Smashing Pumpkins Frontman Gives Advice

Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins says it’s important for the current rising generation of musicians to ignore labels and management who insist they should focus on a single track in order to cement their career. “You’ve got to say to a young kid, ‘You can’t be about that one song,” he states.

 

“If all you’re about is the one song you’re basically putting a shelf-life on yourself – and you’re done. Don’t buy this argument where it’s like, ‘Well, let’s just get you on the radio then you’ll build a career after that.’ That’s very rare.” And he warns music fans: “If they don’t support artists in total it’s actually a vote for the other side.”
