Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale has uploaded a video in a beautiful backyard where he shows off his love for Billy Corgan and The Smashing Pumpkins, as he has “1979” by The Smashing Pumpkins playing.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan revealed that he ‘loves’ Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale in a Instagram story Q&A recently, 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.”
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.
