Come on, James... Just get back to the Pumpkins already!... Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff... AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA *sigh*
Oh, don't get me wrong - I know Billy's the heart of SP. but James was technically a lead guitarist in that he didn't just do the chords. ;)
But Billy was the same, so in a sense they had two lead guitarists!
Well earthcrossing, you can't say he's more of a heart of the band than Billy was (look at the band now :P) so I guess he's called rhythm for that reason. That's why I don't like "lead" and "rhythm" guitarists. Simple: One plays chords and one plays notes. No superiority implied.
