Billy Corgan Reveals If He Still Hates Gavin Rossdale


Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan revealed that he ‘loves’ Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale in a new Instagram story Q&A, showing that their feud is long dead.

Bush and The Smashing Pumpkins feuded in the 90’s. Billy Corgan accused Bush of being a Grunge ripoff act, and even mocked the Bush song “Swallowed” in an interview jokingly asking what Gavin was singing about swallowing.

Gavin Rossdale criticized Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness when it came out, “It sounds like they want to be some sort of hi-fi coffee-table rock band now. It’s quite heavy metal, some of it? I think it’s horrible.” Rossdale and Corgan were also both sleeping with Courtney Love around the same time in the mid 90’s.

The first sign that the feud appeared to be over was when Bush opened for The Smashing Pumpkins in Vienna in July 2013.

Below are excerpts from Corgan’s Instagram story Q&A.

What do you dream about most? I dream of you…true.

I dream of me, too. Strange.

Did you really have beef with Gavin Rosedale? Cuz I saw him at one of your shows and I was all confused.

Love Gavin. Like, a lot. No heat, as we say in wrasslin.

How many guitars do you have?

10,432. One for each day of my insanity.

Up late once again?

Gee wilikers, Mom. Can’t I just talk to my digital friends? Sheesh.

Add I of the Mourning to the setlist, please!

You want that with fries, sir?
