New Smashing Pumpkins bassist appeared on album cover

The new bassist for Smashing Pumpkins, Nicole Fiorentino, has revealed that she was one of two young girls who appeared on the cover of the band's 1993 album Siamese Dream (below).

According to an article on Exclaim.ca, the band members were not aware that Fiorentino was one of the album cover models when she was hired to play with them.

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.
