Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan Returns To The Mainstream (With A Little Help From Tommy Lee)


Since entering the limelight in 1991, the apocryphal year zero of “the grunge revolution” as he calls it, Billy Corgan has led The Smashing Pumpkins with unsentimental musical ambition. Never one to be lulled into complacency by past achievements, he has driven his band from one artistic challenge to another, from alternative guitar rock to electronica and back again, from concept records to concept album cycles.

vs-show-copy

It’s no doubt that the Victoria’s Secret Angels are completely mesmerizing at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Seriously, how can legs actually be that long?

With this year’s headliners, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and Ed Sheeran, we know there are more of these moments to come.
