Smashing Pumpkins Return
antiMusic reports: Billy Corgan plans a smashing return for his seminal alternative band The Smashing Pumpkins. Corgan let the cat out of the bag in a big way on Tuesday when he placed a full-page advertisement in his hometown newspaper, The Chicago Tribune, declaring his intention to bring back the band. 

The ad, in the form of a letter starts off talking about his new solo CD TheFutureEmbrace and his pride at representing Chicago as an artist. Corgan then details his immediate plans to support the new CD with a tour that kicks off on Wednesday. 

But the bombshell comes later when Corgan wrote, "When I played the final Smashing Pumpkins show on the night of December 2, 2000, I walked off the Metro stage believing that I was forever leaving a piece of my life behind. I naively tried to start a new band, but found that my heart wasn't in it. I moved away to pursue a love that I once had but got lost. So I moved back home to heal what was broken in me, and to my surprise I found what I was looking for. I found that my heart is in Chicago, and that my heart is in The Smashing Pumpkins.

...Top Five Special: Dizzy Reed (Guns N' Roses)
Welcome to the Top Five special! We send out requests to tons of bands and labels to have their artists share with us their Top Five Albums of All Time and we have quite a collection of artists from across the musical spectrum that have turned in their picks! In the coming weeks we will be unveiling a new Top Five list each week day. Lists from big names as well as indie artists will be included, so we hope you enjoy this special and you discover some music in the process. Keavin (antiMusic.com editor)

With the kick off this week we're going to feature lists from a rather diverse collection of artists (members of Guns N' Roses, Styx, As I Lay Dying as well as Chino XL).  To get things started right we're kicking off with two lists today!  With his birthday we had to begin this special with Dizzy Reed, the longest running member of Guns N' Roses (aside from Axl) and from the other side of the musical spectrum, Chino XL. 

Dizzy Reed of Guns N' Roses's Top Five Albums of All Time!

5.  Best of Mountain - Mountain: Don't like to include best of records but all my friends had this one when we were kids learning about rock and roll. There would be no Metal at all without this band.
(samples / buy cd)

4.  Rocks - Aerosmith:  One of the first records I ever bought. If you look at the sound levels compared to records that came out before this one, this one is when things suddenly started to get loud. Rock song writing at it's best.
(samples / buy cd)

3. One More For the Road - Lynyrd Skynyrd:  The best live album ever by the hardest working band of that era or possibly any era, except for the band I'm in. And the best pure rock blues piano player ever.
(samples / buy cd)

2.  Machine Head - Deep Purple: They heard "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain on the radio. They thought about giving up 'cause they didn't think they could top that. They wrote this record instead. 'Nough said. 
(samples / buy cd)

1.  Exile On Main Street - The Rolling Stones: I would have included every Stones record from the 70's but that would have been retarded. This is my favorite record by my favorite band. It's magic. If you don't get it, listen to the other stuff they were doing around that time (Sticky Fingers, It's Only Rock and Roll, Goats Head Soup, etc.) then go back and listen to this.  If you don't get it then, then you are retarded.
(samples / buy cd)

About Dizzy Reed: What's cool about Dizzy is that he takes every opportunity to showcase his favorite music and influences. When he's not working with GNR he's playing shows with his band Hookers N Blow which features a set of rock classics (many included in his list above). It's a great time so if you get the chance to see him, definitely do so! They tour regularly. You can also catchy Dizzy most Thursday nights at the Cat Club in Hollywood playing with The Starf**kers, an all-star jam headed by Stray Cat Slim Jim Phantom and Dizzy's old bandmate Gilby Clark.  They bust out the classics too and you never know who will show up to jam with them!  Finally, if you're in the LA area comedown to The Joint (on pico) tonight (June 22, 2005) for a birthday bash for Dizzy!
