Billy Corgan admits that he would really only be interested in a possible Smashing Pumpkins reunion if it involved all of the original players.

"I felt like I had exhausted the idea [of the band] on my own," Corgan tells Rolling Stone. "That doesn't mean I haven't had help, but I think my interest in working on just the name Smashing Pumpkins is not as interesting to me without original people involved. It doesn't seem to have the same resonant energy for me. I like to think that if I do any work in the future it would be with them, if possible."

"[A reunion tour] has been knocked about," he adds. "There's certainly gears that turn and things get waved around, but until it's inked, I'm in the dark as much as anybody … But I'll say this and I mean it: If we never play a note together again, that's OK. I'm way, way more interested in the fact that we have peace with each other. I've reached the point in my life where I'm not in a hurry to get to anything. If it's there, great. If it's not, cool."

Corgan will release a new solo album, Ogilala, on October 13.
