    Guess this isn’t very surprising, since this Tommy Lee character is playing drums on the new album(s) (don’t remember the titles right now). But still, WTF??!!??

    Well… Billy hadn’t mentioned him (or Nicole) since recording the new albums – and they had unfollowed on twitter quite a while ago. Nicole is still using the SP name in promoting her band, so maybe will be touring bass player…? I wonder who will be touring drummer – I hope not Tommy Lee. :?

    This kinda bothers me. With all the personnel changes, Billy doesn’t make it very easy for us to be TSP-fans. Also, I find it annoying that he’s writing numerous unreadable album updates, but keeps everybody in the dark about the things that really matter. It took me a while to get used to, but I really liked this incarnation!

    You have to think of ‘Smashing Pumpkins’ as ‘Billy and co’ – since 2007 – although Jeff has stuck around for 7 years now. There must have been some reason for no official announcement, perhaps they (Mike & Nicole) wanted to pursue their own musical projects and see where they went before deciding if they wanted to return to SP or not.
    At least there was a video update yesterday! :) a basic riff doesn’t tell much but it does sound like Billy’s going back to a classic rock sound 8)
