    Since he can't get kicked out of his own band, maybe his band members will just quit on him.

    the drummer left yesterday. this is actually happening.
    Still waiting for the "Scott Weiland forms a second Stone Temple Pilots" article.
    Billy Pumpkin shamelessly replaced his whole line up and kept the same band name, so its not without precedent
    Billy Pumpkin? First of all, Corgan _is_ Smashing Pumpkins. He always wrote the songs, and even recorded most of the instruments that you hear on those classic albums. Not to discount their contribution, but those other members you're considering integral were essentially a live band. As ridiculous as I thought it was to 'reform' a band that doesn't want to reunite, your statement only speaks to your ignorance. Second, Salvo was clearly referencing the Queensryche split. Why you would even bring up Smashing Pumpkins is bizarre.
