Hasn't Billy had the overwhelming control over both SP and Zwan?

And if so, what the fuck does "Billy is going solo" really mean?

Just curious.

I was wondering that too.

How about...

Will Billy's backup band for his solo career also have a female bassist and Asian guitarist (and Jimmy C)?

Billy Corgan Steps Out

Billboard has informed Brachman.com that former Smashing Pumpkins/Zwan leader Billy Corgan has begun work on his solo debut, as confirmed by posts by the multi-talented Corgan on his own official Web site.

"I am excited to work on this music, because for the first time in my life it will be my tunes with no compromises to anyone or anything," he writes.

"It's gonna be loud and beautiful and poetic and dumb. Just the way I like it."

While Corgan will be guiding the project, he alluded to participation from other artists. "I come in with no songs but maybe one or two, no lyrics, no band (but a few Santa's helpers lined up) and no dairy," he said.

Perhaps in reference to long-standing rumors that he erased the studio work of his Smashing Pumpkins bandmates in favor of re-recording their parts himself, he said, "some would argue that it's not my first [solo album], and I wouldn't argue with you there."
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

HAHAHA

To me his love for wrestling is much weirder than his love for god.

I didn't know the www.billycorgan.com website, it's pretty fuckin cool. It looks like some amateur blog, only by fuckin Billy Corgan.
