Does anyone here own the Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie 4xLP box set? Like Los Suenos it came out years after the original release date. And has a retrospective booklet of photographs and extensive notes on every single song, written by Billy Corgan. It's hilarious and tragic in how absolutely petty it is. Every song's notes is a diss from Corgan to his other bandmates for how little they were contributing, how he had to push them, pick D'Arcy up off the floor, drag them to the studio, how unenthusiastic and uncreative they all were except him of course. Sure thing, dude.
well, not surprised. There are things that never change. Anyway, he talks a lot about those things in endless interviews. For me is just annoying, that these guys after years and years don't change they "us against the world kind of shit" and the need they have to put themselves in a pedestal. It's like, dude, you don't need validation through your art. Said that I understand them, were years and years nonstop putting everything in their art, at some point your personal life is gonna suffer. But well, at least you can see some honesty, even if there is badblood involved. And the band themselves have their narrative and fans have another and that's ok in the end.
