OG Pumpkins is not a 'wasted spot'. Jesus.
There hasn't been a show with the original lineup since 1996 after Melvoin OD'd shooting up with Jimmy and he got booted. Fun fact about Johnathan Melvoin is that his older sisters were in The Revolution, and his Dad was a member of the Wrecking Crew.
At the At the Drive In show in Nola last Friday I saw a guy wearing a Mellon Collie tour shirt....and got super f'n jealous. I was 12 when they played nearby on that tour and my Mom wouldn't let me go with friends. That would have been an awesome first true concert. Ah well. Maybe the OG lineup will play down South and I can hear Porcelina live finally.
Another booking I forgot about that wouldn't be too crazy would be Temple Of The Dog. They skipped Chicago on the tour and if I remember right, Soundgarden doesn't have any Chicago date as of now which is why I keep throwing their name out there.
