Smashing Pumpkins frontman/guitarist and alt rock antihero Billy Corgan is one of the most well-spoken rockers on the planet.
We love when he is on Howard Stern, since he is so candid and chatty.
Well, ARTISTdirect.com nabbed some time with the legend, and he spoke about the set list for the Oceania tour (he wanted to balance it, and tell a narrative story); the inspiration behind "The Orb" that is part of the stage show; and what inspired the song "Oceania."
And there's a whole lot more too…
We can't do any of it justice, since Corgan is so well-spoken and carefully details all of his answers, and truly thinks about it as he answers it.
