Woah... I had no idea I thought they were gone for good? It's Billy's head still shaved? I will miss Wendy's brother not being in the band anymore [RIP] <sigh>

I never met any of the pumpkins, but I got a setlist once...

Beautiful. Just beautiful. Couldn't expect any more from the Darlings of Chicago.

Is James Iha in the line-up again or not? Guess if he is, that it will even further rule out the A Perfect Circle reunion I secretly hope for :unsure: There's rumours that the Pumpkins would headline Glastonbury this year, and I believe they've also been spoken of at Download Festival ; neither of both are confirmed so far though but it looks like they'll definitely do at least 1 major UK festival this year.

Must mean he is still touring with Vanessa And The O's?

positive note, but I fear the APC reunion won't happen anyway as long as Maynard is with Tool...

Is Melissa Auf Der Mauer with the Pumpkins now again or not?

No, she's not. They got a new bass player called Ginger. She's sexy. :D
Corgan's main voyeur might be female bass players.

Who can blame the guy? :D He needs to get Paz Lenchantin, she's very sexy and a great bassist. Also, Berit Fridahl is a good guitar and bass player though maybe lesser known.

Zeitgeist has gotten excellent reviews on several sites so far. A Dutch review site which I check regularly even wrote the album was close to perfection and that "we had to really dig into details to be able to write anything bad". They said the album is about perfection and named it one of the greatest comeback albums ever.

I get curious I must say. Never was that much into the Pumpkins (Machina was not really my style and turned me off a bit) but lately I rediscovered some older stuff and the new album is beginning to really interest me.

Well CP, Zeitgeist IS an awesome album, try to get it (leaks are all over the internet for free) and you'll see. Anyway, if you really want to get into the pumpkins, you should get Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, an album with such a title gotta be good and it's certainly a classic of the 90s.

Well, I would be pleased to send you some of what I consider their best stuff or any song you want.
