Similarly, Old Man Canyon is bringing some freshness with their throwback sound.

If you like the Smashing Pumpkins, then you will really dig this band!

It's moody and melodic!

We LOVE it!

Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan Stars In Furniture Commercial…For A Good Cause!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteWrestlingFunny

And in the most random news of the whole day…

Billy Corgan, lead singer of the Smashing Pumpkins, doesn't normally live his life in the spotlight.

But that didn't stop him from filming a commercial for Chicago furniture giant, Walter E. Smithe.

What's extra random about this is that Billy owns a wrestling company Resistance Pro and got to use his wrestlers in the commercial!

He did the ad in exchange for a $50,000 donation to Chicago's largest no-kill shelter, PAWS.

He said:

"I can honestly say that if it had been anybody else in the country outside of Chicago… I probably wouldn’t have done it."

He's from Chicago and must really love his town!

Check out the video (above) to see a pretty funny commercial starring Billy Corgan!

Eric Dane And Rebecca Gayheart Are Taking Billy Corgan To Court!

Eric Dane and his wife, Rebecca Gayheart, are furious with their El Lay neighbor Billy Corgan because one of the Smashing Pumpkins' trees smashed right through their roof.

Ouchie!

The incident in question happened last fall and thankfully, no one was hurt. However, the lawsuit charges that the rock star essentially put their entire family in jeopardy by failing to remove eucalyptus trees on his property that were a known risk.

Corgan, on the other hand, has called the accusations

We don't know WHAT Thom Yorke did to smash Billy Corgan's pumpkins…

But the Smashing Pumpkins frontman is SO pissed about the 'valuation' system in modern music, that he recently mentioned he would gladly jettison a steaming stream of pee all over Radiohead!

Rush Flies Their Clockwork Angels On Tour

Filed under: Music MinuteEtc.

rush-2012-tour-clockwork-angels-1.jpg

One of the MOST influential trippy-rock bands of the Twentieth Century will accompany the release of Clockwork Angels - their first studio album in five years - with a North American Fall/Winter Tour!

Rush is known for philosophical lyrics and their penchant for all things science fiction and fantasy, AND they were one of the first bands to heavily use synthesizers in their sound.

Many bands venerate the canadian trio, including Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, and Primus, and we have always LOVED ourselves a rush of Rush!!

Their 2012 tour blasts off on Sept 7th in Manchester, N.H. and will conclude in Houston.

What a rare performance to see!

For a full listing of tour dates, head down south …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
