I'm pretty sure there was one original member.

Yeah, I was gonna say, that's pretty hard to do if Billy Corgan was an original member of the band...

My Corgan story.

Lollapalooza 1993-4 cannot remember which. New Orleans in the middle of summer, UNO...

The Smashing Pumpkins were supposed to come on at 10:00 am. They did not.

So during the dead heat of New Orleans in the summer I got to see Rage Against the Machine, Tribe Called Quest, The Beastie Boys, the throat singing monks, and George Clinton.

Corgan put the show off all day. Finally at 11:00 pm he came out and we were all done from the heat and the partying, an he says "you guys are not alive for us" and he sat down in a farking chair.

A lone beer bottle sailed up into the stage, and the resounding fark you billy rang the halls.

And 90% of us left.

They had one really good album and a couple okay ones. Billy Corgan has always been a complete asshole, however.

Black hole sun won't you come and wash away Billy Corgan?

""I am not in that business, obviously. I condemn anybody who's in that business (of a tour for cash) but doesn't admit [he's] in that business..."



It doesn't bug me that someone wants to do something to cash in. Soundgarden put in their time, and if they just want to tour and not make any new music that's no big deal. Even though Chris Cornell should have kept his mouth shut as well. These musicians are biatchier than a back room full of strippers.

Billy Corgan seems like the American hipster version of Liam Gallagher. Always ready to talk shiate but probably too chicken to start a bar fight because he'll get his Goodwill clothes dirty..

No, you're both wrong. Van Halen sang, "Brown Eyed Girl", and Steely Dan was in Foghat.

Well holy crap that was surprisingly awesome. Maybe I should give Cornell a little more credit.

And is anyone else ready for the 'deliberately confusing thing a with thing b' meme to just farking die? I can see how it would be fun, but it's not really that witty for a viewer most of the time.

Well, considering that Matt Cameron is currently the drummer for both bands, you might have to wait a little while.
 
2012-09-30 08:01:18 PM
Also I'll add that I can't stand Billy Corgan, though it should be noted, subby, that Corgan played everything but the drums on Siamese Dream. He's a huge control freak. I guess I'm not surprised that he said something that makes him sound like an asshole.

And FWIW I saw Soundgarden play The Gorge right after they reunited. Hands-down one of my all time favorite shows.

He's probably still hurt in his heart over something that someone in Soundgarden said to him at Lollapalooza in 1994.

I can't remember specifically if this article came out before or after Lollapalooza in the US (turns out, the story I referenced was at an Australian festival), but Billy was more than a tad whiny at the Charlotte show. The Pumpkins were the "headliners" but the crowd burned all their energy out during the Beastie Boys set (literally, there were fires set on the lawn of the Amphitheater, security guys dressed as rockers abandoning all pretense of trying to fit in, crazy madness)....

So, yea, the whole crowd was mellow by the time the Pumpkins came out and Corgan whined in between the first few songs about "sorry we're not as interesting as the Beastie Boys" and all that....and I remember thinking, "shiat, dude, we stayed for your set, didn't we? (we had a five or six hour drive home to look forward to that night, as I am sure lots of kids there did)"...

So, yea, lots of....emo that night. They were loud and good, though, once he just shut up and started playing.

That's my recollection of it, at any rate. That's been 18 years ago though (fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu)
