One of my friends has the opputunity to speak to Billy on the phone next week, so is there anything you would ask him, as this is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity* and he doesn't want to waste it..

*possibly not once in a lifetime

1) obviously: if and when will the metro dvd come out and what will it contain
2) are there any plans for a european zwan tour
3) will the whole spun-ost consist of zwan songs
4) "billy, would you give me a SBD of 1996-04-22?" (something only i would ask..i imagine..)
5) if the feeling he gets from making music with zwan is different from making music with the pumpkins...

..not very imaginative i think.

It will be, if your friend turns into a drooling fanboy.

Just tell your friend to have a normal conversation with him. Billy's a human being, just like your friend, and unless he's speaking to Billy in an interview-type situation, he's going to kill the vibe by rattling off a list of questions.

Do you blame him?

Scenario:
Fan (shouting to Billy as he leaves gig): "Billy, when is the Metro DVD coming out?"
Billy (climbing into car): "Christmas, maybe? We'll see."
(fan rushes home, immediately posts on teh intarnet): "B0LLY SAID THE DVD IS COING OUT DECEMBER 25TH!@11!!@@!!@"

Yeah we'd already figured that dude. Billy would probably just get sick of it and hang up, and that's not what you really want to happen. he's not going to like a have a long list, just two or three good ones.

call it morbid curiosity if you will, but how'd you friend end up getting to talk to Billy on a phone? Not asking for future refrence or anything,heheheh, just wondering.

I've always wanted to ask Billy about how We Only Come Out At Night came to be. But those kind of questions are pretty dumb I suppose, especially since SP is no more. So I guess I have nothing to contribute to this thread....*backs out slowly*

The only thing I'd ask about would be the Metro DVD. If enough people keep bugging him about it, then maybe he'll realize how much fan interest there is in it. http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif

And I suppose I would also ask him about Zwan recording... I mean, that seems like a natural question. He'd probably expect that one.

I don't want to mention it incase it spoils it or anything, but it doesn't involve stalking or anything.
I thought about a Zwan European tour, but there is NO WAY that will happen until Zwan get a record deal and a record company who will foot the bill as it's incredibly expensive to do something like that and I don't think Billy wants it coming out of his pocket. I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer.

I think those are very good questions. The Metro DVD one is a must and I've always been interested in the whole songwriting aspect of music.

Of course I have tons of questions concerning the meaning of certain SP songs, but I don't think it would be smart to ask them...

Anyway, info on Zwan's debut is always welcome.

You can't go wrong asking about the metro DVD.
just make sure you come back here and tell us what he said.

Gish comes from the famous silent movie actress Lilian Gish. He's always had a thing for that time peroid. Fritz Lang was a genius.

Opeth,probably the best band in the wourld.Maybe Billy Corgan should listen to them and learn a thing or two!Although Katatonia would be more along there style.People,listen to me,cheak out Katatonia.You won't regret it.
