Smashing Pumpkins are down to one original member after Jimmy Chamberlin leaves.

The Smashing Pumpkins are down to just Billy Corgan after drummer Jimmy Chamberlin leaves. The following statement has been left on the band's site"

''The Smashing Pumpkins' guitarist, singer, songwriter and founding member Billy Corgan has announced that drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has left the group. Chamberlin joined the band Corgan founded in Chicago in 1988 and played on all their albums except Adore (1998). Corgan will continue to write and record as Smashing Pumpkins with plans to head into the studio this spring.''

Rock Sound has two questions. Did he leave or was he pushed? Should Billy be calling this a band anymore now that he is the only original member left?
