced, and her enthusiasm is lovely. I hope she has a good time playing with SP.

Paranoid play nice.

The fact that somebody this skilled at guitar decided to take more lessons makes me wonder what my sorry-ass excuse is for still sucking.

exactly, band should just have bil/iha on guitar. i don't know why i'm supposed to be interested in her or anything she does, i guess - if the band were currently amazing i'd be happy to approach it from an optimistic point, but since when has billy made a good decision?

what if her playing guitar turns out like paz joining zwan

There’s nothing humble about that clown. The “I’m not the best player in the world” is just a rhetorical thing ytubers say all the time to gain praise and seem approachable

Why Bill thought the caricature of a 80s guitar player with coloured contacts and a whole lot of dumb show was the way to go is a fucking mystery to me

Maybe she'll be doing the rhythm parts and James / Billy will be doing the leads / spacey stuff.

There are 100% a few cases of arrested development in this thread.

Jeff was doing lots, he was even doing some leads that were supposed to be done by Billy but he was focused on singing and b0lly dancing.

Jeff style is way more shoegaze, but Billy asked him to play heavy. I doubt Billy will ask Kiki not to be a heavy metal pastiche player.

Yep, it's so obvious that Jeff joined with the expectation of shoegaze when in fact Bill only wanted the music to chugga chugga

This here is why the Pumpkins should be good with just the two guitarists. The less playing done by Billy the more awkward he looks on stage and I don't give a fuck how many lessons he's taken, dude will never be an actual good singer.

All the above are prime reasons for the increased levels of suckage since 2007.

Corgan is half man, half guitar, like something from Greek myth.

I've seen them thrice with Jeff in the lineup and with the acknowledgement that he's probably a nice guy and I wish him all the best, I've never really considered him to be more than a hired hand who hung around an unusually long time.

That he was a Pumpkin for 16 years (a fair bit longer than the original band were together) doesn't mean a lot, as Billy was his employer and I can't think of anything he added to the (mostly) bad/mediocre music the band put out during his entire stint.

Farewell Jeff, I barely knew ya.

This lady, good luck on her for getting the gig and I hope it pays solidly. But she'll be filed away in a few years in the cabinet labelled Expendable Personnel with a host of others.

the article reads like i was written by SP camp PR team. it's all just too snug and swell. She even cites

he opens up on the interview and audition process, bonding with Billy Corgan over Dimebag Darrell, and why getting the guitarist spot was as joyful as giving birth
giving birth? really? is she really pushing the dad/mom agenda? eww. not very rock and roll. SP is now a family band. (look I'm not being misogynist, because the same criticism applies to the dads in the bands x10)

If i got the guitars job would i think holy shit this is when a human person shot out my whimwham! Thats interesting to me. In any event glad that she could find at least two of such events in her life. Meanwhile i have never been the guitarist for smashing pumpkins and will never give birth to anything but the chaos and misery left behind. But at least there’s still birds

It's pretty good to normalise having kids and being in a rock band. I mean some musicians clearly use their kids for marketing purposes however (could you for example name James' kids?)
