Question What question do you have for Billy?

Corrine Lovenutz is going to be collecting questions from SP's socials for a Q&A. Let's use this opportunity to avoid getting lost in that shuffle, because we all know she prowls around here. What kind of burning questions do you have?

Did you stop worrying good music when you lost your hair?

Why didn't you sing 1979?

This is unfair because he wrote a few great batches of songs after succumbing to a life of baldness

It was the societal reaction to his new form that atrophied his talents and took approx a decade to fully set in (thefutureembrace)

If I were to go with an actual question, it would be this. What is his reasoning for releasing the archive projects exclusively on vinyl? Honestly, part of my thinks he's afraid that the numbers for his archival material would be higher than some of his new material.

it was also infamously asked by Stephan Oldsal of Placebo back in '96 - even then, Hero Billy's response was suspect!

You really think SP media people are going to field questions from the website be hates? The Bald Lord probably specifically instructed her not to accept any questions from Netphoria.

Your best bet is to ask them on Reddit, TikTok, and Instagram.

And the questions probably have to be carefully worded so that he can't possibly interpret them as attacks.

Like, if you were to ask him what motivated him to change his vocal style from Zwan onward without offering a negative assessment of his current vocal style, he would probably still go "are you trying to say I can't sing like I used to? Because I can sing like I used to. I could make old Pumpkins music. I just don't want to. You're a Siamese Zombie stuck in the past. Blocked."

I think it's worse than that. He's afraid that the numbers for his archival material will be less, because it's taken far too long and no one cares any more.

Of course not. This is my sense of humor. Aren't you laughing?

I do think Corrine will see this thread, though. Hi Corrine! Can you hook me up with some ZuZu tea?

by this point i'm not entirely sure he wouldn't view even, say, Monuments as "the pass"

"hey Bill how was it recording w/ Tommy Lee?"

"What like a hundred years ago? don't remember. #blocked"

I'd probably ask this:

Could we have kippers for breakfast?
Mummy dear, Mummy dear?
They gotta have 'em in Texas
'Cause everyone's a millionaire
I'm a winner, I'm a sinner
Do you want my autograph?
I'm a loser, what a joker
I'm playing my jokes upon you
While there's nothing better to do, hey!

Why don’t you let Jimmy and James contribute tracks to a new Pumpkins record?
Get in a room and jam with them?
Given James and Jimmy’s solo records clearly showed they contributed massively to SP1.0.

I literally asked him this on an early IG q&a. I said that I loved the sighing singing he used to do. And he replied "Used to do? Before the alien took over this body?"

If you hate your 90's work other than Adore that much, isn't the artistically right choice to stop playing those songs live?

Is The Frog’s ‘Hot Coq Annie’ about Billy’s liaison with a lizard shapeshifter?

Straight guy so shook by trans dick he becomes a cryptozoologist.
