New Smashing Pumpkins Bassist  Was Kid From Siamese Dream Album Cover
By Gregory AdamsThe Smashing Pumpkins†saga just gets weirder and weirder. While last week former bassist D'Arcy Wretzky was jailed over issues involving her disobedient horses, a stunning revelation about the group's current four-stringer has just come to light.

Back in 1993, the Chicago alt-rockers released their legendary breakthrough Siamese Dream. The album cover featured two little girls sharing a nice little hug. If ever you wondered what happened to those kids, wonder no more. Band leader Billy Corgan has revealed that one of the cover stars is now playing bass in his band.

It seems Corgan is just as shocked as any of us that his current bassist, Nicole Fiorentino, appeared in the iconic artwork. While the musician has been jamming with Corgan and company since last year, she only just revealed that she was Siamese Dream's cover star.

"Just found out the weirdest news: our bass player Nicole†just admitted she is one of the girls on the cover of†'Siamese Dream,'"†Corgan posted on his Twitter†account.

Apparently, the bassist kept the information top secret when she first joined the group, thinking the link would have sunk her chances of playing with the Pumpkins.

"She said she didn't want us to know because she thought maybe we wouldn't let her be in the band," Corgan continued.

Fiorentino is 31 years old, meaning she would have been roughly 13 at the time of the album's release. She appears to be even younger in the photo. While Corgan didn't reveal which of the girls is Fiorentino, we're going to go with the one on the right. (You can see a pic of grown-up Fiorentino here.)

This is not the first band the bassist has played with. Fiorentino previously played with fellow '90s-era Chicago band Veruca Salt, as well as with Brody Dalle's Spinnerette project.

Considering the revelation, can we expect the other girl to come out of hiding? For that matter, is it too much to ask the naked baby from Nirvana's Nevermind to start jamming with Dave Grohl?
