How can you guys poke fun at this? I enjoy a little corgan ribbing as much as the next guy but this is beyond billy saying something silly for us to mock. How would you feel if your father was caught in a position like this and the whole town talked about you and made jokes behind your back? Only, in this case, it's the entire country who knows about it. You guys should really not turn this thread into a laugh fest, it's not the right thing at all.

No, I saw a youtube-clip. An old one. I think it was from when Mellon Collie came out.

As far as how many William Corgans can possibly live in Tampa, that's a valid point. I had no idea that he was living there, but if it's common knowledge that Billy Sr. lives in Tampa, it's probably the same guy. He had Billy at 20? Yikes.

look at pix of billy a few years ago and now he looks like he's aged a decade (well maybe not a decade) but he has aged. I mean in the yellow room interview he still looks quite young and that was only two years ago, maybe the corgans just don't age that well..... and as for looking like shit, drugs will do that to you

Martha Lutz and Billy Corgan, Sr., were high school dropouts; they had met at a school dance where Billy Sr., a guitarist by profession, was performing. The couple marry after getting knocked up with Billy, but it doesn’t last;

So yes Billys dad was really young when Billy was born.

I think this pic gives it much more validity. Its pretty close to a sure shot that its definitly him. Theres way too many similarities. The "real" picture of him on the right, he is in mid sentence. When your mouth is open in mid sentence, it will change the shape of your nose in photos, especially if the lighting isnt the best (which it is not in this case).

The jaw line, the way the face sags around the jaw, the ear height and shape. hairline. everything. too close to say its not him.

yeah this type of thing doesn't bother me too much.

but if i had my way, admins/mods would do nothing aside from banning people who flood the board. rules suck.


the title change doesn't bother me so much as this thread getting closed briefly last night (though i guess it doesn't matter since it was reopened). But it's like that song a day thread getting closed, that was just because it annoyed him. People strayed off topic a lot, but always went right back to talking about the pumpkins, which i thought was what this board was supposed to be about. My theory is that all the mods besides corganist hate the pumpkins now and also hate everyone (or most everyone) who post on the sp board, and they let their personal feelings dictate how they moderate the board. A mod should be impartial and just enforce the rules.
i mean, i'm all for having them come on here and tell us all to fuck off if they feel like it, but censoring a topic that people want to talk about, that's about the band or the members of the band, is going overboard.

robert, there aren't rules anywhere that say you shouldn't make these kind of jokes, but it's certainly not a bad thing to have compassion for people. I think britney is a trainwreck, but i don't make jokes even about her. Some people prefer to draw the line at stuff like that.

I have compassion.

In the only post I've written in this thread I only made a joke about how "bad" Zeitgeist is (even though I listen to it pretty often and actually like it a lot... well at least the first 5 tracks) and related it to the topic of this thread. I didn't make fun of Billy Dale directly, just his drug use, which is something people joke about all the time, especially on the internet.

I respect him as the father of a good musician and a pretty good musician himself (from what I've seen of his blues stuff). I don't respect his drug use, however.

If he were dead, I wouldn't even post in the thread.

Seeing as he's just got himself in jail, he's just like my alcoholic brother, who I make fun of frequently for his addiction and for ending up in jail more times than I can remember, or count on both hands.

I also said in my original post that it sucks that it seems like shit is hitting the fan with Billy's "family" since the Pumpkins came back (Jimmy's heart, Billy Dale's heroin). So I definitely feel for the guy.




All's I'm sayin' is I draw the line a little higher because I have experienced similar stuff. But I do have compassion.

complaints about mods aside, why do you think no one has caught onto the fact that billy's dad was arrested? it doesn't mention it in the article, but i guess it wasn't obvious to the people reporting it because really, why would it be? By now though, I would've thought a music news site would've heard about it. Usually the media jumps all over an opportunity like this one.

no one cares about Billy plus most music web sites would draw the line at this. I really don't see Pitchfork running this kind of gossip article.

Never was this thread meant to be closed. I changed the title because this isn't definitely his father (and we're claiming it is, which I didn't believe at first but do now).

Regarding your other thread, for three pages people were talking about rep. It was a plus-one thread which has always been against Andrew's policies.

This board is one of the least-moderated music sites around.
