Default Has Billy given an update on his book lately?

I'm not on Instagram and haven't been following his posts aside from the ones that are posted here. Has there been any word on when this thing is supposed to drop?

It's probably the only thing left that I'm anticipating. Billy's always been an interesting writer when it comes to his life. There hasn't been any bio's about Smashing Pumpkins, so it would be cool to get a first hand take.

I'm reading the Beastie Boys book right now and it's absolutely fantastic. I'm hoping Billy is taking a route like that (a definitive history of the band) seeing as how he doesn't wanna get into the personal stuff and naming names and all of that

If you think Billy has anything more than a vague outline and maybe 20 shittily written pages of his book in the can, I've got a monorail system you might be interested in.

Apparently he's written over 100,000 pages.

originally single spaced, now double spaced at the request of the fan editor from sad machines that needs space to leave notes.

Corgan has to rewrite hundreds of pages mentioning James Iha.
Or have to wait til the next mostly-original-band breakup.

Mind-Body-Soul integration is the primary focus of this site, and how it can best manifest in our daily life. We will strive to celebrate the brilliant Spirit in each individual and work collectively to glorify that which is Holy in each and every one of us. To honor and recognize that support for another is also support for ourselves. To kindle the flame in every heart humbly as gratitude for our opportunity here to make a subtle yet important difference. It is that simple.

He said in an interview that he'll release the book page by page freely on the internet every two/three weeks. It's goint to be ground breaking.

prediction of an early sentence in Bill's memoir "and thus, the four troubadoors emarked on a journey that would not only enclose them inside the mania of their own pysches, but also trap them 'neath the stars of a love deferred"

D'arcy's version: "We set off on tour and Billy was screaming at us within 12 hours."

This would be awesome. I'm sure could she land a nice chunk of change for it too.

Brett, make it happen!

You just asked for an update? Fuck, great job. Now he's not writing it anymore. You just ruined it for the rest of us.

lol all kidding aside, the original question remains unanswered. Is the book something that's still on the radar, or has he simply stopped talking about it? Wasn't it actually due out years ago?

Can't keep up anymore

Why even bother posting something like this?

What purpose or good does that serve? It only makes you look like the low-IQ dullard that you've already exposed yourself to be many, many times before.

Dullard is so 2000 and late. You gotta use the term Dotard.

Iíve been asking that same exact question every time you post your thoughtless trash.

Go look this up on google and fuck off. Quit flooding the board with this low grade garbage.

Who will release his biography first, Billy or D'arcy?

Or will there be an unexpected book of Jimmy, telling the true story of his fatal night with Jonathan?

Will James find a few more words; to write about his life. Especially with D'arcy. And their dramatic breakup?
