Billy Corgan recently took to his Web site (www.billycorgan.com) to reveal the reason the Smashing Pumpkins parted more than three years ago. "The truth of the matter is that James Iha broke up the Smashing Pumpkins. Not me, not Jimmy [Chamberlin], but James. Did it help that D'Arcy was fired for being a mean-spirited drug addict, who refused to get help? No, that didn't help keep the band together, not at all," he wrote. "Many friends at the time suggested letting James leave, so Jimmy and I could continue on under the name. But I was too loyal to the man I had started the whole thing with, and so I protected him until the very end."
