Message from Jimmy [Mar. 24th, 2008|01:12 pm]
Billy Corgan
Hello music lovers.

As the tour winds down I would just like to say what a pleasure and an honor it was to play for so many of you. I try to never forget that my job is a sacred privilege. Music, the thing that binds you to me and all of us to the Universe is my light.

Let me also say that this band, The Smashing Pumpkins, will continue to write, record, release, and perform AS LONG AS WE ARE ABLE!

Some of you may have read bits of an interview that was done in confidence by yours truly in which I say that the Pumpkins probably won't record cd's anymore. What I meant by this is this: Although we may not use the "album" or "full length cd" as a format anymore, WE WILL WRITE AND RECORD MUSIC UNTIL WE ARE DEAD!!!!!!!! WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY!!!!!!!!

I could go on about how I was stolen from, violated, lied to by some ignoble journalist, but what's the point?

I choose light.

Love Jimmy.

It's really reassuring to hear that said with such passion. I look forward to everything that is yet to be written!

doesn't really do people who can't get music online any good if you don't make cds anymore.

Jimmmy.... come to the Dark Side.

We have cake.

And doobies.

And you get to yell at stupid reporters.

In the end we all wind up in the same Heaven, only people from the
Dark Side are less stressed.

Join us.

Release your anger.

I can feel the power within you.

The Doobage is strong with this one.

I was at the Christchurch gig - fuckin' awesome. My Blue Heaven was probably the highlight for me, weirdly - I just didn't expect to hear it live. And to follow that with Everlasting Gaze...tasty.

The death of the album format, for the Pumpkins, is sad though.

No more openers and closers. No journey through a batch of songs.

Instead it'll be just a handful of tunes every now and then..
