I’m staying way out of this one, as I’m a big fan of both Pitchfork and Billy Corgan (not to mention, our last pro-SP post got TwentyFourBit a cool shout-out from Dave Navarro), but it looks like Corgan doesn’t heart P4K as much as us or, say, Bono. Check out this quote from Corgan in an interview with Shockhound (via HU):
“He’s a good person and great drummer; better that than a great drummer and a shit person,” Corgan said of 19-year-old Smashing Pumpkins drummer Mike Byrne. “He gives me hope for his generation. He’s coming from a world that’s willing to look beyond all the Pitchfork crap and get back to good music.”
Perhaps he’s just fuming about being shut out of P4K’s Top 500 Tracks of the 2000s, but like I said before, I’m steering clear of this one.
