Smashing Pumpkins had four consecutive platinum albums, including 1993's “Siamese Dream,” before their farewell performance on Dec. 2, 2002. Frontman Billy Corgan blamed guitarist James Iha for the alt-rock band's dissolution, telling Spin magazine, “at some point, he developed this real unhappiness with me.” Iha denied playing any part, and he and Corgan eventually made peace in 2015. In 2018, the group's original members—Corgan, Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, minus bassist D'Arcy Wretzky—reunited, and their double album "CYR" dropped on Nov. 27, 2020.
