The Smashing Pumpkins Hold Open Auditions For A New Bassist & Keyboardist
Hmmm anyone looking for a bass or keys kig? With the news that bassist Ginger Pooley has left the band to raise her new baby with her husband, Billy Corgan has announced that he will look for a new bassist in the same manner as he found new drummer Mike Byrne last year: via an open audition process. Corgan also says that auditions will be held for a new keyboardist who is a fan of–and can play in the prog-rock style of–Jon Lord and Rick Wakeman.
Bassists and keyboardists looking to play with The Pumpkins should send their background info (including age, a resume of any bands/recorded work), photos and performance web links via email only, either to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: only musicians with video clips can be considered. Youtube.com type posts are perfect–that’s how Mike was found. Final date for submission is March 31st.
