Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is selling his Beverly Hills, CA home for $4,950,000. The home is 3,267 square feet, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
William Patrick Corgan (Billy Corgan) or as he often signs now, ‘WPC’, has always been ahead of the game with a little something extra. Recently Corgan revealed his newest project: ‘People and Their Cars.’ While both people and cars are subjects in the blog, it is not what you think. The blog consists of vintage (or sometimes antique) photographs, a collection curated by Corgan himself. With Corgan’s ventures in music, poetry and teahouses, photography seems like a natural progression. A few days after the launch, Corgan announced the “Red Border Club”, an email listing for the blog. Benefits of joining the RBC include ‘the chance to receive additional images, but to be ‘first-in-line’ for updates on new merchandise and forthcoming People And Their Cars/Hexestential books.’ No emails outside of confirmation have been sent out. Joining the RBC is also free, “with no catch, fees, or obligation to buy.” Corgan has always had a keen sense of art direction and the Pumpkins’ work has been influenced by the aesthetics of vintage photography (and other forms of visual art) over the years.
