    Not a big fan or anything but thought some might find it interesting, especially Matt Till.

    I'm a big SP fan, so it would be interesting to have them back. Although, I doubt they would still be any good. The "split-up band getting back together" idea has crashed and burned too many times in the past.
  3. Hmmmmmmmmmmm , So this is the new trend, release a solo album , then reunite............

  5. i hope it works out, i love the old Smashing Pumpkins songs. hopfully they can work things out and come backwith somenews awesome songs.

    is it true that Corgan writes songs for Breaking Benjamins? how does that work?

    I doubt James Iha will come back. They had some bad static near the end there. I would love to see him with the Pumpkins again, because he was a great talent. But we'll see how this plays out.

    I guess being the "Cubs correspondent" for WXRT wasn't as fun as it looked on paper! :D

    God I hope not. I personally can't stand to hear Corgan's voice, that nasally whining shrill moaning or whatever he does. :spit:

    Oog :p

    This would be cool. SP was one of the bands I never got to see live that I wanted to.

    He has finaly realised that both Zwan (awful name, in Belgium it's the name of a tv-saucage) and his soloproject are not working out.
