That URL forwards to the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex's blog. As of this writing, the only blog entry there consists of Jimmy sort of explaining why he left the Smashing Pumpkins (the second time). I left a comment there a while back, asking Jimmy to record more drum loops for my benefit.

Speaking of the Pumpkin(s), Billy Corgan is looking for new drummer(s) with whom to record and/or perform on tour. I sent that link to my old drummer from a band that existed a long time ago, in a galaxy far away. My bias is showing, but that particular drummer could convincingly replace Jimmy and add his own complementary style to Billy's usual 4/4 and sometimes 6/8 songs - and "Geek U.S.A.," too, but that song had better be left alone without Jimmy.

The dude who plays along to Pumpkins songs on YouTube with his electronic drum kit, Phil McKenna, would also be a good Internet-age replacement. If that process worked for Journey, it could work for Billy, too.
