did anyone see this? http://idolator.com/5079624/billy-corgan-prepares-to-test-that-1000-true-fans-hypothesis-by-alienating-a-huge-chunk-of-his-audience
no matter what.
They've been disappointing live for the last ten years - this sort of thing is no surprise. Still better than the vast majority of bands.
I guess I got lucky :)
But even you have to admit this is nothing short of cuntish and I love the pumpkins (up to Adore)
as good as they can be nowadays, but still disappointing. Guess I've got high standards since I saw them many times on the Siamese Dream and Melon Collie tours when they were utterly fantastic.
easier when SP were better. Let's say we let Rolling Stone take over from here...
I think the guy that wrote that thing probably expected more and of course you'd be disappointed if it was the first gig in your hood for 9 years but Billy's always kind of been out of fucking touch with his audience. Anyone remember his 'women are bitches' rant at the 02 earlier this year? Clearly the guy's not much of a smooth talker.
that you can't be a miserable cunt. People who are lucky enough to a) be in great bands or b) make millions should have no reason to be miserable. It defies all logic.
probably not even in the top 5 famous 5 pumpkins songs. Billy Corgan has always been like this, I saw them 4 times back in the day, everytime they would play stuff from an album they hadnt released yet with a few reinterpretations of old songs, im kinda glad he hasn't changed
it got a huge amount of airplay. i'd assume in the US its only beaten in that regard by today or cherub rock.
Everyone knows Today, Bullet With Butterfly Wings, Cherub Rock & Disarm
what a TOTAL dickhead.
ROCK IS DEAD
