Smashing Pumpkins bassist is girl on 'Siamese Dream' cover
Nicole Fiorentino is one of two girls on 1993 artwork
Billy Corgan has revealed that the band’s bass player is one of the two girls pictured on the cover of Smashing Pumpkins' ‘Siamese Dream’ album.
Nicole Fiorentino, who is 31 years old now, would have been around 13 when the album was released in 1993.
She joined the Chicago band last year, but has only just revealed to Corgan that she was pictured on the cover of the album.
Corgan tweeted last night from Twitter.com/Billy: “Just found out the weirdest news: our bass player Nicole just admitted she is one of the girls on the cover of 'Siamese Dream'.”
He didn’t reveal which of the two girls pictured on the cover Fiorentino was.
He added that the reason he’d only just found out was that Fiorentino "said she didn't want us to know because she thought maybe we wouldn't let her be in the band".
Fiorentino is a former member of Spinnerette and Veruca Salt. She is Smashing Pumpkins’ fourth bass player, and second since they reformed.
