Happy birthday James Yoshinobu Iha. The former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist and founding member turns 45 this Tuesday. We’re noting his birthday with one of our favorite tracks, “I am one, ” from the 1991 platinum selling Gish.
Although Billy Corgan has continued with the name Smashing Pumpkins and new bandmates, who’s kidding whom? Despite the dirty laundry that’s been aired over the years about the relationship between Corgan and the other three original members, the line-up with Iha, D’arcy Wrezty and Jimmy Chamberlin will forever be considered iconic and groundbreaking.
