Jimmy Chamberlin hat sich nun in seinem Blog zum Ausstieg bei den PUMPKINS geäußert:
"By now you have heard the news of my departure from the Smashing Pumpkins. I will say, without going into any unnecessary details, that this represents a positive move forward for me. I can no longer commit all of my energy into something that I dont fully possess. I wont pretend Im into something Im not. I wont do it to myself, you the fan, or my former partner. I cant just 'Cash the check,' so to speak. Music is my life. It is sacred. It deserves the highest commitment at every level and the Pumpkins are certainly no different. Im sorry but it really IS that simple. There is no drama, bad blood, or anything else but a full commitment to music. My best goes out to Billy and Im glad he has chosen to continue under the name. It is his right. I will continue to make music with the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex, as well as pursuing other musical interests. I feel that I have a long way to go and a lot to give. Thanks to everyone for your kind words and support through all of this. I am constantly humbled by all of you! It is an honor and a privilege to play music for a living and I dont take it for granted, not even for a second."
