Smashing Pumpkins Frontman BIlly Corgan Announces Drummer Jimmy Chamberlin Has Quit the Group

Billy Corgan who is planning on recording new material under the Pumpkins moniker has announced via the website, that drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has quit the band. So it seems the band that began its live career with a drum machine again finds itself without a human to perform percussive duties.

Whether that situation is temporary or permanent remains to be seen, but one can assume there is no shortage of drummers prepared to pick up the sticks in Chamberlin's absence. Chamberlin who has had a rocky past with the band due to personal issues, joined the band in 1988 and played on all of the bands albums with the exception of Adore.
