Billy Corgan Talks About Rush's Ongoing Inspiration
The Chicago Sun-Times has posted a new interview with Smashing Pumpkin's frontman Billy Corgan titled Billy Corgan at home and at peace with making rock and roll. In the interview, Corgan speaks of his continued respect and inspiration for Rush:His inspirations are now bands that continue to make music but without artistic pretense, such as Neil Young, Iggy Pop, and particularly Rush. He says the Canadian rock giants have taught him that “the right way to get older is no apologies, do your thing, and when you get out there, you can still walk off the stage feeling you’re one of the best at what you do.”As most fans know, Corgan not only introduced the band when they received their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame but he also had a large part in the band's multi-award winning documentary Beyond the Lighted Stage.
“You don’t feel they’re leaving anything on the table or phoning it in,” he says. “That’s the spirit that made you love them in the first place.”
