Published Dec 12, 2008As we've previously reported, the Smashing Pumpkins' Zeitgeist cycle has been less than successful, to the point where front-man Billy Corgan was lashing out at hecklers. Well, it turns out disappointed concertgoers aren't the only people Corgan's growing tired of. In a recent interview with The Chicago Tribune, Corgan revealed that he's not going to bother releasing albums for the fickle public any longer.
"There is no point," he said. "People don't even listen to it all. They put it on their iPod, they drag over the two singles, and skip over the rest." Instead, Corgan says the band will simply focus on singles. "We'll still be creative, but in a different form."
Corgan also lashed out at those who said the Pumpkins reunited for the money, saying, "We didn't come back for the cash, we came back to be great again." Bummer that it didn't work out.
