QuoteThat was surprisingly interesting and not cringeworthy. I was expecting him to talk about what a pain it was to work with Billy.
Interesting about Kurt not wanting to do things more than a couple of times, and Billy wanting to do things over and over.
I think it's a sign that there are pros and cons to both methods. Nevermind and Siamese Dream are both era defining albums.

Quotewell, i suppose if a differing opinion annoys you then yes. all i'm trying to do is express my thoughts on the actual topic and support SP's guitarist that i happen to like more than the former guitarist. but if i am annoying for that, then how are you not annoying for taking up for james? whatever dude if i annoy you then just don't read my posts.
I do not think anyone here has any problem with differing opinions here. If you do, correct me if I'm wrong. My problems come from trolls who make degrading statements: things like James Iha "looks like a lady" and speculation about alternate realities where James was not in Smashing Pumpkins. Facts are, James started the band with Billy and was as responsible for getting the band off the ground as Billy. I'm sure Billy would agree. James was in Smashing Pumpkins for 12 years. Many feel that the band has not recovered from his departure from the band, and almost every Pumpkins fan would admit that even if the new band is not "worse," it is very different without James. He deserves respect. I feel talking critically about his guitar playing is one thing, but poking fun at him childishly and denying him his credit in a band he helped start is another thing.
09 June 2013 - 09:30 AMIn all fairness, I have no problem on Mike's performance on Oceania, but I think "Quasar" is beyond redemption whoever is playing on it. People consistently point to "Widow Wake My Mind" and "Astral Planes" as the worst, but I think this outranks either of them in terms of boredom.

QuoteTheoretically speaking, yes. There is no true way to tell. All we really have to by are the lyrics and the fact that this was recorded/finished up after she left.
I always thought this was one was tracked/recorded fairy early on in the process, and was one of the few with the original four playing.

QuoteIf he would slow down and not hit as hard or play as energetic I think I would mind him a decent amount less.
He really hits way too hard. And not in a Dave Grohl way either. This is SP, it's supposed to be dynamic.
I guess when I say stamina, I don't mean necessarily in the dynamics of his playing (I do not know a ton about drums, but I know enough to be able to tell it's the way he pound the hell out of those drums that makes them sound so sloppy). I simply meant, love him or hate him, a lot of 22 year old drummers would probably lack the endurance or memory to play a full Smashing Pumpkins set.
Quoteno option to vote for Ron Roesing?
Or this guy...
