Pumpkinhead returns

Guess who attended the Sean Carter Memorial Publicity Stunt Academy?

A Message to Chicago from Billy Corgan (.pdf)

Operative graf from his full-page ad in today's Chicago Tribune:
"When I played the final Smashing Pumpkins show on the night of December 2,
2000, I walked off the Metro stage believing that I was forever leaving a piece
of my life behind. I naively tried to start a new band, but found that my heart
wasn't in it. I moved away to pursue a love that I once had but got lost. So I moved back home to heal what was broken in me, and to my surprise I found what I
was looking for. I found that my heart is in Chicago, and that my heart is in The Smashing Pumpkins.

"For a year now I have walked around with a secret, a secret I chose to keep. But now I want you to be among the first to know that I have made plans to renew and revive The Smashing Pumpkins. I want my band back, and my songs, and my dreams. In this desire I feel I have come home again.

Keep it tuned Thurrrsday for a few quotes that could jeopardize reunion plans:

“The level of dysfunctionality that was attributed to the band in public
was nothing compared to the dysfunctionality that actually went on.”
-- B. Corgan, on the Pumpkins
