Smashing Pumpkins

1996 – Smashing Pumpkins begin a long awaited tour. The tour was supposed to start a few weeks earlier, but had to be delayed due to some much needed rehearsal time for Filter drummer Matt Walker and Frogs’ drummer Dennis Flemion. The two borrowed musicians are needed to replace Jonathan Melvoin and Jimmy Chamberlin. Melvoin died earlier in the year of a drug overdose, while Chamberlin was fired by the band for heroin possession.
