New concept for a gofundme:

Hi! We’re raising money to fund a high-society guitar heist to re-steal the gish strat back from bill

Also is it just me or has Billy described virtually every event in his life since the adore era as “coming full circle?”

Seriously Google “full circle” and “Billy Corgan.” It’s like his favorite pet phrase.

Actual paraphrased quote from that mini-doc:
"He called me and said they had my strat and they didn't want anything for it, which was great."

Corgo is either "on the spectrum" or has seriously lost all traces of empathy & whatever else made his music good back in the day

when will Billy realize that it isn't the Gish strat that matters, it is the Gish hair, for Chamberlin too

Uhhhhhhhhhh, not sure how he found the time to record music when he was constantly saying "this time we've got all the ingredients to reproduce the greatness of the past," 24 hours a day, for over 10,000 million years, T&T

Why don't you fucking think before you speak

I chalk it up to spending 25 years of surrounding oneself with yes-men and sycophants.

So if the Gish Strat sound was the sound he always wanted, and he didn't have it after 92, does that mean Siamese Dream didn't sound the way he wanted it? Cos it didn't have that sound?

Yes he basically says that in one of the interviews that it forced him to invent a new sound.

I've always wondered why he didn't do anything with that Gish sound again.
