Default bill corgan lashing out at devi ever

Billy Corgan
Devi Ever is a fucking asshole. His/her pedals suck. He/she sucks. Never associate my name and his/hers ever again. Pig. Ugly pig.

Billy Corgan
Asking someone to build you a pedal in emulation of another pedal you like, and them sending you a piece a shit back is not creativity

Billy Corgan
And in fact he/she STOLE his/her pedal idea from another Portalnd pedal maker, which is far superior. Ugliness masking as blind ambition

why's a "rockstar" gotta make personal attacks like that though? instead of staying above the fray, etc.

yikes. just fucking yikes. what is he, 12? holy fucking cow.

i mean, she bit the bullet too soon and I believe she assumed he wasn't using the pedal, and went on a really unnecessary tirade about it, but what a classless, childish response from corgos.

i feel like 0.00001% of people know about guitar pedals or care about guitar pedals. going on twitter and attacking someone personally on their appearance takes some weird little dispute most people would never know about or care about and makes it public

I totally thought this was a goof, and a funny one at that.


But then I went to Twitter.


Wow.

I know I don't know the whole story but it seems like Devi Ever put way too much time and money into Corgan. Unless he sought him/her out and begged for him/her to make a pedal...I think he/she over did it.

and what's with his using the his/her angle? almost like he's going at every angle he can to insult her? maybe he is homophobic after all?

him and monte are two fucking peas in a pod!!

which btw, this means he read the monte is a homo basher thread.. so now corgan is aware of monte's gay hating. will he still back him up? only time will tell!!

yeah they had a good thing going there, and corgan seemed genuinely excited about the silver rose.. and i still wonder if he used it on oceania.

either way.. her pedals were good enough for nels cline and thurston moore, so fuck corgan. I for one own the shoegazer and it RULES. I get compliments on my fuzz tone at every gig i play, so it's a keeper fo sho.

maybe he doesn't like your pedals and didn't like you crying about it on the internet?

Is there a problem with the quality of the pedal or the pedal was ripped off from someone else?

I must have missed the controversy, the Silver Rose looked pretty good in the video.

Why is he so pissed about this?

to be fair though.. put yourself in this assholes shoes. he goes on twitter and speaks positively about how excited he is for the development of this new devi ever pedal.. this goes on for a bit, etc etc, effectively bringing some good/free advertising to her business. then he gos on netpho and reads the following:

Here's my three-strikes-he's out for Billy and the pedals.

1) I gave him a Shoe Gazer and Rocket a long time ago, and when I met him in person and mentioned the Shoe Gazer, he said something along the lines of "It's a great fuzz, but you can't use that live... you know?" ... No, I don't know Billy. Tell me why you're too afraid to do anything interesting with your live sound anymore. Oh right, everything has to be pristine and perfect these days or vintage and unprogressive... just like you.

2) The Rocket diss in the "Stompland" video. The Rocket was not designed to emulate the sound from Rocket. The pedal is a nod to the song, and a love letter of sorts to Siamese Dream... but anyone who's actually spent good time with it knows that it goes WAY beyond that... so his obvious misunderstanding (through undoubted little use) of the pedal was kind of annoying. What made it pretty fucking infuriating though was that I was in the middle of developing the pedal which I -thought- I was working with him on (the Silver Rose) to make a fuzz that would fit his "modern yet vintage" fuzz needs.... and to have him publicly (metaphorically and literally) toss the Rocket aside was a real shit move in relation... to well EVERYTHING going on that point. Fortunately no one gives much a shit about Billy anymore in regards to such things, so any business lost because of his off hand comment isn't business I'm worried about. It was just a dick move. I like what a good friend of mine in the industry said "When it comes to fuzz, you're bigger than Billy Corgan... fuck him."

It's true... I'm selling Silver Roses like crazy... not because of anything Billy did... but because people like what I do, and could give two shits at the end of the day who uses my pedals... but still... I don't do well with idiots and assholes, and Billy fits the bill (lol) of both these days.

3) The Silver Rose. I spent well over three grand developing the Rose for that ungrateful asshole. I listened to what he wanted, developed something that was far beyond what my business usually does, went through a costly research and development process, and ultimately sent him around $1k worth of gear on top of all the R&D costs during the SR time... and what came of his use, or thanks, or anything for that time spent?

Nothing. The guy didn't say shit in response to all that hard work. As a matter of fact, just for shits, I decided to toss the name of a fellow pedal builder his way who was building a pedal he might like, just as a last... we'll see what happens. So what happens? The fucker writes back the next day saying he'd love one of those!

lol

The guy has the attention span of a carrot.

Seriously though. I'm unapologetic in any of this, and glad to finally just cut ties with the guy. He is definitely the epitome of the fallen hero story that seems to eventually play out to anyone and at least some of their heroes over time.

So yeah... this is the pedal side of things... but beyond that, once again... there is so much about Billy Corgan beyond the music and gear that I just don't vibe with... actually ALL OF IT.... and the music isn't there anymore... so fuck him.
I'd be a little irritated too.. but calling someone an ugly pig is insanely immature. fuck him.
