1. Way to ruin 'Smashing Pumpkins'.

How/when/why did Billy Corgan become a batshit crazy gun nut?

2. He's been a kooky conspiracy nut for some time now

Really far out on too many topics to recall. Then there's the hazily fundie religious elements.

13. Yah

Agree with you, there.



Don't think BC ever forgave Mr. Malkmus for this one, either.

8. Does Smashing Pumpkins even get air time anymore?

 

I can not even think of one song they can call a hit.

14. To be fair, "Pet Sounds" was pretty fucking Groundbreaking.

Right up there with Sgt. Peppers in the Psychedelia canon.

10. I'd LOVE to be an "erstwhile" musician whose band has sold over 17,000,000 albums.

And, I guess he'd have to get some credit for their success seeing as how he's the only member who's been part of the band since its inception.

Erstwhile... LOL!

11. They were pretty great.

Meant an awful lot to me.

Nowadays, he works mainly as a giant asshole (okay, sure, he was always branded a giant asshole by many, many people, but he was primarily a superbly functioning songwriter) & tinfoil milliner, occasionally squeezing out an insipid aural abomination which may or may not have a loose connection to actual music.
