Billy Corgan Sees Bright Future for Current Smashing Pumpkins

(Banana 101.5) Billy Corgan and his current Smashing Pumpkins explain why they only feel the need to play certain older songs and why they won't "sell out" like other band's from the 90′s have.

For several years The Smashing Pumpkins have baffled fans and outsiders alike through moves like unexpected lineup changes and their reticence to play more than a few classic tunes at concerts.

In the band's recent backstage sitdown at London's O2 Academy, Billy Corgan and crew addressed many of those topics. Corgan's thoughts on the current version of the band seemed to point to what was missing in previous incarnations: "I think this particular lineup of the band is very good for who we need to be today which is nimble, quick, very diverse. We play a progressive style, we're very consistent, we get a long very well, we like working together, we have common musical goals and I think we have a very bright future." more on this story
