Auditioning for Smashing Pumpkins | The Top Ten Revealed

When the drummer to the stars, Kenny Aronoff, got the call to audition for The Smashing Pumpkins, he jumped on a plane immediately as he was a huge fan. He waited until 1am to finally get his chance to play with frontman Billy Corgan. They jammed on something "vibey" for a few minutes and he left the room without playing a single Smashing Pumpkins track. He was nearly certain he didn’t get the gig, but just a few days later he got the call that was the happiest day of his life.
