Smashing Pumpkin's Drummer Talks Reunion Tour in 2018

posted by Ryan -

Smashing Pumpkins could see some action in 2018 according to their drummer, Jimmy Chamberlin. Jimmy recently talked with WGN Radio, and hinted at a possible reunion for all four original members! Although, when he was asked what's it been like trying to get the band together, "it's like Grumpy Old Men 3." But with all the b.s. aside, musically, the band is always on the same page. (Scroll down for the full interview, and Jimmy talks reunion around 27:30) So good chance we'll get some surprises from The Pumpkins in 2018. NOOICE!

Check out the whole interview from WGN Radio below. Frickin' solid! 

Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin joins Justin to talk about his great career in music, how he grew up playing jazz music, what he learned from jazz that is still with him today, auditioning for the Smashing Pumpkins, the transition the band was making from “Gish” to their major label debut, “Siamese Dream,” going from local darlings to being one of the biggest rock bands in the world, his well-documented battles with addiction, the relationship between rock and roll and drug addiction, the bond he shares with Billy Corgan, the current state of the music industry, the importance of discipline, hard work and practice, the challenge of returning to jazz music after years of playing with Smashing Pumpkins and how he is preparing for the next Smashing Pumpkins tour.
