Billy Corgan once had hair, he was in a band back then too. It was called The Smashing Pumpkins and they were pretty great, but then they broke up and at least 14 people were quite upset about it, despite Dr Baldy Heady resurrecting the band minus everybody but himself and Chamberlin. Since then Chamberlin has left, and Bobby Bald Boy got in some 8 year old child to play drums for his one man ego project widely loved musical endeavour. All this means that you might well be pining a return to the good old days, a simpler time when men were men and D’arcy wasn’t so hideous/being arrested. Well, no such luck champ.

That’s just one of those things that are never going to happen. If you don’t see somebody for a while, there’s the old thing, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Well, we haven’t had absence. The things that have happened between us in the interim haven’t been good. There’s been lawsuits and lots of stupid stuff. It’s only made it worse. If it was bad before, it’s really bad now. Jimmy [Chamberlin] and I aren’t enemies -– he’s just off doing what he wants to do, as he should. There’s not super bad blood between me and Jimmy that we’d never get on stage again. But I cannot in any way, shape, or form ever envision standing on a stage, playing music again with James [Iha] and D’arcy [Wretzky]. I just don’t see any situation where that would be possible.

How did you like all those bald jokes? Those work for you? BILLY CORGAN IS BALD! HA HA!

  • He’s had his day, yes, and perhaps they should have stayed broken up. HOWEVER, he is making sure old material is re-released with a bunch of goodies and demos for all the hard core fans. Also the actual final album, Machina, is going to have it’s second disc included for the first time properly. For the old fans, the man is brilliant. There are so many artists that once they have broken up, refuse to really give the fans any of the original stuff.

    Billy made the band again with Chamberlin since they were the only people in the band that contributed. D’arcy and James just did as they were told!

    It took a New Order break up for Hookie to finish Ian’s songs…
