Smashing Pumpkins ‘Disrespected’ By Fender Guitars


Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan discussed being ‘disrespected’ by Fender Guitars, and how Gibson blew him off in a new Instagram story Q&A.

Will you collaborate with Fender again?

Never. They disrespected me and I would never go back.

How did Fender disrespect you?

Too petty to get into.

Would you work with Gibson to make an electric of your own?

Gibson also blew me off so I’ll play them, but I won’t work with them. Want them to survive though.

The BC-1 sounds awesome and I love the pick-ups. Can you please consider making a signature multi-effect?

Discussing with Yamaha Guitars now.

Why did WPC remove Zeitgeist, TheFutureEmbrace, and Zwan from streaming?

Because I grew tired of being told that the works were irrelevant. So I will re-release when the world is ready to hear them with an open heart. Which is soon, I think.

If you haven’t given your life to Christ, the time is now, friend! Yeshua died/rose for you!

Man, the Jesus people are back on the warpath with me again. First it was ‘God is empty just like me’ lyric.

Christ is who he said that he was: The Messiah. Turn to Christ, eternal LIFE awaits!

OK, dude. Got it.
