Billy Corgan discussed The Smashing Pumpkins’ future in a new interview with the Chicago Tribune.
“I’m not willing to wait around 15 to 20 years to have somebody go, ‘Hey, that album that you made is really good.’ And then sell it to the 7,000 people that are still paying attention.”
“When this process is over, I’m either going to bail on this ship for good, like ‘I’m done,’ or I’m going to have a new ship to sail on,” Corgan said, adding that at a time when everyone walks around looking at phones, he wonders: “How do you reach through the fog as an artist? How do you punch your way back through? How do you say, ‘I still matter’? How do you say, ‘How does one of my contemporaries get treated like a contemporary artist, and how do I get treated like I’m supposed to play “Siamese Dream” for the rest of my life?’ At some point you’ve got to fight this fight or go away.”
