I only have to go back to the HMH Amsterdam gig of November 8, 2011 to know this band fucking rocks. It was without any doubt the best concert of Smashing Pumpkins I have seen in my whole life (and I have seen a few). And I’m looking forward to the Dutch July 2013 concerts I’m going to attend.

I don’t judge the band (or any band) by its’ commercial success, or its’ relevance in the current time frame. It might be nice for a discussion with a beer or two to talk about these subjects, but it’s not really interesting on the long run. For several reasons I’m very attached to this band, as I was to the ‘old’ band. Mainly I’m very glad Billy Corgan is around to entertain us with his art. And that’s about it, I guess. :)
