I'll have to check the list, but Smashing Pumpkins would fall into this category as well. Billy Corgan records everything in the studio, but uses a band on tour.

EDIT - Yep, they're on the list.


I don't think that's the case with the Pumpkins. Corgan may do that now as a solo artist, but SP was always James Iha, D'arcy Wretzky, Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin. They recorded in studio as a group and toured as a group.

Where NIN differs is that Reznor typically records as a solo artist but forms a band to tour with. The backing band is relatively constant when NIN tours, but Reznor is solely responsible for the music.


I could have swore I read years ago that he recorded everything himself in the studio. If that's not the case then obviously the Pumpkins belong on the list.

Wow. That's great. If you wouldn't mind compiling the final list and then emailing it to me that would be great. PM me if you no longer have my email.
