Dopo le foto sul set che confermavano i lavori in corso per la reunion degli Smashing Pumpkins, sul sito ufficiale è apparso un timer che indica che mancano pochi giorni al momento in cui (forse) verrà rivelata la natura del work in progress.
Intanto Billy Corgan è tornato sulla questione del basso – visto che D’Arcy Wretzky non farà parte della line-up – rimanendo però misterioso: “secondo alcune fonti adesso sono un bassista”, scrive in un post, “Voglio dire, certo, ho suonato il basso in molte delle vostre canzoni preferite ma non sono sicuro di saper suonare il basso E cantare nello stesso momento? Ma forse ci proverò, un giorno”. Poi smentisce le voci che indicavano come nuovo bassista Jeff Schroeder e anche quelle che volevano James Iha alle quattro corde, e conclude con un invito a godersi il presente. Pazienza insomma, le risposte arriveranno, e pare che non manchi molto.

What a weekend! Saturday, I was high in the hills of Topanga, overlooking the ocean on a beautiful sunny day, and according to some reports (based on photos taken or leaked) I am now a bassist. I mean, yes, I have played bass on many of your fave songs but I’m not sure I can play bass AND sing at the same time? But perhaps I can try *someday*. Other reports have @jjjschroeder (who just celebrated a birthday) as a budding bassist. Which is interesting, because though Jeff doesn’t mind plucking at 4 strings if needed I know he would much prefer the dulcet tones of 6 (but I have heard him confess that 7 strings is just ‘too much’) @jamesihaofficial on the other hand, well, I haven’t seen him pick up a bass since Machina (which he played a fair share on, despite reports claiming a certain ‘flaxen Saxxon’ did; and as you know with much that is written is patently f-a-l-s-e). Which brings me back to my time in the hills of Topanga, dressed in a long coat, staring out into the ocean dreaming of a future not yet realized. Wisdom here dictates that I share something I have said many times as of late, which is: be here now, live in the present. There truly is no past (but that which lives in your mind), and the future too is but a dream. So kindly, truly, embrace the life you are living TODAY Which reminds me of a song that I also played bass on… #WPC #becarefulwhatyouwishfor (tattoo courtesy of @sir.cophagus
