Smashing Pumpkins line-up changes again

Smashing Pumpkins are a bit like a Harry Redknapp football team. The name remains the same, but under Billy Corgan, the squad is always changing.

Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk and The Killers Bassist Mark Stoermer, who joined the band last November, have now departed. They’ll be replaced by Robin Diaz and Katie Cole respectively.

Cole is scheduled to open for Smashing Pumpkins on their first ever acoustic tour, kicking off next week in Buffalo, NY, while Diaz has previously collaborated with One Direction. And Chris Cornell. And Courtney Love. But also One Direction.

Billy. Mate. Ask Zayn next time. He’s got nothing on. That would be amazing.
