so what's the deal with Billy?

I just recently got into the pumpkins, and pretty much everything I read makes Billy seem like a giant prick. What'd he do?

I dont think he seems like a prick....i think he is just very egocentric when it gets to music...and he seems like a very strange man...but thats just what i think :)

You must realise: EVERY "rockstar" is a prick. It comes with the whole package. Some people are just more honest and open about it than others. A rockstar not being a prick is like a politician not lying, it's impossible.

I dont believe all of them are pricks, I just think that maybe he takes his music very seriously and isnt afraid to show it

Like every other rockstars he was prick. I agree with Adam that Billy is self important and he thinks that the Smashing Pumpkins were one of the greatest bands in the world.He's cool dude.

I think Billy is a bit more eccentric and obsessed than other rock stars maybe. Everybody who publishes music wants it to be heard but he seems to be obsessed with regaining the status the Pumpkins had in their prime. I think he never got over the fact that their time was over at some point. Plus, people didn't want to hear his solo stuff which must have been extra hard to swallow since he always saw himself as the musical head of the Pumpkins.

Yeah Billy comes off from me as someone who says whatever is on his mind, which I will respect. YET some things he says makes me "severely dislike him."

Well.....I guess I would compare him(by EGO & ATTITUDE!) to Axl Rose. Both singers create good music, have pretty much ALL of the key members gone, and have new people filling in and trying to be relevant.

IDK I am now curious about SP and looking around and stuff.
