Corgan Hosts Drumming With The Stars


Smashing Pumpkins
seeks new drummer. Is this your shot at fame?



By Nancy Dunham



Did you hear the news that drummer Robert “Fish” Fishman was
kicked out of Vesuvius and now…



Oops, sorry. We’re not talking about the movie “The Rocker.”
I was confused for a minute because real life rockers Smashing Pumpkins and its
one-time ultra-loyal drummer Jimmy Chamberlin are sort of on an adjacent road.



Those of us who love the Electric Prunes psych/rock songs –
– especially “I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night” – can’t understand
Chamberlin’s angst over Billy Corgan’s collaborations with Prunes bass player
Mark Tulin. But hey, ya gotta do what you gotta do and for Chamberlin that
meant giving Corgan the “I’m just not that into you” line.

Ok, now this is where you come in.



The Pumpkins’ PR folks tell us that on Friday, April 10, the
Pumpkins will hold auditions for a new drummer. All you need is a dollar and a
dream – plus a way to get to LA. First, though send your background info (we
have no idea what that means but do the best you can), photos and performance
Web links by email to



And, hey, if you do the audition, drop us a line and let us
know what it was like. We wanna help make you a star!
