Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan Laments Insecure Society
Corgan, poised to release new Pumpkins album Oceania, tells Antiquiet: "We're all insecure in our own ways, most of us. You've got a Facebook with a few hundred friends. If you do something truly radical are you ready to withstand the 40 negative comments? Most people aren't – so they're getting peer-pressured at levels they don't even realise."
As a result, he says, people are more likely not to share ideas they might have shared in the past. "It's the same thing with culture," he continues. "I'm just willing to say it, and deal with the 40 negative comments."
