Two of the pumpkins (Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin) have announced the Smashing Pumpkins will be touring (5 week quick tour) in celebration of the band’s two decade career.
Smashing Pumpkins are one of the bands on my list I still have yet to see live. I almost saw them last year but missed out. Last year at the 2007 Virgin Mobile Festival they were once of the end of the festival bands performing. It was starting to rain that night and my friends and I thought it best to just hit the road and miss their performance. I may try and see them when they start their tour off in tropical Cleveland, Ohio….
I have always been a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins. Why in fact I was a fan when good ol’ Billy Corgan had hair!
Here is a video that is a classic:
and another….(I love this song…):
