It's a story that somehow feels like it belongs on an awful daytime chat show -- 'My New Bandmate Was My Album Artwork Child' -- yet here apparently that's just what's happened to one of the grunge era's biggest bands.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has revealed via Twitter that his current bass player Nicole Fiorentino -- who joined the band only last year -- is no stranger to the band's back catalogue, having graced the cover of one of their albums.
Fiorentino had said she is one of the cherubic pair from the band's famous (and some would argue best) album, 1993's 'Siamese Dream.' (That's her on the left, apparently.)
The former member of Veruca Salt and Spinnerette joined the Pumpkins as a touring bassist before being made a full-fledged Pumpkin last year and, according to Corgan, decided to keep her odd connection with the band a secret so as not to jeopardize her chances.
What next? The baby from 'Pablo Honey' joining Radiohead on clarinet? The dog on 'Odelay' producing Beck's next album?
