Hey guys, just an FYI, Jimmy updated his blog on Oct. 4th.

Dude, Jimmy has the fattest drum setup ever! He's got like four toms, snare, bass, a tambourine, a swish cymbal, a ride cymbal, a crash cymbal, a splash cymbal, a gzillion other unidentifiable cymbals, a cowbell, and a double hi-hat and that's just what I can clearly make out in the pictures. http://www.jimmychamberlin.com/studio/index.htm
But can anyone tell me what that blue cover thing is on the cowbell in the third picture on the top row? I'm curious.

hey people, did anyone hear about this chamberlin websitehttp://www.jimmychamberlin.com
makin an album too
what's with all our pumpkins friends going solo
Auf der Maur and Courtney Love....Chamberlin and of course the jerk
why does diminishing success and the passing of
a decade make these peoples egos grow so consistantly
or is this Solo move still better than forming new groups with
already established personalities cough Zwan cough Audioslave
and is anyone else craving anything from the 90s, simply for
the traces of grundge splattered across the genres at the time
which simply doesn't show up in...fucking......incubis....franz ferdinand
So i bought tickets to see Alanis in a couple weeks, just to hear
You Oughta Know from the same face that kept that Foo Fighters
drummer from convincing Davey to play Bad music instead of Good
or maybe just because Ironic was on the radio the same time as
el scorcho, the first time when weezer was Hardcore Nerd not a flagship
anyway incidentally i'll have a solo album coming out after August
so you should all look for that at my solo website and maybe when
you go to bed, say a little prayer and hope for the
new "Wretzky" single

what about billy blaming james iha for breaking up the band...

cross-posted times a thousand
heyy guys, my name's alix and i just joined... listen, i don't know if this would be of interest to you, but after many, many months of searching, i have managed to collect and compile the vast majority of the Spun soundtrack. only a few songs are missing (about seven or less), but those were simply unavailable outside of the actual movie. i am willing to distribute copies of this two-disc set to whoever wants it. i only ask that you pay shipping/handling, but otherwise the soundtrack is free. i'll also provide a tracklisting with the set. if anyone is interested, please email me your mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org, and i will respond with the s/h fee and where it should be sent. well, spread the word, guys.. keep the pumpkin/zwan pride alive!

BILLY CORGAN, former frontman with SMASHING PUMPKINS and ZWAN, has revealed details about his forthcoming solo album, which he describes as "loud and beautiful and poetic and dumb".
The guitarist disbanded Smashing Pumpkins in 2000 and formed Zwan a year later. In 2003 the band released their debut album, 'Mary Star Of The Sea' but split last September.
In a statement on his official website, billycorgan.com, Corgan said: "I am excited to work on this music, because for the first time in my life it will be my tunes with no compromises to anyone or anything. It's gonna be loud and beautiful and poetic and dumb. Just the way I like it."
"We started a few days ago (the 15th) to get it together for my first solo album," he added. "Some would argue that it's not my first, and I wouldn't argue with you there."
Corgan also hinted that, though the record with be a solo album, it may feature a couple of collaborations, saying: "I am starting over from such a fresh perspective that there is nothing to rely on but my good name. I am being honest when I say I am ready for that and love the challenge and relish the mustard."
He added: "So I come in with no songs but maybe one or 2, no lyrics, no band (but a few santa's helpers lined up) and no dairy."
Corgan is also set to release a book of his poetry at the end of this month.
As previously reported on NME.COM, he premiered some material from the forthcoming book at a multimedia performance in Chicago last September.
The singer was opening the Poetry Center of Chicago's 31st Annual Reading Series at the Art Institute of Chicago's Rubloff Auditorium.http://www.nme.com/news/107359.htm

So come on then you guys! What is your favourite Pumpkins song in terms of Jimmy's drumming?
|Saturday, January 10th, 2004|
"You see all those empty seats? That's not who we play for -- we play for you. I want you to remember, we won't forget you -- so don't you forget about us." - to diehard fans who stayed at a concert for "Silverfuck"
Don't worry, the pumpkins will never be forgotten.
Much love to Pumpkins.

Jimmy Chamberlin: yummy and Zeppelinesque
I was glad to find this community. The Pumpkins were the first band I was *really* into, enough that the music shook the earth I walked on.
I recommend anyone into their work to check out Led Zeppelin, if you haven't already. I didn't even really know who they were until maybe 3 years ago, when I finally really gave them a listen as more than "Stairway to Heaven guys" and wow, they were good. First and best kick-your-ass-with-our-music gods. Smashing Pumpkins and Zwan are frequently described as "Zeppelin-esque", and I've seen quotes from all of the members proclaiming Zeppelin as gods and saying how much they influenced Smashing Pumpkins. Billy Corgan hosted a little VH1 special about Led Zeppelin a while back.
Jimmy Chamberlin's drumming style is so delightfully unique. The drummer from Led Zeppelin, John Bonham, is the closest stylistically to Jimmy Chamberlin I've ever heard. I think that Jimmy is very underappreciated as a drummer. Dave Grohl is covered with John Bonham tattoos and says he'll cut off part of his body to drum for any Page/Plant/Jones reunion(!) He was great for Nirvana and very talented, but I think Jimmy Chamberlin sounds way more like John Bonham than Dave Grohl ever has. And Jimmy would add his own special touches, not just try to replicate Bonham's sound.( Jimmy Chamberlin Interview - Rhythm Magazine November 2000Collapse )
