"Here is No Why" by Smashing Pumpkins Drum Cover

This is my cover of "Here is No Why" by the Smashing Pumpkins, a song I forgot how amazing it is. It really encapsulates the genius of Billy Corgan, his insane guitar sound, his song composing and arrangement, his vocal melodies and lyrics. Everything is just perfect in this song. And Jimmy Chamberlain's parts just tie the whole thing together.

I did my best to sound as good as Jimmy, but I know that will never happen. I hope you enjoy this one. I also did a couple stick flips in honor of the Stick Flip Master, Steve Osborne. Steve, I hope you have a laugh or two!

I am also dedicating this one to my wife. Her favorite band growing up was the Pumpkins, and I'm sure this was one of her favorite songs. I hope you enjoy:
