War Of Words Between D’arcy Wretzky And Smashing Pumpkins Wages On!


D’arcy Wretzky has responded to recent comments made about Billy Corgan concerning her omission from any Smashing Pumkins’ reunion. In a recent article in Alternative Nation, Marilyn Manson’s former keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy, or, Pogo to you and me, made claims that Billy Corgan ‘fu**ed her’ out of The Pumpkins reunion.

D’arcy has since reacted to Pogo’s comments while also hurling insults at pumpkins’ guitarist, James Iha. Responding to Pogo, D’arcy wrote,


Thank you for your support & kind words Pogo!

– and right back atcha!

i remember how ‘fans’ used to get awfully confused when they met any of you and discovered that y’all were just “nice people”!

I know i’ve said it before, but it definitely deserves repeating at least once every couple decades or so:

You guys were always KIND?!!! 

There’s just one thing that you left out tho:

What do you call a ‘whiney little bitch’s bitch?’

She also remarked in another AN article where Jimmy Chamberlin credited Billy Corgan for playing bass on ‘I Am One.’ D’arcy commented,

’12 years

12 years i just sat there and looked ‘cute’.

all i did.’

The bass player also reacted to Billy Corgan, who is quoted as calling her recent comments ‘horrifying’ and claiming the ‘bridge is burned forever’ between them. D’arcy then opened up about her 1999 firing from the band. D’arcy commented,

‘so true.

was never even offered the option of rehab.

Just booted before 1/2 of my allotted time-off to get well was over.

Billy already had Mellissa lined up.’

A Pumkins fan, Corndog commented asking D’arcy, ‘Would you ever consider playing again with someone else other than the Pumpkins?’

D’arcy answered, ‘absolutely. I wanted to for many years but couldn’t get a single peer to call me back because of all billy’s public slandering of me.’

The Smashing Pumpkins US reunion tour kicks off on Gila River Arena, Glendale, Arizona.


Sometimes I feel like I’m speaking Martian to people.
