Smashing Pumpkins Visit Chicago’s Q101.1

Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin of took over Chicago’s Q101.1 with iPods and mixtapes, while Chris Payne chatted with the pair about the pressure to play their past hits – even though playing those sentimental hits doesn’t bring out the same energy from the audience. Billy also discussed how he gets turned off by cliques and scenes fostered by local music. “You don’t have as many great moments in music as much as you did in the ’90s, ’80s, ’70s, ’60s and ’50s,” Corgan argued. “I think it’s really hurting us overall as a culture. Anytime I meet you bands I say you’ve got to get beyond your little subset.” Watch some highlights via YouTube below.
