    For as long as The Smashing Pumpkins have been in existence, fans have referred to frontman Billy Corgan as well … Billy Corgan. However, it looks like we’ve all been going about it the wrong way these past 30 or so years.

    After fans sang happy birthday during a show in Lima this past week, the famed Chicago cat lover set the record straight, declaring: “My name is not Billy. My name is William.” The crowd, enamored with the fancy name change, erupted with chants of “William!”, to which Corgan replied, “My mother thanks you, in Heaven.”

    While I will agree, billy has become a much bigger douche over the last few years.. I think he was just being sarcastic/ironic in this moment. He still is a douche tho..

    Some people can't separate the art from the artist. If I didn't separate the two I would miss out on a lot of great music, movies, etc. Howard related because he's obviously a douchebag.

    Yes, 'Teargarden by Kaleideyscope' is this generation's Sgt. Peppers.

    Retard.

    Even his hardcore fans really only like 2 albums out of a good 12 or so. Cobain wins by virtue of the fact that he didn't write 200 filler bullshit songs per recording session.
