Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan reacted to rock stars like himself, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl being called ‘extinct creatures’ in a new Instagram story Q&A. Corgan created hilarious dinosaur nicknames for himself, Vedder, and Grohl. You can view other recent Q&A highlights below as well.

Is it just me or is the rock star (not pop/rap star) an extinct creature?

“LOL am I extinct? As is Grohlasaurus and VedderRaptor?”

What’s your dinosaur name?


I love these Q&A. It offers insight into you as a human and not the character the media created and is very cool.

“Problem is, THEY don’t want to give HIM up so they are reduced to a kind of grovel or inventing stories by trolling my IG.”

Thoughts on the If All Goes Wrong DVD? Loved the American Gothic material on it.

“Well intended. And worthy of documentation, the struggle to adjust to a different world.”

Do you consider yourself a forgiving person?

“No. Not my strong suit.”

Do you still talk to Ginger [Pooley] or Lisa [Harriton]?

“Yes, of course. We remain friends.”

What is Mr. Choo Choo’s favorite song?

“I kid you not, it’s Solara. He sings it himself. He was performing it for Jimmy earlier tonight.”
