Default When Billy Goes...

And by "goes" I mean die. Will you cry? Cards on the table... I will.

Be honest.

I honestly don't know, but probably. From my current perspective I feel like the Billy I actually really respected, admired, & loved as an artist has been dead & gone for a REALLY long time, but even so, i guess deep down since i know this is technically the same human being who was once that artist, it would sting somewhat

I'll be sad. I'll probably cry a bit and listen to Pisces for a whole week obsessively.

The big question is: will his records sell? Could you even tell?

i feel like in the last... *checks notes* ...18 years(!!) i've had no choice but to come accept the reality that the bill that had such a large impact on my life is long gone. and so i'll probably get down a bit and feel wistful, but i don't think it'd get me to the point of tears.

now, if he were producing at this level today, it would surely have a bigger impact on me. and to be clear, i don't particularly even care about this artist, but i feel like it's a real good level of quality at this point in their career

Question

Reaction to his early death may depend on the reason:

Would it be a brain tumor, a wrestling accident, an overdose of vitamined pills, an exploding mineral water bottle...?

Billy will be like 90 when he dies, and he'll probably program a robot/hologram of himself to continue performing and playing live, so he'll likely live on forever.

I'm honestly not sure.

I've never read news of a celebrity death whose work I was majorly into. Hell, I've never even had family I was close to die yet. No idea how I'd react to either tbh

Yes I'll cry. Even though I know full well he is an imperfect person. But hey, we all are. I will never forget the lasting impact his words and music and emotions have had on me.

Hell no, I wouldn't cry. I'd be like "ahhh shitttttttt man, that fucking sucks" and I'd feel sad for a few minutes and maybe think about SP and their legacy throughout the day in a reflective way, but cry? No way in hell.

I’ll feel quite sad if he goes without ever really turning it around. He still could. I wouldn’t cry, that’s silly. Anyone who cries over celebrity deaths needs their head examining. Go and buy a princess Diana commemorative plate.

On the other hand it’ll be a cause for much joy and celebration as his estate will seek to capitalise on his death by releasing anything and everything they can. Finally, the we’ll get to hear the best album he ever made - Chicago Songs.

Crying cause a rock-star who you don't even know dies? Come on man, that's mentally ill.

Amen. Well said.

I wouldn't count on him turning it around. I don't think there's ever been a musician who's put out 18 years of crap only to put out something great again in their 50's. Let's face it friends, it's over for Corgan.
