The Smashing Pumpkins Parting Ways With Drummer Jimmy Chamberlin


Billy Corgan insists that he will continue making music under the name of The Smashing Pumpkins even though Jimmy Chamberlin has left the band.

It is official, Jimmy Chamberlin is no longer The Smashing Pumpkins' drummer. "The SMASHING PUMPKINS' guitarist, singer, songwriter and founding member Billy Corgan has announced that drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has left the group," so a post on the band's official website and MySpace read.

With Chamberlin's exit, The Smashing Pumkins now only have Corgan as the remaining member. Though so, Corgan confirms that he "will continue to write and record as SMASHING PUMPKINS with plans to head into the studio this spring."

Jimmy Chamberlin joined The Smashing Pumpkins in 1988. He was fired from the band in 1996 after overdosing on heroin with former keyboardist Jonathan Melvoin in a hotel room in New York City. The incident resulted in Melvoin's death and Chamberlin's arrest for drug possession.

Three years later, Chamberlin re-joined the band. He contributed in the band's brief tour dubbed "The Arising", which showcased their new and classic materials, and worked on the band's fifth studio album "Machina/The Machines of God".
