    [quote:6f13058d0e]The SMASHING PUMPKINS' guitarist, singer, songwriter and founding member Billy Corgan has announced that drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has left the group. Chamberlin joined the band Corgan founded in Chicago in 1988 and played on all their albums except Adore (1998). Corgan will continue to write and record as SMASHING PUMPKINS with plans to head into the studio this spring.[/quote:6f13058d0e]

    My money says it's because Corgan was being a tit. Chamberlin can't be replaced, no-one else can stick Corgan for prolonged periods of time. New album coming?... lets listen back to the two solo albums and see which one sucked, shall we?

    It didnt feel the same without james iha during zeitgeist, but with the fact that corgan wrote most of the music anyway and chamberlin's signature style was still present meant it still kinda sounded like sp. This won't be the case at all now... wish corgan wouldn't continue to damage their reputation.
