I think the last time I saw them was their last show together with all four. D'Arcy quit the next day

She got busted for crack in like 99/2000.

I think she lives on a horse farm in Minnesota now.

While I can see wanting the original band back together because of nostalgia...this isn't GNR or Jane's. It's always been the Billy Corgan show (with a fucking amazing drummer in Jimmy Chamberlain). D'arcy filled a void almost solely for aesthetic purposes. And James Iha's contributions to the band's catalogue were minuscule at best. Again, it would be "neat" to see the original band back together...but Billy can put on just as solid of a show with other people filling in.

P.S. Jeff Schroeder is way more talented than James Iha.

I saw them a few days before that in Phoenix. I'll always remember the date because it was the day after the Columbine high school shooting.

She apparently has a public FB page, and looked like this in 2014:

"They" were terrible in 2007 when it was just Billy and Jimmy. It was either Schroeder or some touring hack... anyway it was so terrible we left halfway through. Bjork the day before was incredible.

Billy has basically implied that a future reunion of the original band is in the cards, without actually making an official announcement.

That'd be cool. I wonder how Darcy is doing these days after a rough period there. I'd be surprised if she could hack a full 2-hour performance. More likely a guest appearance on a couple songs. But I guess we'll see.

Billy still basically saying that the band is reuniting without actually saying "the band is reuniting".

Interesting...Rick Rubin is producing his new solo album.

Who knows? In my opinion, Billy was/is the band...with some help from Jimmy's amazing drumming. James and D'arcy didn't really bring anything to the table...but their return would probably pull people in because of the nostalgia factor.

Announcement appears o be coming in days if not a few weeks about the reunion. And of course, there's high school level social media drama involving the probability that Wretzky will not be involved.

Please cite anything other than that hack fucking site.

But anyway, pics have been posted of Billy, Jimmy, and James recording. No Darcy though.

I'd wager to bet Melissa Auf Der Maur is brought back.

Or they'll go famous and get someone like Kim Deal.
