Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan has lashed out at Radiohead.
In a new interview the Pumpkins’ frontman called Radiohead “pompous” and said he would “piss” on them.
Billy Corgan, whose band release their new album ‘Oceania’ next week, has told Antiquiet that Radiohead were a symbol of the current culture of “valuation” which he despises.
“I’m not pissing on Rainbow. I’m not pissing on Deep Purple. But I’ll piss on fucking Radiohead, because of all this pomposity. This value system that says Jonny Greenwood is more valuable than Ritchie Blackmore. Not in the world I grew up in.
So I find myself defending things. Is Ritchie Blackmore a better guitar player than me and Jonny Greenwood? Yes. Have we all made contributions? Yes. I’m not attacking that. I’m attacking the pomposity that says this is more valuable than that. I’m sick of that. I’m so fucking sick of it, and nobody seems to tire of it.”
