Billy Corgan buys a piece of the Gold Coast

Ten months after selling his Victorian painted lady mansion in Lake View for $1 million, former Smashing Pumpkins lead singer and chief songwriter Billy Corgan has paid $2.95 million for a recently renovated, historic six-room condominium on the Gold Coast.

After disbanding Zwan, Corgan formed a new group, the Smashing Pumpkins, which was set to play the forthcoming Coachella festival. However, sources at Corgan's label Reprise Records have confirmed that Corgan has unilaterally "backed out" of appearing at Coachella.

Through his tour manager, Corgan declined to comment on Coachella or the purchase of the two-bedroom condo. His tour manager confirmed that the singer-songwriter recently has been staying at the Arizona condo while rehearsing for the Smashing Pumpkins' 2006 tour, but said the Chicago-area native ultimately intends to lease the condo in a 110-year-old building to someone else. The unit has an oak-paneled living room, reception room, balcony framed by granite columns, four fireplaces, walnut parquet floors and a large terrace.

Corgan has shown an affinity for vintage properties. After moving out of the more than 100-year-old Lake View home at 3448 N. Greenview Ave., which he owned from 1993 to 2001, Corgan temporarily stayed in a penthouse in the Haberdasher Square loft development, 728 W. Jackson Blvd., a former manufacturing building that dates to 1926. And in 2000, the Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois awarded Corgan its President's Award for his commitment to historic preservation.

Since Corgan sold his Lake View home, one Smashing Pumpkins Web site reported that he has been living in Italy, but in interviews he has declined any comment on his permanent residence.

Singer Courtney Love, whom Corgan dated many years ago, just sold her loft in downtown Manhattan for $3 million after buying it for $2.6 million in January 2001, according to the New York Post. The loft is in the same building where rocker Lenny Kravitz just listed his own, five-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot, multilevel loft for $16 million, after buying the space unfinished in October 2000 for $8 million, the Post reported.

Love also recently listed her almost 3,700-square-foot Spanish-style house on Los Angeles' Westside -- which she bought last June for $3 million -- for about the same price, according to the Los Angeles Times. Love reportedly is looking for another house in the area because her five-bedroom house, which was built in the 1920s, is too small.

Ironically, Love told the Times last year that she sold a four-bedroom, 4,700-square-foot French country-style house on almost 2 acres in the Hollywood Hills -- which she had purchased from Ellen DeGeneres in 1997 for about $3 million -- because she was planning to spend more time in New York and actually wanted something smaller in L.A. She sold the Hollywood Hills home for $3.995 million in March 2001 to British businessman Mike Walley. Love's former Hollywood Hills house made the news in November 2001, after Paul McCartney's fellow Beatle George Harrison died. After Harrison's representatives gave a bogus L.A. address on his death certificate, the county's district attorney revealed in February that Harrison actually had died at Walley's house.

Rocker Tom Petty has paid close to $2.5 million for a three-bedroom oceanfront home in Malibu, Calif., according to the Los Angeles Times. Built in 1974, the house has three fireplaces, Malibu tiles and a courtyard with a fountain, the paper reported ... Fred Durst, frontman for the rock group Limp Bizkit, has sold a house he never moved into in Bel Air, Calif., for $3.7 million because it had "vibes that were not quite correct for him," according to the Los Angeles Times. Last fall, Durst bought the four-bedroom, 6,600-square-foot house, which was once owned by the Doors' Robbie Krieger and has a carving of the Doors playing on one wall, for just under $4 million, the paper reported. Durst recently bought a house with a sound studio in L.A.'s Hollywood Hills, and has listed that home for $1.4 million, the Times reported

WAIT. who the FUCK edited this article

Corganist 08-28-2006 02:31 AM

Personally, I've never understood the whole fascination with some SP fans about what Billy's house looks like. It seems nothing good ever comes out of people having this sort of info.

My gut reaction though is that its probably not a big deal to show what the outside of the house looks like, as it would take a lot more knowledge than that for a person to actually find the place. And it doesn't exactly look like the sort of neighborhood where strange people could lurk around for long without arousing some suspicion from the residents anyway. Nevertheless, if it were my call I probably wouldn't have posted them. At the very least it is kinda of a crappy thing to do.

wHATcOLOR 08-28-2006 02:59 AM

they've been posted before -- not that that changes anything you say corganist

Ol' Couch Ass 08-28-2006 03:32 AM

At this point Billy would probably be happy if random fans smashed pumpkins on his doorstep or tried to have sex on his front porch. At least then he'd know that somebody out there still cared that he was a rock star once.

RenewRevive 08-28-2006 03:37 AM

Indeed. Some traumatic experiences might be needed to get the best out of his songwriting.

Izzle 08-28-2006 04:45 AM

whilst i do believe that billy lives in that house, do you actually have any evidence of it?
