Billy Corgan: ‘The Smashing Pumpkins Could Continue On Without Me’

Written by Kiel Egging on July 19, 2012

The Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has suggested in a recent interview with The Daily Beast that the band could continue on without him.

Corgan mentioned in the interview that if he decides to retire from the band, he might still stay in the background and write songs.

“Maybe there comes a point like Kiss, where Kiss is going to continue without Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley].”

“Maybe there’ll come a point in Smashing Pumpkins history where this band will continue on without me. I’ll just write songs.”

The Smashing Pumpkins will headline the final night of Splendour in the Grass in Byron Bay next weekend – and as far as we know, he’ll be performing with them!
