BILLY CORGAN IS GOING NUTS
In a move that would be way cooler if Slayer hadn’t already done it last year with the 6/6/06 release of last year’s Christ Illusion record, the Smashing Pumpkins (aka Billy Corgan) have announced plans to release their comeback album Zeitgeist at 7:07am on July 7th (7/7) of the year 2007. It’s still unclear whether original guitarist James Iha or bassist D’Arcy Wretzky will be involved, though at this point I think it’s safe to assume that neither will be in the picture. The “reunited” Pumpkins (drummer Jimmy Chamberlain is the only other original member) will make their live debut on May 22 at the Grand Rex in Paris, France.
Nice try Billy. There will undoubtedly be a swarm of media frenzy around this event and it will most likely underwhelm. Sorry.
