Hear Smashing Pumpkins Play a Beautifully Stripped Down Version of “Drum + Fife” On Big Morning Buzz Live

"I will play this drum 'till my dying say," Corgan sings over delicately constructed guitar rhythms.

The Smashing Pumpkins stopped by our Big Morning Buzz Live studio to play an acoustic version of “Drum + Fife.” The track, a plea for adventure, is part of the band’s 2014 LP, Monuments to an Elegy. Hear Billy Corgan and Jeff Schroeder play a stripped down rendition of the song in the clip.

In case you missed it, hear Corgan call out contemporary rock’s “faceless posers” in his episode of Playback.
