Idolator is reporting the rumor that batshit crazy misunderstood Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has picked Mike Byrne, a 19-year-old from Beaverton, as the winner of his drummer competition.

Byrne performs in Moses, Smell The Roses (who just recently played a house show in SE Portland), and while he has yet to be formally announced as the pick, he's the heavily-rumored replacement for longtime drummer Jimmy Chamberlin.

Good luck, kid.

End Hits: If it doesn't work out, maybe he can get a job on D'arcy's horse farm in Watervliet, Michigan. (I'm not making that up, she really does have a horse farm.)
