Her claim to have been dropped from the band's reunion plans last month seemed to be confirmed when a weekend photoshoot of Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin and recent Pumpkins member Jeff Schroeder hit Twitter. Fans wondered if perhaps Corgan or Schroeder would be playing bass, and that seems to have upset Corgan.
In a lengthy Instagram post, he took shots at whoever leaked the photo and Wretzky, without ever mentioning her name. Corgan wrote, "According to some reports (based on photos taken or leaked) I am now a bassist. I mean, yes, I have played bass on many of your fave songs but I'm not sure I can play bass AND sing at the same time?" He then said that as for Schroeder he "doesn't mind plucking at 4 strings if needed I know he would much prefer the dulcet tones of 6."
And when talking about Iha, he took a shot at Wretzky -- "I haven't seen him pick up a bass since Machina (which he played a fair share on, despite reports claiming a certain 'flaxen Saxxon' did; and as you know with much that is written is patently f-a-l-s-e)." Corgan took one more shot at Wretzky's contributions to the band when he wrote, "So kindly, truly, embrace the life you are living TODAY -- Which reminds me of a song that I also played bass on."
