what does this mean for your place in the fandom and what does this mean for SPfreaks and the message boards/ online community?

I’ve been in the communities every time something big like this happened. The first time Jimmy left, the break up of the band. There will always be a community. The band may throw us through a hundred loops, but we’re all friends and we’re not going to split just because what brought us together has a few hiccups. :wink:

I don’t know. I feel…numb.

Roger that. And work on the online SP collection is never over also, so I will be around too. Besides, Billy Corgan will still record music under the name Smashing Pumpkins I presume.

Huh. That sucks.

Pretty hard actually.

Does it even count as the Smashing Pumpkins anymore? I mean, BC/JC WERE the spine of the band. When Jimmy ‘quit’ last time (Adore) there was still D’Arcy and James to keep it as SP, and back with Zeitgeist you had the BC/JC team, it was still Pumpkins then.

But now? Fuck this sucks.

And also: No more albums, SP are now a ‘singles’ band, selling Today for a VISA add for fucks sake…

I’ve pretty much lost faith in the modern SP. It just isn’t SP anymore.

*edit* posted to the wrong topic, apparently. Saw this one, and thus the shitty news, before the other post. OH WELL.

So apparently I don't post very often these days

i agree with that ^^ and although this still sucks major fucking ass i still love the SP and their solo stuff. plus i love talking to you guys, so i will still be here. this news did kill my day and i will still need a little time before i accept the reality. i’m getting there i guess though- no choice really. :roll:

i don’t know if i consider this to be the SP though anymore. i will count it as Billy solo though? i don’t know what i think about that yet. :|

I just can’t see how he can’t drop the SP trademark (perhaps it’s worth to many $1000000?) and just settle for a new one. Zwan were awesome in every aspect. In the long-torm this will severely damage the trademark as it already has. This is a very sad \"ending\" to it all… You just have to let good things rest and not dig up the rotten corpses… I think Jimmy is going to do a kickass project now that he is finally \"free\", as he did with his solo work! :) ………… :cry:

Yeah, the JCC is way too underrated :wink:

I really don’t know what Billy has in mind other than he is constantly making things hard on himself.

One day all the things he says makes perfect sense. The next day it don’t. It’s just impossible… :?

He should drop this. I refuse to listen to Billy solo and see it as SP. It’s not. It’s over.

Of course I will follow everything Billy decides to do, but I won’t call it Smashing Pumpkins.

Whoa. This was so unexpected. =l

All of your reactions are making me wonder what you’d have been like if they announced SP was splitting up completely.

Billy can do it, I have confidence in him! Why couldn’t he? He created the name SP..now the live band is different, the lyrics and music that’s Billy except the drums that’s Jimmy, but didn’t Billy supposedly play the drums on I Am One, or was it a different Gish song? Or was that a Pumpkin joke?
I have no worries…
Keep em coming SP ;)

Looks like Billy is becoming Axl II… Only original member left, struggling to survive with the band… pissed off at everyone? :?
