Billy Corgans’ Beef With Amazon
Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins is angry again. Why he is ticked at Amazon and the music industry as a whole. Will this effect new music from the ‘Pumpkins? Billy Corgan is lashing out at Amazon.com after the website posted the tracklist to the Smashing Pumpkins’ upcoming “Adore” box set earlier than expected. Corgan sent out a tweet Wednesday morning promising to share the tracklist on the band’s website later that day. But he followed that with a “correction” tweet explaining that Amazon had jumped the gun. Corgan says he’s had the tracklist ready to go for months now, but decided to wait after talking to the record label. Corgan also claims that Amazon broke an agreement by posting the details early, and adds a lengthy digression on the Smashing Pumpkins’ website about how this incident is indicative of the many problems with the music business as a whole. Of course, Corgan also shared some info about the new “Adore” box set. Fans can get the full details about the six-disc, one-DVD collection at SmashingPumpkinsNexus.com, and pre-order it at MadameZuzus.com.
