View Full Version : Would you go to Billy Corgan's Funeral?

02-02-2008, 07:19 PM
I say this with all due respect and sincerety possible. It's just that today I've listened to his music for hours upon hours straight, once again, and realize how muich this person and his band means to me. I know I would certainly make the effort. Say what you must...but given to opportunity, would you?

isn't this a troll thread?

02-02-2008, 09:22 PM
what a stupid question, you pessimistic bastard

02-02-2008, 09:47 PM
Sure thing, they'd let any random fan attend his funeral.

i would be buried alive in his crypt so i may serve him in the afterlife.

smashking, skipgo and I would derail his funeral
for sure.!

I'd go if I could. For sure.

Sometimes when I hear my mom talk about how hard it was for her when Elvis died, I think that one day there will be a world where Billy Corgan won't be making new music or touring (and therefore not buying new clothes to make fun of, but simultaneously sorta kinda like), and that just makes me very very sad.

If I were a close friend or a member of his family I'd go.

But as I'm not any of that, I would just be sorta sad, and play sad SP/BC songs a lot for a while until I got over it.

I'm with I Adore Adore. As weird as it sounds, I would feel obligated to pay my respects in one way or another. I don't really know how you mourn for a persona hero you don't personally know...

I think muzzled4life is planning to kill Bill based on the success of this thread.

But hell yeah I'd go, I think it will become an open event in any case, as the former members of zwan will crash the funeral, subtly bringing people in via hearses. I expect it will get outrageous and rocking, and a mosh pit will form killing several elderly bystanders, I wouldn't miss it for the world.

what with fans yelling song requests and what-not...and then bitching about what songs they didn't play and how the ones they did play at the wake were in the same order

02-03-2008, 06:07 PM

these days i'd go to any smashing pumpkins show where billy keeps his fucking mouth shut

so yes

02-03-2008, 06:16 PM
hey oh! did you hear that billy corgan!?

02-03-2008, 06:23 PM
Rockin' Cherub for the win.

That's one of the reasons I think these new Euro dates are close to the Pumpkins regaining their magic: the songs flow into one another and Billy doesn't yammer so much like somebody's dad. HE'S A ROCK-GOD AND HE NEEDS TO START (RE)ACTING LIKE IT!!!1!

02-03-2008, 06:24 PM
are you down with the mighty sp?

02-03-2008, 06:27 PM
perhaps he's doing it all for the nookie?

Go to the funeral? Heck, I'd buy a pit ticket so I could be in the grave when the coffin gets lowered!

Corpse moshing to TEG is the most brutal thing ever!!
