Billy Corgan working on autobiography

Written by John Ritchie on May 11, 2011

Billy Corgan has been writing an autobiography, titled God is Everywhere, from Here to There, that he described as a “spiritual memoir.”

Corgan told Rolling Stone

It’s a very interesting take inside my personal life and my band life, I’ve decided to write this on my own, which is complete insanity. I try to spend about an hour a day on the book, which is the time I would usually put towards music writing. So that means I have to find that hour, because I won’t give up that music writing time. It’s a journey, for sure.

Corgan states that the book is totally new material and don’t expect to see anything like the online diaries that he posted several years ago on his Myspace page.

It’s totally fresh material. When I started talking about child abuse stuff [on MySpace], and people started saying, ‘You have no right to talk about that stuff,’ it was a total turn off. Because people start saying, ‘Well, my dad ripped my arm off, so you can’t talk.’ Well, I’m just talking about my journey. I apologize that I didn’t get beat more. Talking about child abuse in public brings out a lot of weird stuff from other people that haven’t healed from it, so I just got really bummed out, said ‘Fuck it,’ and stopped.

God is Everywhere is scheduled to be released sometime next year by St. Martin’s Press.
