The Smashing Pumpkins have launched open auditions to find a new bassist and keyboard player to replace Ginger Pooley, who quit last week to enjoy motherhood.

Auditions will be held by frontman Billy Corgan, who hopes the process will be successful in finding someone who "can play in the prog-rock style of Jon Lord and Rick Wakeman".

"We were lucky enough to find drummer Mike Byrne through an open audition process - so why not open the doors again to anyone who might be interested for the bass or keyboard position," he said on the band's website.

He added: "As you can see from our past and present - age, race, or a person's background is not an issue. Everyone is truly welcome to audition."

Hopefuls are being asked to send background information, photos and performance web links to PumpkinsBass@gmail.com or PumpkinsKeys@gmail.com, with the final date for submissions on March 31.
