Corgan lived with Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain during a time in the 2000’s. View recent Q&A highlights below.

You’ve lived with Frances Bean, what’s your thoughts, artist in the making?

“@space_witch666 has a huge future if she wants it as an artist. She is smart, cool, and super talented.”

Do you make plans for the future or take things as they come?

“I have plans for the next 10 years (with music).”

Thank you for speaking about childhood abuse.

“Thank you. I’ve been criticized many times for it but I will never stop depending the defenseless.”

What is the best way to defeat ignorance? More education?

“Mockery against the elite class and compassion for the rest.”

Was Mouth of Babes recorded live while jamming in studio? Has it ever been played live?

Live, can’t remember. Released version was recorded live, with vocals overdubbed.

Pomp and Circumstances was better live. Love the solo though, and Jimmy’s hihat thing.

“Agreed, the album version is a missing for sure.”
