Cool Does Billy Corgan still write a song everyday?

Here's an idea:

What if he put he put his songs out there just for the heck of it? Would you buy them?

I've always imagined that his daily songs (when he did that and if he still is) would sound something like the Machina demos which is one of my favorite albums.

Imagine if Corgan was putting out 10-20 albums like that a year, that could add up to big money and a ton of new fans.

He could even simultaneously offer the songs in a subscription service where you pay a monthly fee to get access to the songs.

I absolutely would buy albums that were like the Machina demos.

i just want to determine how much restraint i should exercise in telling this person to shut the fuck up.

both your guesses seem reasonable because the internet certainly is a novelty to them.

Same old ad hominem BS, it's so childish.

Anyways, Buckethead is proving that the business model I mentioned in the original post can work. I read that he released over 30 albums last year and he's aiming for the same this year. I don't know how much money he's making at it but artistically it's the coolest thing I've ever heard of.

Billy doesn't do cool and he isn't interested in stuff that will "work", even if proven. You sound like a casual fan.

That's a red herring anyways, I never mentioned what's cool, that's not a part of this discussion.

Why did he go back to making traditional albums after attempting the Teargarden project?

More ad hominem, whatever. You do that after those two huge whoppers you just tried to slip by?

Bill is obsessed with being cool, especially now that he is not
