Courtney Love Reveals What She Wants From Billy Corgan


Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan recently posted a photo of his Big Muff guitar pedal, and he received a comment from Courtney Love asking for his phone number.

“i love this . lost your new number . text me ! ??❤️”

Former Smashing Pumpkins bassist Ginger Pooley commented, “Nice!”

Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin commented, “Fuzz – Love.”

Billy Corgan has offered an update on new Smashing Pumpkins recording sessions a couple of days ago.

“Sang 2 songs yesterday (Solara, Alienation, in the keys of E minor and D major), which leaves only ‘With Sympathy’ left (a song written btw by @chamberdrums and I). So work continues to go well. But that doesn’t stop me from waking up at 4 am, ears ringing, nerves a-ringing. The work a funny kind of toil that you both love and dread. But as someone wise said to me the other day, ‘the fact that you still care is what’s important’. Working this intimately again with @jamesihaofficial and Jimmy has been awesome, and makes me so proud of how hard we all work when pulling the same direction. ‘the years burn…'”

Corgan also shared a new video where he’s ‘kickin it’ with James Iha in the studio, which you can view below.

Fans in The Smashing Pumpkins Facebook group have noted that ticket sales for certain shows have really been picking up.

One fan wrote, “Interesting, I was on the Houston Toyota Arena website and noticed that LORDE still has Floor seats available for her concert and that’s this month. Yet Pumpkins have sold out all Floor seats already. I’m not dissing LORDE, I love her music but using this to show how media can twist stuff and bash who they want?”

Another fan posted a couple of days ago, “Yeah, about those ticket sales in the ‘weak’ markets. Salt Lake City on Sunday vs today. The tickets are selling without any problems, and the articles stating otherwise are clearly all click-bait.”

Other fans have commented about Smashing Pumpkins ticket sales in previously slower markets:

“Almost all gone! Every show will be a sellout. No doubt in my mind.”

“Alt-rock tabloids will surely revise and correct their articles soon. I’ll wait…”

“Some of the venues don’t have an interactive map, however I looked at the ‘weakest’ markets that Consequence of Sound referred to, and they look similar to Salt Lake City, except for Souix Falls…I’ll check NYC and Toronto.”

“There’s a new process that ticket venues are using. From what I understand, it prevents tickets all being sold at once. That way people have a real chance at getting one. It helps fend of scalpers as well. Scalped tickets Will still exist, but not in the 1000’s like before.”
