Unhappy goodnight sweet prince... Billy Corgan 1967-2012

Former Smashing pumpkins guitarist Billy Corgan was found dead Tuesday afternoon (January 30).

TMZ reports that police found Corgan's body in a Salt Lake City, Utah, house at 1:42 p.m. He was 44 years old.

Billy Corgan was an American musician best known as the frontman for the band The Smashing Pumpkins. After forming the the band in 1989, the psychedelic alternative rock sound and Corganís ripping guitar solos gained a loyal following. Notable albums ******* Siamese Dream and the double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

With guitarist James Iha, bassist D'Arcy Wretzky and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, Corgan founded Smashing Pumpkins in 1989. The bands psychedelic alternative rock??and Corgan??s ripping guitar solos and lead vocals??soon gained a loyal following in the Chicago club scene. Smashing Pumpkins signed with Caroline Records in 1990, and their debut album, Gish, was released the following year.

Starr left Alice in Chains while touring behind Dirt in 1993. Years later, he would reveal on "Celebrity Rehab" that his reason for leaving was his growing addiction to drugs. He briefly joined former Black Sabbath singer Ray Gillen in Sun Red Sun. Their self-titled debut was released in 1995, two years after Gillen died from AIDS-related complications.

Heroin addiction sent Starr to "Celebrity Rehab," which was followed by a stint in the spin-off show "Sober House." He showed up on one episode of the following season of "Celebrity Rehab," celebrating more than six months of sobriety. He was arrested for possession by Salt Lake City police on February 18, 2011.

In 2000, following a struggle with Chamberlins heroin addiction, the Pumpkins parted ways, after which Corgan and Chamberlin founded the short-lived band Zwan. After its demise, Corgan released his solo debut, TheFutureEmbrace, in June 2005. Smashing Pumpkins reunited in 2006, with Ginger Reyes on bass and Jeff Schroeder on guitar replacing Wretzky and Iha. The band played its first show in May 2007 and released Zeitgeist later that summer.
which was certified platinum nine times in the United States.

Billy's dad told TMZ his son's death is "a terrible shock and tragedy."

pretty lame. there are two paragraphs left in from the cut and paste from Mike Starr's obit.

I mean, if you can't write a convincing fake obit and you have to use another one as a template, at least make sure you delete all the key names and shit like that. Or you just come off as sloppy

this thread was realistic enough to remind me how sad it would be if this actually were to happen.

I prefer Alan Wu's obituary:

Billy Corgan was a bad, awful, corrupt, debased, debauched, decaying, declining, degenerate, degraded, depraved, dissolute, effete, evil, gone bad, immoral, moribund, overripe, wanton, wicked man. His stupid and short little life wasn't nothing but sodomy, fornication, illegal drug addictions, and he is a sinner.

Billy Corgan was a terrible man.

He robbed banks, stole cars, and was addicted to heroin.

He sold cocaine and barbituates, went to prison, and lived on the streets because he spent all his money on drugs. He was an alchoholic, and he was extremely low-class, basically had a horrible personality.

He had slept with 5,500 GAY men.

He smoked too much marijuana.

The stupid faggot lead a horrible life. It wasn't really anything but sodomy, fornication, being addicted to drugs, shoplifting, and racism.

...He was immoral.

...and he liked to steal things from museums.

...he liked to fornicate with gay men.

...he raped people.

...he was addicted to heroin, barbituates, cocaine, LSD, and morphine.

...he was often arrested for drug possesion.

...he organized a shooting at McDonalds.

Everybody acts like he was so great, but in reality he wasn't nothing but some drug addicted loser. He was a disgusting man and was terrible.

i like how it mentions that he was a racist which is ironic considering the homophobia of the author
