I still remember when Billy Corgan said that he broke up his band because there was too much competiton against boy bands and pop tarts.

He may hve a tough job pulling this off. Though he still collaborates with Jimmy Chamberlain, I do not think that Billy is on good terms with James Iha and D'arcy Wretzky (he blamed James for the Pumpkins break-up and called D'arcy a 'mean spirited drug addict').

Still, if he can pull this off it would be great - I'd far rather he do this thaen turn out more tedious 80's fixated solo albums.

"I still remember when Billy Corgan said that he broke up his band because there was too much competiton against boy bands and pop tarts."

LOL, though he later said that he was joking.

Boy...he must hate the reception to his solo record. He SWORE he hated working with the Pumpkins and he has been bashing them in a blog he has that's been getting tons of press on myspace.com.

Changes his mind quickly doesn't he. That's cuz his solo record has been getting Terrible reviews!
