Biography,Early lifeChamberlin was born in Joliet, Illinois, one of six children. His father and his older brother Paul were both active in jazz bands, playing clarinet and drums respectively, and his brother Paul is still an active rock drummer, with a local cover band, Chasing Amy.Chamberlin began drumming at age 9. His early instruction included Latin, Brazilian, and big band techniques, but focused on jazz, under the tutelage of future Yanni drummer, Charlie Adams.Chamberlin left home at age 15 and joined a series of local bands. Although his early music career proved profitable, Chamberlins father pressured him into going to college. In 1994, Chamberlin revealed that he had been estranged from his father for seven years. After three years with the show band JP and the Cats, Chamberlin, wearied by the touring schedule, quit and got a job building custom homes with his brother-in-law. Before long, he joined the Smashing Pumpkins.The Smashing PumpkinsMain article: The Smashing PumpkinsThe Smashing Pumpkins were looking for a live drummer to open a show at the Metro, a Chicago club. Chamberlin and Billy Corgan met through a mutual friend, and Chamberlin expressed cautious interest, later recalling:So I went out and saw the band – Billy, James, and Darcy – playing at Avalon with a drum machine. Man, did they sound horrible! They were atrocious. But the thing I noticed was that not only were the song structures good, but Billys voice had a lot of drive to it, like he was dying to succeed. So I ended up driving from work every Wednesday to rehearse with them.Corgan had his own concerns:He was wearing a pink t-shirt, stonewashed jeans, he had a mullet haircut, and he was driving a 280Z, and had yellow drums. We were sort of looking each other in the eye thinking, This aint gonna happen, this is not the guy. [But] hed learned all our songs, as only Jimmy can, off the top of his head, and, within one practice, we were ready to play. It was amazing. We just knew right away. Hes that good.Chamberlin made tons of cash as a carpenter, before giving up the job to move to Chicago and devote himself to the band. Chamberlins entry quickly pushed the band toward a more powerful, intense sound. The first two Smashing Pumpkins albums, Gish and Siamese Dream, were performed almost entirely by Corgan and Chamberlin alone.[citation needed]During this period Chamberlin struggled with substance abuse. During the recording of 1993s Siamese Dream in Marietta, Georgia, Chamberlin often disappeared for days at a time into the drug underworld of Atlanta, while the rest of the band feared for his life.[11] He later said of his drug addiction that Its pretty textbook […] Guy makes it in rock band, gets very full of himself, starts thinking hes indestructible, and all of a sudden he destroys himself.[12]In the midst of the lengthy world tour supporting 1995s multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Chamberlins father died, and his substance abuse hit a fever pitch.[13] Of this period, Chamberlin later said, I learned that escapism was better than emotion, and thats where I hid… It got to the point that I really didnt care. Life was scary for me.[13] Prior to shows scheduled July 96 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Chamberlin and touring keyboardist Jonathan Melvoin overdosed on heroin, Melvoin subsequently died, and Chamberlin was kicked out of the band, ostensibly to protect his health.[14]In October 1998, Corgan convened a band meeting in which Chamberlin was reinstated as the groups drummer, and the band decided to break up after one more album and tour.[11] The band yielded two albums in 2000, Machina/The Machines of God and the freely distributed Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music, before performing a farewell show in Chicago on December 2, 2000.[citation needed]Other projects, 2001–2016Chamberlin went on to form Zwan in 2001 with Corgan. Although Chamberlin predicted that the bands going to be huge,[12] Zwan produced only one album, Mary Star of the Sea, before disbanding in 2003. Chamberlin formed his next project, Jimmy Chamberlin Complex, in 2004, and released its first studio album, Life Begins Again, in 2005. Chamberlin stated that, with the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex, I just wanted to make music and not really be constrained to making a Zwan or a Pumpkins record..[15] On the 29th of April 2016, the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex released a new song Paranoid via Jimmy Chamberlins Official Twitter account [16]SkysawWhile giving drum clinics in late 2009, Chamberlin announced his next project, a band called This.

The new band name, Skysaw, was officially announced in December 2010.[citation needed]In March 2011 it was announced that the Skysaw full-length LP would be released on Dangerbird Records. On June 21, 2011, the new, extended 10 song LP Great Civilizations was released.

Touring members included Boris Skalsky and Paul Wood of New York band Dead Heart Bloom.[citation needed]On August 23, 2012 Jimmy announced at a drum clinic that he had left Skysaw.[citation needed]Corporate venturesIn 2011, after introductions by then 1871 CEO Kevin Willer, Chamberlin began working with the burgeoning Chicago tech scene as an investor and advisor. Chamberlins increased involvement with startups led him to an introduction to LiveOne Inc., a digital media company. Founders Tim and John Ganschow (of Chicago) were presenting their new social platform, CrowdSurfing to an investment group that included Chamberlin. Chamberlin was impressed with the fledgling company and the CrowdSurfing technology and subsequently came on board to support the company both financially and as an advisor. In 2013 Chamberlin became Chief Executive Officer of LiveOne Inc.[17] LiveOne Inc. has since partnered with Yahoo, YouTube, Live Nation, AEG, Vans, Phish, C3, Budweisers Made In America Festival,[18] Umphreys McGee,[19] among others.In November 2014 Chamberlin attended Web Summit, Irelands top tech conference. While there, he spoke of his time with the Smashing Pumpkins as well as on the future of Digital Music[20] at the Web Summit Centre Stage with Adrian Grenier, Chris Kaskie, and Brian Morrissey. He pointed to digital as the medium for artists to truly express themselves and create art that connects with their fans: Artists are looking for a destination … [and] digital gives them the opportunity to realize some of those destinations and package them in a way that allows them to be creative.[20]While there, he also name checked U2 and said their recent iTunes-wide album release moved the ball forward for everybody.[21]Frank CatalanoChamberlin joined Chicago jazz saxophonist Frank Catalano in 2013 for a number of live performances in the Chicago area.

This record features David Sanborn.[24]Revival of The Smashing PumpkinsBilly Corgan announced at an April 2004 solo performance that he and Chamberlin intended to work together again in the future. After appearing on Life Begins Again, Corgan announced plans to renew and revive the Pumpkins through a full-page advertisement in his hometowns newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, on June 21, 2005.[25] Chamberlin contacted Corgan to accept, and on February 2, 2006, reported that he and Corgan had signed a new management deal with the Front Line Management, with a spokesperson confirming they had signed under the name Smashing Pumpkins.[26]Chamberlin and Corgan, without the other original members, decided to record an album alone. They played their first show in Paris on May 22, 2007, with three new band members. On July 10, the new album, Zeitgeist, was released. Over the next year and a half, the band released more recordings and toured extensively.[citation needed]On March 20, 2009 the Pumpkins website announced that Chamberlin was leaving the band.
