Corgan Vs Fans
NME reports: BILLY CORGAN stormed offstage during a gig last night in MELBOURNE (July 26).

The ex-Smashing Pumpkins singer was performing at the city's Palais Theatre when fans began shouting for songs by his former band.

According to Undercover.com one audience member yelled "Play some Pumpkins" before Corgan retorted "Can I live my life for today?"

Nearing the close of the gig, another request for Smashing Pumpkins songs led Corgan to say "f*** this", and put his microphone down before walking offstage. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

SOiL Vs Drowning Pool
Blabbermouth reports: SOIL bassist Tim King has explained his decision to publicly slam the group's former singer, Ryan McCombs, for joining DROWNING POOL after McCombs allegedly deemed the songs on the first DROWNING POOL album "average."

"The reason for my [previous] post was because I couldn't hold it in any longer. I have been for years and was willing to never say a word. But [Ryan] joining the band and with the events and real truth of what happened, I couldn't stand by and let the charade go on any further. I loved [late DROWNING POOL frontman] Dave [Williams] as a metal brother and a musician and we got pretty close over the year I knew him. The 'Sinner' record is still one of my favorites to this day as well as the new album ['Desensitized']. I think Jason Gong has an amazing voice as well. But when I hear a certain ex-singer of ours saying how close he was to Dave when he never even knew him properly or liked his album and THEN join that band when he said those shoes were too big to fill and never would do that is just plain wrong, in my opinion.
