Billy Corgan Background

Born in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, Billy Corgan was surrounded by musical influences from day one. His father, William Corgan Sr., was a blues and rock guitarist, and he imparted his love for music onto Billy. Although he had grown up loving and admiring music, he didn't start playing guitar until high school. He gave all of his savings to his father, who in turn went out and bought him a used Les Paul guitar knock-off. While Corgan Sr. helped guide Billy down the musical path, urging him to listen to great guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck, the young aspiring musician largely taught himself how to actually play the instrument.

Corgan played in numerous bands throughout high school, and although he graduated with honors and numerous scholarship offers to prestigious colleges, he chose instead to pursue music full time. For a few years, Corgan moved to various cities around the country, like Chicago and St. Petersburg, but found little success anywhere. When he moved back to Chicago to live with his father, he decided his next venture would be creating a band called The Smashing Pumpkins. He and James Iha, whom he met in a record store, started writing songs and recording demos together. Soon after, the group recruited bassist D'arcy Wretzky and drummer Jimmy Chamberlain, and The Smashing Pumpkins were formed.

Before they knew it, The Smashing Pumpkins had achieved massive success around the world, receiving great praise from critics and fans alike. Eventually, partially due to Chamberlain's severe drug addictions, the band disbanded, and Corgan embarked on his solo career. While Corgan loved working on his own projects, he also missed touring and performing with The Smashing Pumpkins. In 2006, Corgan was able to reunite the group for a fleeting couple of years, and the band started to play shows off and on for years following. Billy Corgan, an undeniable alternative rock talent with a rich history of leading one of the greatest bands of the 21st century, is ready to bring some of his great rock tunes to stage again! Grab your tickets to see Billy Corgan perform live by heading to StubHub now!
