Billy Corgan Talks ‘Mellon Collie’: “I worked very hard to make an album that would last”….’and the Infinite Sadness’

Billy Corgan: Wanted to thank everyone for the incredible outpouring I received yesterday on the 24th anno of Mellon Collie (with over 4,700+ comments and counting). I worked very hard to make an album that would last in a way that far different from the shiny idealism of Siamese, and in many ways you could say that the terrain covered between Siamese, Mellon Collie, and Adore has set the template for almost all the music I’ve made that has followed. But what makes MCIS special to me is the breadth of the songs, and it’s honesty. And it strikes me that it’s also the kind of honesty that is rare, and really offered on so grand a stage. So again, my deep appreciation for you, and your listening. It makes all the world’s spin over here, and keeps the flame burning for more to be found -William
