Watch Billy Corgan Cover Neil Young's "After the Goldrush"

Watch Billy Corgan Cover Neil Young's "After the Goldrush"
Not sure if you know this yet, but the sombre piano performer telling everyone his name is William Patrick Corgan is, in fact, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan. Now that we've got that bit of housekeeping out of the way, here's another cover from the artist.

Following a surprisingly excellent take on Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," Corgan stopped by the Q studio to offer something a little less unexpected.

He sat down at a piano and delivered a heartbreaking take on Neil Young's "After the Goldrush," updating the lyrics slightly to sing "Look at Mother Nature on the run in the 2017s." 

Watch Corgan deliver the cover below.
