  1. You guys are almost as bad as netphoria, the worst message board in the world.
  2. I didn't know this. But I do know that they have always been very prolific. They released more than 110 songs in 5 years time in the second half of the 90's. In the last couple of years Billy released two solo records with in total almost 30 songs and a Smashing Pumpkins record. Now with most of the original line-up in place, I don't see why this couldn't happen. They've had a lot of time this pandemic and most of it has already been recorded.
  3. They are going to release a 33-song sequel to Mellon Collie and Machina after releasing Cyr, the new double album that will come out next month. I'm guessing that will be more rocking again after their little synth-pop adventure. And if that's not enough, after that they will release Shiny volume 3, yet another new record. So we are basically getting three new records, with two of them being double albums. It's crazy how productive they are. https://www.nme.com/news/music/smashing-pumpkins-announce-mellon-collie-and-the-infinite-sadness-sequel-album-2795111?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=
  4. The last time I wore one was when I was 15 and then I quit playing football and I never had a good reason to ever wear one again. It's not even that I dislike how they look, I like the one Len posted, but I associate them with either athletes or this, or this, and I hated both groups while growing up because they always tried to beat the shit out of me in high school.
  5. I remember in the 90s seeing Blur and Oasis wear them a lot, which was confusing because all the alternative kids here listened to them, yet both bands dressed like those rave kids here who would beat up the alternative kids all the time.
  6. Oh, I didn't realize it was leather. But I've seen British people often wear sport jackets for everyday use, and not just when they're going to the football or whatever. Here, especially when I was a kid, only those rave idiots and trailer trash people would wear them.
  7. That's a thing over there in England, isn't it? Wearing sport jackets? The only people here who wear them are athletes and trailer trash.
  8. I don't know about that, I don't know how much he really contributed and whether he ''guided'' them a lot or not. Not to take anything away from him, but I can't imagine AFD or UYI to sound very different without him. When I think about the best songwriters in the band I think of Izzy, Axl and Slash, with Duff coming right after them.
  9. I don't disagree (although Duff claims that the only reason Arkeen got a song credit for It's So Easy is because he showed Duff an alternate guitar tuning), but saying he's one of the best songwriters in the band's history because he helped write a couple of songs, is a bit of a stretch in my opinion.
  10. I agreed with everything you said until you mentioned that Arkeen was one of the best songwriters in the band's history. I mean, he co-wrote a handful of songs.
  11. I'm going with Biden. Trump didn't even get the most votes last time but because of their idiotic system he still won. I don't think that will happen this time.
  12. Alright, for real this time. It's A minor pentatonic blues scale, I suck at tabbing so feel free to correct, but it probably is something like this: e|---------------------------------------------------------------------| B|---------------------------------------------------------------------| G|--7b-7b-5-7-5-----7b-7b-5-7-5---------------7b-7po5---5---7b-7po5--5-| D|-------------------------------7-5------------------7------------7---| A|-----------------------------------7-6-5-----------------------------| E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

  14. I haven't had any expectations since I read in a magazine in 1996 that Slash quit the band. Back then I figured it was over. Everything since then has already been more than I ever expected. Of course I hope for a new record now that Slash and Duff are back, but if it doesn't happen, so be it. No point in obsessing and getting disappointed like apparently so many people do who express their frustration on this forum on a daily basis. It's just a band.
