Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin is giving fans some strong hope for a reunion in 2018.  Chamberlain has been on board for several projects with Billy Corgan and is hopeful that the band could get back together for the 25th Anniversary of “Siamese Dream.”  The drummer also said that guitarist James Iha is up for it and Billy has had conversations with original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky who left the band in 1999. Chamberlin said coordinating this possible reunion is like “Grumpy Old Men 3” except there’s 4 grumpy old men and one’s a woman.

Now that Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has some free time, he’s starting to focus on a possible collaborations with Queen’s Brian May.  Iommi said the pair got together recently and started to discuss the prospect, but it will have to wait a bit as May in on the road currently with Queen.
