The emotions and soul searching at the heart of The Smashing Pumpkins music is on full display in this Rockview Audiobiography. Peter Bruen, creator of numerous audiobiographies ranging widely across the contemporary music scene, captures lead singer and songwriter Billy Corgan and fellow Pumpkins in moments of quiet reflection. With an intimacy very much the obverse of their guitar-heavy sound they talk of life on the road and in the studio; the variety of their influences; their relationships with fans; and the rock business in general.
Smashing Pumpkins must have been tempted to follow the success of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, especially as they sought the influence of Butch Vig in the studio; however they refused to follow the scene and maintained their non-image identity.
In this unique and exclusive audiobiog, we hear how emotions drove the band and how essential it is to have a state of mind in the studio that allows for creative inspiration.
This is not a record company, artist, or management-endorsed music release, and sound quality may vary.
Smashing Pumpkins are not an image-conscious band.
They are confident in their musical ability and are rooted in the classic influences of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Additionally the band has a genuine concern for their fans and has upset the mainstream by being honest. Every fan and collector must get this unique audiobiog.
