Billy Corgan Reveals Hilarious Argument With ‘Blonde Elephant In The Room’ D’arcy


Billy Corgan discussed meeting his former Smashing Pumpkins bandmate D’arcy Wretzky in a new interview on It’s Electric with Lars Ulrich. He said he met her and they began arguing after a Dan Reed Network concert, and that the argument has never ended, a reference to their recent feud over Corgan only offering D’arcy a guest role on the Shiny and Oh So Bright tour. Alternative Nation transcribed Corgan’s comments.

“The story is we were both at this show, and I came out. It was a hot night, you go out in the street and it’s cool kind of thing. I heard this person talking behind me saying that they loved the show, and I didn’t like the show at all. I just had a visceral reaction, I just didn’t like the show. It’s not because I thought the band sucked, I wouldn’t have been there if I thought the band sucked because I had the record.

I just didn’t like the show for whatever reason. I heard this person saying it, and I turned around and it was her, and in our first moment of knowing each other, we got into an argument. It’s a true story. Here we are, and the argument has not ended.”

“James [Iha] and I were already playing, and she said she was in a band, which to this day I don’t know if it was or wasn’t true, because I never saw a gig, and I never saw anybody. But she said she was in a band, so she came over, and the next thing you know she’s in a band. It was the three of us for awhile before Jimmy [Chamberlin] joined.”

Later in the interview Lars referred to D’arcy as the ‘white elephant in the room.’ Corgan jokingly responded that she was the ‘blonde elephant in the room.’

    I’d rather be the blonde elephant than the bald bell-end in the room.
