And if Billy quits, will they hold auditions to replace him?

If you establish a band and have a few hits, there are times in which the band can keep on going for decades afterwards...even if most of the original members have long since departed. Such is the case with Smashing Pumpkins, which only has one original member - some guy named Billy Corgan. There was another original member, drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, but he left recently.

But both NME and Stereogum are reporting that Corgan - excuse me, Smashing Pumpkins - are holding auditions for a drummer on April 10 in Los Angeles. Applicants...

...should send their background info, photos and performance web links via email only to:

Wonder if this guy will submit his info.

At this point, I don't know if they have reserved the e-mail address.
