Nothing some of us don't already know but very interesting. I'm actually curious as to what you thought about what he said Jason...

Most of what he says and thinks makes perfect sense. I agree with most of that.

Nothing new really game up there, but I liked the sophistication in the interview and the history references

I also enjoyed his jabs at the "Pro Tools Robots". Pretty sure he's leaning towards Owl City, Skrillex, etc. on those remarks.

Not a fan of Corgan or his bucket hats. But he speaks the truth

The bucket hats are the worst, thinking of his as a fisherman is hilarious! His attitude is the best; no matter how bad people talk about him... he is awesome...my question is how can someone who I agree with on so many levels be unable to make music I can relate to? It must be experience and how I have no idea how it feels to be him or have gone through the things he has gone through

i respect him as a musician, he saw the highest highs with the smashing pumpkins, but this is like watching a billionaire talk about the "state" of the economy. meh
