Default Darcy and James' sex appeal was a big selling point for the band

As far as MTV was concerned. Corgan probably knew that all along and had no problem exploiting that.

Would this guy still get laid if he wasn't a rockstar? I can't judge these things at all

implying what, exactly?
I read it as - women fuck either a guy who is extremely handsome, or famous/rich, otherwise - no luck, you won't get laid. the person itself matters jackshit, or what? post-post-punk as fuck.

I meant by looks alone would he have an easy time finding a large amount of women who would find him attractive enough to have sexual intercourse with.

If this guy comes up to you at a bar how do you respond knowing nothing prior, basically

It's not just men who benefit from being rich and famous artists. Like my profile pic is the hottest women ever because of JuJu

but okay, I stop this now. you are asking for an attractive scale based on looks alone, right?
he has a good face, so in the "top tier".

that's my favorite. you have to actually be able to come up with something like this:

I was thinking about how Thriller and Sade's Diamond Life are probably two of the biggest modern albums by black artists. I'm sure there are countless artists who cite them as inspiring or influencing them.

billy was attractive, and still is i guess, but sometimes he takes bad pictures. he is not particularly photogenic a lot of the time. but yes, his face is handsome, in his 20-30s he was definitely very handsome and dare i say 'cute'. i mean in like 93-95 after he cut his hair but before he shaved it all of he was very cherubic looking.

That's one of the weird things I wonder about. Which Rockstars are physically attractive separate from their Rockstar status

Last time I thought Billy looked respectable was around the Zwan era. The moustache actually worked for him.

James and D'Arcy were definitely the lookers.

Would have called Jimmy kinda rugged handsome, I guess. He made a mullet work for him and that's something. No question he's aged the best.

D'arcy was never super attractive

She's pretty enough but her face is a little odd idk. I feel mean saying that though, I find most everyone beautiful but D'arcy isn't in a traditional way.

She is however the coolest bassist The Pumpkins ever had

rating the bad based on looks, each at their most attractive

billy > d'arcy > james > jimmy

sorry jims.

billy is the only one who really ever gave me a girl boner but i dont know how much of that is because he was singing and also specifically trying to make teenagers love him
