Is a 19-Year-Old From Beaverton the New Smashing Pumpkins Drummer?

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Mon, Jun 8, 2009 at 3:30 PM


Idolator is reporting the rumor that batshit crazy misunderstood Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has picked Mike Byrne, a 19-year-old from Beaverton, as the winner of his drummer competition.

Byrne performs in Moses, Smell The Roses (who just recently played a house show in SE Portland), and while he has yet to be formally announced as the pick, he's the heavily-rumored replacement for longtime drummer Jimmy Chamberlin.

Good luck, kid.
