Smashing Pumpkins: Day in the Life Midday Rehearsal Part 2

  • Published on Aug 2, 2007
  • Day in the life of the Smashing Pumpkins: Lunch is over and it's time to jump back into business. This rehearsal consists of mainly acoustic songs that makeup the slower section of the set.

    The band rehearses for over 3 hours a day rehasing sticky parts of songs and finding new solutions to make each performance better than the last.

    This video features clips of the songs 99 Floors and God & Country.

    I love how Billy tailors his new songs to suit his voice a little bit better live. Well I don't know that, but it sounds like this. It was an awesome pumpkin performance!

    Billy really commands that band. But, he IS the man.

    Like I said--
    I for one, thought listening to a 'more modified' La Dolly Vita but this 99 floors really pulled it off..

    I wish the studio version of "For God and Country" was acoustic. It's so much better.

    Billy looks like darth vader with the helmet off, when he wears the harmonica.

    really so much of the new shit that isn't on the album, is far better than the shit on the album.
