I'm remembering watching this from quite some time ago, but if I remember correctly: Billy, Garson, Arnoff and 1 of the 2 other drummers were completely bald.

At the time I just remember thinking: "ahhh fucking Corgan, now that he's bald he thinks it's a cool look to have other bald guys performing with him".

It was kinda strange though. Here were the Pumpkins this iconic band known for their youthful exuberant appearance and here they are on their new tour with a bunch of old bald dudes. Couldn't have helped the whole vibe around Adore.

It is a stupid thing to discuss. But of all the topics that have been beaten to death over SP's career I don't think I've ever seen this once mentioned.

Once Billy went completely bald he became a punchline for a lot of jokes. So I think in his mind he thought it would be edgy to have a bunch of guys as bald as he was up on stage with him. Making some kind of anti alt/rock statement.

Sounds illogical and all, but I'm strictly basing this theory on the insanity of Corgan at the time.

No. I forget the exact anecdote. But Sharon Osbourne mentioned in her book that Corgan was deadset on hiring ugly people to be around him during appearances or something stupid like that.

Billy Corgan 1998 - Bald



James Iha 1998 - Not bald



D'arcy 1998 - Not bald



Mike Garson 1998 - Bald



Kenny Aornoff 1998 - Bald



Dan Morris (balding but not clean shaven) and Stephen Hodges (not bald) 1998 - Best picture I found

Fuzzyroses is wrong.

I still can't believe Billy kicked Matt Walker outta the band for this fucking guy


They literally needed 2 other drummers with him to try and maintain the sound

that was the true beginning of the band's downfall, motherfucker

Shaving their heads off COMPLETELY? That is commitment!

The band on that tour was the best set of musicians for the sound that Billy wanted to create.
