So, bring them in, guys! What you always wanted to know about the Pumpkins (but were afraid to ask)!

Is there a restriction on the type of questions to be asked? Are personal questions allowed?

Hmm.Kinda hard finding some good questions.Ask Billy if he ever thought about writting a autobiography or got any plans for that.I think that would be cool reading about his life and all the good/bad things his been through with the band and outside the band

will we ever hear Jimmy sing??
(so many questions-i could do this all day)
Will you ever do smaller venues than you have been doing lately?
Will you write a song for me? (joke)
Do you ever get frustrated while writing songs?
What do you dream of?

Questions, Questions, Questions:
1) Will there be any plan for a world tour in 2009 and onwards?
2) Is there any plan of getting Darcy & James Iha to perform together with the band in the tour?
3) Would SP ever consider to work together with SPfreaks.com and other websites for news updates related to the band?
4) Has SP ever plan to release a blues or pop single/album in SP way?

Are you guys done having other bands open for you shows?

I have a few questions also.
1. To Billy: thinking of Smashing Pumpkins Mark I (1987 – 2000), there was a lot of anger, sadness and love in the music and texts. Thinking of Smashing Pumpkins Mark II (2005 – never to go away) there is a lot more love & appreciation shining through… Has the anger part left, if so, what happened that makes you more happy lately?
2. To Jimmy: not many Jazz drummers make a move to an American Gothic band. Alternative rock with intelligent texts is not always their thingy. What makes Jimmy the perfect drummer for the Smashing Pumpkins, and why isn’t he groovin’ around in the Jazz scene instead?

to clear things up-
we @ SPMM will be sending out a small number of questions to the guys in the band.
we will pick the questions and would love and appreciate all input.
all in all in the final projected article which will be a collaborative SPMM-item (so not solely mine, mind you) it might turn out several, it might turn out none of our/your questions will / can be featured.
or answered, so please bear with me in that process – thnx.
the main focus is on the mayhem of news and releases and tour info and all – the current status so to speak – so keep that in mind – what do you wanna know most NOW at this moment in time about TSP NOW?
think – current affairs vs lack of info or curious as to band input / statement – somwhere along those lines…
hope this clear things up a little bit-
i was very very busy when i asked arthur to post this here…
so might have left out a few bits and pieces – but the above is what i’m looking for: like a long list from you guys from which i will then pick the best ones to propose to the team and then the team will pick the best ones to forward to BC and JC.
thnx a lot.
you rock – awesome, thnx!

And… uh. Can’t think of anymore questions.

ok, here is mine
how did you come up with the diffrent themes for the anv tour?
is it \"funner\" (for lack of a better word) to have themes like these, and two night shows that include them, rather than just \"hey we’re here and this is what we are playing\" ?

I think this question is great because i read all the "confessions" he wrote at his livejournal, and i really enjoyed reading them… It was a great way to know more things about him, the band and is thoughts about general things in life… so i would question him the same thing

You’ve said that you and Jimmy have another 7 years in you, and that Superchrist was a good example that you could still rock. What happens after 7 years? If you cannot rock, then what? In what capacity do you see yourself involved with music in 10 years?
You’ve stated in the past that John Lennon was the one person you thought was going to make rock and roll sexy as he matured past the Beatles. Do you see yourself as someone who can make this happen in his absence?
Has sobriety helped or hindered your innovative drumming?
After the Jimmy Chamberlain Complex, who else would you like to work with? What would you like to be doing musically in 10 years?

1)Are Jeff,Ginger and Lisa going to be part of the ‘studio’ Pumpkins,or are they just part of the live show?
2)Do you think that you would ever share the stage again with the former members of the band(James&D’arcy).Or is the distance between both parties too great to even contemplate?(even for a one-off).
3)Why wasn’t ‘Zeitgeist’ released on vinyl and is there any intention for it to happen?
(I’ve always had the idea of a 5×7” boxset,blue in colour and each vinyl sleeve would be 1 of the 5 cd colours and have 4 tracks.The 5th record would have more bonus tracks).
4)Would i be entitled to royalties as i felt the need to copyright the idea above?Hahahaha
