While most of you won’t be too surprised, Billy Corgan finds himself with yet another problem to work through. The lone survivor of the Smashing Pumpkins needs a new bassist and keyboardist. As Blabbermouth reports, bassist Ginger Reyes has left the band. Today she issued a press release, which states, “Although I’ve been blessed beyond belief over the past few years through playing with the Pumpkins, my priority now is to keep our little family unit together, which includes my husband and my baby.”

But Corgan holds no grudges; in fact, he “respect[s] her decision to put her family first” and “appreciate[s] everything that she has contributed.” Considering she never laid down one track in the studio, where Corgan currently dwells, he shouldn’t be too depressed.

Neither should you, as much like teenage drummer Mike Byrne, you could be a member lackey of the Pumpkins, too! In fact, if you get your application materials together — a YouTube video should suffice — and send ’em to pumpkinsbass@gmail.com or pumpkinskeys@gmail.com by March 31st, you might just be the next person who Corgan orders around.

But considering his recent work, you might be better off starting some underground dance alt band, instead.
