Would feel bad being critical of new songs in a thrown together charity livestream context so I'll refrain from comment

Was a bit weird it took Perry Farrell coming on right at the end for any kind of critique of America's crazy gun law situation

Jimmy & Frank's set was legitimately very enjoyable!

Read a few pages back, but Billy did talk lightly about gun control in one of the article I read before this concert

“Highland Park is such an influential and affluent community that it might just be Highland Park that finally tips this debate publicly and gets some real change going with legislation,” Corgan says. “This is a very liberal and progressive community. These issues really matter to this community, and they mattered to this community before this horrible event. I think the level of motivation here can move things in those directions and really sort of step up. Our personal friend, Mayor Nancy Rotering, was literally just testifying in Congress talking about what happened. She’s an incredible person — somebody we love and support — and she’s the sort of politician that can really bring a clear and unifying voice to what is normally a super politically divisive issue. There may be this other echo that comes out of this where Highland Park ultimately becomes the change agent for something that is obviously desperately needed.”

Billy sounding quite liberal here. I think having kids and being with chloe turned his views around. that whole alex jones thing, i think he was just trying to grab headlines. remember alex jones was pedaling that sandy hook was false flag operation.. this doesn't sound like the billy of that period.

right wing fans cry. wheres that pic of corgan wearing a mask?

Jane's Addiction was supposed to be playing Lollapalooza but had to cancel (apparently because Dave Navarro is suffering from long covid) and they saw it as an opportunity to reunite Porno For Pyros as a replacement. Jane's Addiction is recording new music between now and the tour with the pumpkins, so I'm assuming it's still happening the way it was planned.

I would like to see that photo. I went into Madame Zuzu’s in 2020 when everyone in Illinois had to wear a mask and Billy came in without one. Obviously it is his own business and he can do what he wants but I just can’t see him wearing one especially at this point where most people aren’t anyway.

Does wearing a mask long before COVID because he is germophobic and a light conspiracist make him a right-winger or liberal? Asking for a friend.

Billy talked about wearing masks on planes well before COVID because he viewed them as germ-infested vessels that would ruin his voice while touring/recording.

Wearing a mask on a plane is never a bad idea. I get sick every time I fly.

I have seen people wear masks on planes and such before Covid as well. Him wearing it then and then not in 2020 at his shop just shows the politicalization masks have become in this country. Like a symbol of what side you are on.
