Want To Be In The Smashing Pumpkins??

| Filed under: Music Minute

Looks like Billy Corgan is ready to re-start The Smashing Pumpkins with an entirely new line-up, and is holding open auditions to find a new bassist and keyboard player!!

Ginger Pooley, the band's bassist, quit last week to focus on her family, and since Corgan was successful in finding a new drummer last year through an audition process, he's ready to try it again!!

Corgan says:

"Although I am heartbroken that Ginger is leaving the group, I really respect her decision to put her family first. I appreciate everything that she has contributed to The Smashing Pumpkins, and I'm proud of her for being such a great musician and friend. We were lucky enough to find drummer Mike Byrne through an open audition process, so why not open the doors again to anyone who might be interested for the bass or keyboard position. As you can see from our past and present, age, race, or a person's background is not an issue. Everyone is truly welcome to audition.”

If you think you have what it takes to be in The Smashing Pumpkins, you can send background information, photos, and performance web links to PumpkinsBass@gmail.com or PumpkinsKeys@gmail.com!!

    I loved the original band. I've been over them for the past decade and a half.



  3. 3

    I wish i could play tha bass or keyboards….



  4. 4

    Aren't you auditioning, Perez?? I mean now that you've written a hit song and all??? No? Why? Because to join the Pumpkins you'd actually have to be able to hold your own musically/know what the hell you were doing instead of just leeching yourself onto one studio session and then posing for the picture?



  5. 5

    Like totally ewww…..Who would want to sing with him, he is like totally 90 years old.



  6. 6

    Does that shitty, overrated fuck Billy Corgan want someone to join his shitty, overrated band?

    No thanks. I've got better things to do, like stabbing myself in the eye.



  7. 7

    Next stop, state/county fairs. Corgan is desperatly clinging to something that only worked with James Iha, Darcy and Jimmy!



  8. 8

    Billy Asshole Corgan, you are nothing without james, darcy and jimmy. I won't listen to any of your shit. SP died after Mellon Collie for me.
