Bill's right, Wound is the most underrated song on Machina.

Wrong about everything else though.

Looking forward to the Zwan remix, Spun and Djali Zwan releases, Oceania with JC on drums and Zeitgeist all in 2019!

Incredible reaction to the mixing of Solara. Denial. Fingers in ears.

When someone makes a light-hearted Homer Simpson comment and the best he can come up with is a World of Warcraft reference, intended as an insult, like it's 2004.

Also he's right about free speech, but making such a vague statement in the current climate could be easily misconstrued as tacit support for the alt-right, and BC is a big fan of Infowars. So either Billy supports white supremacists and thinks Sandy Hook was staged, or he's too dumb to understand how the free speech thing is being manipulated by literal nazis.

Maybe that explains why he loves the 1930's so fucking much.

Free speech isn't being manipulated by nazis, though. They're practicing it, just as they always have.

The problem is the assertion of tacit idealogical support anywhere there is a view expressed counter to the liberal narrative.

E.g, Person A thinks there are problems with immigration, so person A is a racist.

The manipulation is them crying about the dangers of restricting free speech when they get de-platformed for saying thinly-veiled racist shit.

Billy’s mate Alex Jones, friend of racist thug Gavin McInnes, has been calling the parents of murdered children liars and actors for 6 years. Free speech doesn’t entitle a person to a platform, and it doesn’t remove the consequences if they say shitty things, or engage in a politically motivated campaign to spread misinformation for personal profit. De-platforming isn’t an attack on free speech.

And it’s funny how free speech is important for the right until they discover their political opponents have a history of making offensive jokes.

That said, I'm grateful it hasn't been an issue past the first few shows this tour. One of the guards in Boston straight up asked me: Are you recording the show? I nodded my head and before I could even finish my answer he said: Yeah yeah, you're fine.

I am genuinely laughing at his unhelpful, and at times sneering answers.

I wish someone would shred him nowadays.

He really thinks that he belobgs to the greatest like lennon dylan or bowie. In reality he is a rocker who has sold 40 mio cds in alternative music. Not bad- but obviously there are many more artists who got more success.

I get mad when reading his anwers- what an insecure arrogant assfu ker

He is / was one of my favourite musical artists in the world. But even I know he's not a Dylan or Lennon in terms of cultural scale.

I know u know- but bill thinks that he belongs up there with them.
Was he successful in the last 18 years??? No- actually he has lost lots of fanlotsd occasional sp listeners due to his lack of writing good songs, bashing hisfans and musicians and fucking bad production.

He said he could write sd 2 easily. Blabla- besides that noone wants that today- he couldnt- because he isnt the same desperate guy who put all his heart and energy into hismusic.

He is in a fucking noman/s land musically. He got to find a niche where peoplelisten again.

Once huge sp fans feel embarrassed when they listen to solara. Wheres the great guitar interplay??? 3 guitarists- wtf- easy formula- hummer, rocket, mayonaise, porcelina- great interplay- that should be on thenew album- but its gonna be three guitars playin the same powerchords for sure.
My hopes for thenewalbum are so minimal

When he was asked if it bothered him that they were not inducted into the HOF, he said something along the lines of "there are a lot of great bands".

In my mind, he probably things his music should be as culturally significant as those others, but he knows it isn't.

It’s crystal fucking clear a lot of the great ideas and lyrics around Mellon Collie were a fluke or the product of talented people working around the band.

It’s hard to imagine Billy Corgan nowadays understands the literary references or connection he made with his 90’s audience.
