I figured this was common knowledge among SP fans. Just goes to show that a reunion would only happen for cosmetic reasons, those people are in no way needed for musical purposes.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, SMASHING PUMPKINS founder and frontman Billy Corgan said in an interview with the "Why Not Now?" podcast that he contemplated committing suicide in 1991 when he realized that the success of PEARL JAM and NIRVANA was dwarfing that of his band. At the time the PUMPKINS had released their 1991 album "Gish", which had sold well for an independent release, but then NIRVANA's "Nevermind" and PEARL JAM's "Ten" came along and shattered all previous expectations.

Corgan explained: "Within a short span of time, I went from thinking I was very successful within my given field to all the rules had changed in my given field. Everything I had built myself up to be and do was no longer as relevant as it needed to be. I went into a very strange depression because… the change made me feel kind of inadequate in a way I wasn't prepared for."

Corgan said his depression deepened to the point where he could no longer write music and he began to consider his options. He recalled: "I reached this kind of morning in my life where it was like I'm either going to jump out a gay man's telescope, or I was going to change my life. I know that sounds very dramatic, but that's literally what happened… I was giving away stuff, and planning my eulogy, and all sorts of weird self-absorbed things."

Corgan added that he finally woke up one morning and things had changed. He said: "I kind of stared out the gay man's telescope and thought, 'Okay, well, if you're not going to jump out the gay man's telescope, you better do whatever it is you need to do.' That morning I wrote, I think it was the song 'Today', which people would probably be fairly familiar with."

"Today", which became the second single from the PUMPKINS' 1993 album "Siamese Dream", reached No. 4 on the Modern Rock chart and became their first outright smash, helping the album to sell more than four million copies and vaulting the PUMPKINS to nearly the same level as NIRVANA and PEARL JAM.

My brother's first place in the official city of the chicago cubs was just down the road from the house that the members of Smashing Pumpkins lived in. He said it was a huge Victorian style place that was painted purple.

This track was suppose to be released for the crow soundtrack but Brandon Lee died in the making of the movie so STP gave Big Empty to the movie instead because they thought Only Dying would be innapropriate to the situation...

"Happy Fourth of July from Alternative Nation! With that, we thought it would be cool to further honor Chris Cornell by celebrating Soundgarden’s song, “4th of July.” The song is certainly not about patriotism and fireworks, instead the story behind it is rather interesting.

Chris Cornell said in a 1994 interview with RIP Magazine that it is about an acid trip he experienced:

“One time I was on acid, and there were voices ten feet behind my head. The whole time I’d be walking, they’d be talking behind me. It actually made me feel good, because I felt like I was with some people. At one point I was looking back, and I saw that one person was wearing a black shirt and jeans, and the other person was wearing a red shirt. They were always there.

It was kinda like a dream, though, where I’d wake up and look and focus once in a while and realize there was no one there. I’d go, ‘Oh, f–k, I’m hearing voices.’ ‘4th of July’ is pretty much about that day. You wouldn’t get that if you read it. It doesn’t read like, ‘Woke up, dropped some acid, got into the car and went to the Indian reservation.”

I've recently stumbled on to a treasure trove of 90's era inside storytelling. Xana, the former girlfriend of Andy Wood (Mother Love Bone) shares awesome tales from the early gloryhole era Seattle scene via her blog Grunge Storytellers. There is also the rememberlayne.com website that is owned by one of Demri's (Layne's gf) best friends which hosts a wealth of fun facts/stories on the subject.
Apparently Xana later dated Jerry Cantrell, and supposedly had her vag regularly licked by Demri :taint:
