Smashing Pumpkins reveal new bassist
The revolving door of band members that is the Smashing Pumpkins rotated recently as the announcement of their new bass player was made.
Billy Corgan continues to follow in the tradition of having female bass players and revealed that Nicole Fiorentino would be handling the low end of SP’s tunes.
Fiorentino was previously the bassist for bands including Twilight Sleep and Light FM (via ). She also has recorded music and played with bands Veruca Salt, Spinnerette and Radio Vago.
Fiorentino has even updated her (does she not have Facebook?) to reveal the fact that she now rolls with Corgan and crew.
“Nicole is proud to announce that she is the newest member of The Smashing Pumpkins. She is keeping herself very busy these days in the studio with Billy and the rest of the pumpkins crew. She will also be performing live with band for any future tours/gigs.”
I’m wondering how long this is gonna last. Hey, here’s an idea! Maybe she could also play bass for Interpol. I hear their bass player just jumped ship.
