Default Corgan feature in the latest issue of Guitar World

There's a little write-up about Oceania an a pretty good Q&A. I haven't really been keeping up with the new interviews or anything, but he seems like he's in a good place during this one. Sounds like he's actually hoping to make some new music with the Pumpkins if they get back together.

Oh and there's a new full-page picture of him. He actually looks like he's lost about 10-15 pounds.

Thought I'd mention this for any of the people who like collecting SP related magazines and what not.

Sixties Gibson Tortoise
what a great name for a guitar.

wait I have no idea about this, did they really use that material for guitar parts, tortoise shell??? hm 60ies, was that still before you weren't allowed to use it
(don't mind me, learning something new - thanks google, yes it was. I never played a guitar with real Schildpatt, didn't realize that was a thing.)

At the end the required question about the future of The SMASHING PUMPKINS:

Any more you can add on the future of the band?
Obviously, thereís plenty of healthy interest for us to play shows, but Iím much more interested in that if it includes us working again as a creative unit. Itís pretty obvious that Iíve had my best success as a rock musician with that lineup in some form, and I think it has a lot to do with when and how we came together. Whether we could recreate that magic in any form remains to be seen, but it would be nice to try.

And to be clear, we are talking about the original members, right?
Well, you never know, because everybodyís got their own lives now. Itís not like people are sitting at home waiting by the telephone. I mean, Jimmy is super-involved in tech. James is a successful producer and does his own soundtracks. Díarcy is living a very private life. Itís not as simple to say, ďOh, letís all go meet on Main Street on Tuesday.Ē I think thereís lots of other factors that also ******* children, schedules and stuff like that.

But again, speaking personally, my interest is just to be creative. Itís great to play the old songs, but itís not really a creative endeavor unless you talk about the staging and the lights. At the end of the day, youíre still doing something thatís already been done, and my heart lies in doing something that hasnít been done. So weíll see.

to be fair most press junkets are you sitting in a hotel room for a day or two while an endless parade of reporters come visit you.

its like comedy. you develop material.

I like to use that term to describe my life. It's better than saying I have no life.
