I assume that Jimmy is clean nowadays? Didn't he almost die from an over dose?

I think this is the real deal. Billy bought a full-page ad in the New York Times or some other big paper asking for his band back, wanting to reunite the Pumpkins. I would have to guess that's what happened. I don't think it's a publicity stunt. It's on the Pumpkins' site.

Yeah, he's been doing good as far as I know. He even put out a solo album.

He's one of those few drummers that are so unique and can recognize his style immediately. Lots of it is subtle changes and "off beats".

I am a fan of his work.

Yeah, he trained as a jazz drummer. His timming is incredible. You're right, he has his own style. He's a beast.

I know that he is reviving the Pumpkins and I know it is official. However, we have no news that Iha or one of the two bassists is on board. There was actually a statement a few weeks ago (which I can't find) that said that Jimmy was all he needed. I hope Iha comes back but I wouldn't be surprised if he reunites the Pumpkins w/o him or Darcy/Melissa.

Sorry folks, buy Iha had alot to do with their magical sound. Corgan and Chamberlain will merely create a sad shell of their former greatness.

I agree. I strongly doubt if Corgan would call he and Chamberlin The Smashing Pumpkins without Iha. Although Corgan played guitar in the recordings, Iha definitely can't be replaced. If Corgan were to go on without Iha, I'd lose some respect for him. I just don't think he'd do that.

How about Squash, or The Gourds?

It will be interesting to see what happens. Personally, I'd prefer Melissa Auf der Maur over D'arcy. I may be in the minority on this, however.

Apparently Maynard said APC was dead, so that would free up Iha, if he were even inclined to work with Corgan again.

From what I heard Melissa auf der Maur is very interested in joining the new born Pumpkins.
