Last week Billy Corgan posted a pic of himself, Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha in the studio which comes after a ‘classic Smashing Pumpkins lineup reunion’ was announced. Noticeably absent from this picture in the studio however, which you can see here, is that bassist D’arcy Wretzky isn’t there. And now it turns out that despite making peace with Corgan, she will not be a part of the band’s upcoming reunion which is reportedly happening this summer.
The problem is, if you say it’s a ‘classic lineup reunion’ and you don’t have D’arcy, then it isn’t a reunion. It’s Zwan with a couple extra members, one of which happens to be an old member of Smashing Pumpkins. Read what D’arcy said about the situation here.
