James Iha Not Joining The Smashing Pumpkins



The reunion of The Smashing Pumpkins will not be completed by ex-member James Iha.

It looks like the reunion of The Smashing Pumpkins will not come full circle. Former member James Iha has confirmed his absence from the reunion.

Revealing that he has no interest in re-tying the knot with the newly reunited band, Iha said that he is too busy with his own schedule. "I'm writing for a solo record, which I'm going to record this year, and working on my indie label Scratchie Records," he said.

The band that will begin a series of concert in May is not even close to making a deal with Iha. In Rolling Stone magazine Iha said, "No, I'm not part of the current Smashing Pumpkins album or tour, I haven't spoken to Billy (Corgan) in years."

The Smashing Pumpkins was a successful band in 1990s before internal conflicts, drug use and poor record sales forced it to break up in 2000. In April 2006, vocalist Billy Corgan announced the band's revival with only him and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin on board.
