This and “My best work is just sitting in a can somewhere” make me want to punch Billy in the face.

Seriously, blaming fans/the public for abandoning Teargarden because we didn't, I don't know, vote Freak to Number 1 on TRL or something is just asinine.

There was plenty of positivity when the original plan of Teargarden was first announced. 44 songs, all for free, new song every 2-3 weeks, cool limited edition boxset for the collectors. Billy's got no-one to blame but him self for the steady decline in interest in Teargarden.

I mean, when you make people wait for 2-3 months for “My strongest work since Mellon Collie" but instead release such hits as Owata or Spangled, Suprise Suprise, there is some fan negativity on the internet. What a Shock.

Sorry, 2011 rant over.

Question

But will Corgan have the strength to hit us with all the recordings he has done since 2000, if even his best possible reunited band fails nowadays in selling their actual releases at a commercial successful existance?

Well, maybe as a less riskfull digital download option...

From reading Billy's musings, I get the feeling that he doesn't enjoy creating music anymore. He's always trying to "rekindle" something, get his "groove" back or other such euphemisms.

The man has a huge audience for his music and I think he takes for granted what a privilege that is.

Corgan will end his musical career with his 60th birthday, having then enough of the rockstar life.

And may start it again a few years later by touring, having to raise money for his declining NWA..
