Smashing Pumpkin Billy Corgan Starts Chicago Wrestling Company

Filed under: Music MinuteWrestling

Billy Corgan Wrestling Company

In your daily, "Excuse me, but what did you just say??" we have Billy Corgan — the frontman from the Smashing Pumpkins — starting a wrestling company in Chicago.

Apparently Corgan has been a fan since he was a kid, and just recently decided to learn the business side of it all.

Here's what he had to say:

"Our vision is to try to grow talent. We have people who are going to work for us who are pretty well known on the indie circuit. You have to start somewhere, and part of that is creating a curiosity in the audience."

The company is called Resistance Pro, and they're looking to add more shows soon.

"We have to start in Chicago and build a name for ourselves and build enough of a reputation to take it other places. It's a serious endeavor. I want this to succeed strictly on its ideas. If I had to artificially prime the audience because of my musical life that's sad. This is going to succeed on its own ideas, not because I jumped the shark."

Interesting!

Well, regardless of what he wants to do, we wish him success. Who cares is some find it odd??

Good luck, Billy!

Billy Corgan Doesn't Seem To Like Transgenders

Filed under: Tacky & TrueCourtney Love

Billy Corgan Angry Transgender

Such a shame, too!

Musically speaking, the Smashing Pumpkins singer is a genius. We love Ava Adore, Disarm, Tonight Tonight, Eye, etc..

Compassionately speaking, we've lost hope with this one.

Back in the 90s, Billy Corgan stormed out of a concert 30 minutes into it after smashing his guitar on the stage.

And of course the whole rumor of infatuation with Courtney Love thing never made sense, but what we're about to tell you is what REALLY disappoints us with Billy.

After transgendered Devi Ever complained about Billy failing to pay her for the custom bass peddle she crafted, Billy took to Facebook with a marathon of hate:

you ugly piece of sh*t…if i ever run into you, anywhere, at anytime, for as long as i live, i will knock your fucking lights out. don’t ever come near me, and if i hear even one more peep out of you in public about me, or the band, or the members of the band, i am gonna sue you for so much you’ll never be able to afford so much as to even make a f*cking guitar cable.

He also tweeted about the incident (calling her a he/she, which is considered transbashing), but then deleted them later.

Ever then responded to his rant with some heavy words of her own:

you f*cked up, you know it, so eat sh*t, shut the f*ck up and accept you’ve attacked someone who tried to HELP YOU. but addicts and self-destructive people like you who HATE THEMSELVES must turn their hate out. if this is what you have to do to not kill your unhappy self, well then i’d say it was a wise decision. beyond that, you are f*cking lame, dumb, and so so ugly.

ME-OWW!

Ever later lamented her mirroring retaliation by YouTubing:

instead of being a whiny bitch on [the Smashing Pumpkins message boards] I should have gone for a hike, cooled off, then spoken with Billy privately about my disappointments with his reactions / non-reaction to my pedals over the years, but I still don’t think that excuses Billy for going as far as he did in retaliation, and I’d still greatly appreciate if Billy apologized via Twitter, and perhaps donate to a trans-rights organization

Way to be the bigger person, girl!

But back to Billy, dayum son! Why are you so pissed?

Hmm, maybe it has to do with his 2005 incident. He wrote a LiveJournal entry about almost screwing a transgendered until he found out what was under the panties! When word got around, he said he physically threatened to break both her arms and legs if she said another word of it.

Ummm, yeah…. that could be the reason. But it's definitely not an excuse!

Billy Corgan's Brother Mugged And Attacked Over iPod In Chicago!

Oh, yuck! This is just terrible!

Billy Corgan's brother, Jesse Anderson, was reportedly mugged Thursday on Chicago's CTA Red Line, and when he attempted to get his stolen iPod back from one of the thieves, he was punched in the face!

According to Andersen, who suffers from cerebral palsy and Tourette syndrome, a young woman with a group of four males "sat down beside him and snatched his music player."

He continues:

"I thought, you know, she just wanted to see my iPod but, you know, she wouldn't give it back, so I said, 'give it back to me, give it back to me.'"

When he further pursued the group, he was struck by one of the men in the face.

Check out news footage of the crime (above)!

The Smashing Pumpkins frontman took to Twitter to discuss the HOriffic event, and wrote:

my little brother Jesse was attacked and robbed this morning by 3 men. he's ok, but if you want to send him some love

My brother Jesse just finished an interview with a 2nd tv station about being mugged. The bad guys picked the wrong kid to fuck with!

My brother Jesse asked me to please pass on to everyone that he appreciates the tremendous show of support he has gotten today

Ugh - just despicable!

Seriously - all of that over an effing iPod?! What is wrong with people?

We sincerely hope that Jesse is recovering all right, and the responsible parties are caught, and dealt with accordingly!

Feel better!

Smashing Pumpkins Reissuing Classic Albums

Filed under: Music Minute

Billy Corgan for sale

A.K.A. every album they've already released! Ha!

The popular 90's alternative-rock band Smashing Pumpkins is kicking off a three-year program this fall by releasing expanded versions of their breakthrough album Siamese Dream, followed by Gish, and Pisces Iscariot.

Sound familiar? Go check your CD collection because you probably already have them, BUT in case you missed the grunge era, this is a great chance to catch up on your rock history!

The band's frontman and only original member, Billy Corgan, made the announcement with EMI Music on Tuesday.

In what he calls a "groundbreaking deal", Corgan says the band will have full control of the unreleased materials, explaining:

"What makes the deal with EMI groundbreaking is the band has secured the right to all unreleased materials and will be in charge of any additional releases based on our discretion. In essence, the band has the keys to the warehouse and can release whatever we want, when we want it."

Good for them! It's nice to see the musicians holding the power instead of the record company.

Next year, Corgan will reissue the 1995 double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the 5-disc boxed set The Aeroplane Flies High, and Adore.

Could this be the beginning of the return of 90's rock? Will Alanis Morissette follow, with Chumbawumba not far behind? Ha!

Are U excited to hear that the Smashing Pumpkins will reissue the old albums?

New Smashing Pumpkins Bassist Was Girl On The Cover Of Siamese Dream!

Filed under: Music MinuteTwitter

smashing-pumpkins-bassist-siamese-dream-cover.jpg

Whoa! What a crazy coincidence!

Billy Corgan has revealed that the new Smashing Pumpkins bassist, Nicole Fiorentino, was one of the girls on the cover of their 1993 album Siamese Dream!

In fact, Billy himself didn't even know until after she had joined the group.

He tweeted:

Just found out the weirdest news: our bass player Nicole (@xocoleyf) just admitted she is one of the girls on the cover of Siamese Dream

She said she didn't want us to know because she thought maybe we wouldn't let her be in the band

Ha! That's crazy!

Billy didn't say which one she was, but we're thinking the girl on the right.

What do U think??
