After the The Smashing Pumpkins reformed in 2007, Billy Corgan posted a message on smashingpumpkins.com blog page saying “[l]ooking for girls from Siamese Dream album cover… As you all know, they were quite young when the photo was taken. They are not conjoined anymore, as far as we know.” If anyone has any information on how to find the girls, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
In 1993 Billy Corgan married his long-time on-again, off-again girlfriend Christine “Chris” Fabian, a museum artist. They were married at a small ceremony at his house in in Chicago.
“Teargarden by Kaleidyscope” is the eighth studio album by The Smashing Pumpkins, released as free MP3 downloads, and as a series of physical limited-edition EPs, culminating in a single box set release. The album will have 44 new songs, released one at a time, and will also be issued as eleven four-song EPs.
In 1996, The Smashing Pumpkins embarked on an extended world tour in support of the album Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. Billy Corgan’s look during this period—a shaved head, a longsleeve black shirt with the word “ZERO” printed on it, and silver pants—became iconic.

You would never expect to see bands like Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins making fools of themselves on stage by playing a game of Crisco Twister, would you??? Well, on September 23, 1991 the day before Nirvana would release “Nevermind”, Nirvana and The Pumpkins were booked to play Boston’s FM 101.7 WFNX Birthday Bash at Axis Nightclub.
This venue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is haunted. The building is divided into six separate venues, The Eagles Ballroom, The Rave Hall, The Eagles Hall, The Rave Bar, The Rave Viberoom, The Penthouse Lounge & The Eagles Club. In various rooms of the club, bands have heard a presence or seen an entity watching them play usually during rehearsal, or when not many people are around.
The Smashing Pumpkins song “Spaceboy” off the Siamese Dreams album was written by Billy Corgan about his half-brother Jesse Corgan (on-stage in the red shirt). Jesse was born with mild cerebral palsy that caused him to walk on his toes, and Tourette’s syndrome (a neurological disorder that can cause nonsensical or uncontrolled speech). He also had heart problems and a chromosomal disorder that caused him to be slower than the other children.
Billy Corgan is dressed up as an Ice Cream truck driver for Smashing Pumpkins video for "Today" but on his uniform, his name is spelled "Billie" instead of Billy. Why??? If you know please explain.
