Billy Corgan, lead singer for the Smashing Pumpkins, has thrown in his 2 cents on the current troubles in music, blaming iTunes for the demise of the album format. "There is no point. People don't even listen to it all. They put it on their iPod, they drag over the two singles and skip over the rest" Corgan said. In fact Corgan has no plans on releasing any more albums, period. "The listening patterns have changed, so why are we killing ourselves to do albums, to create balance and do the arty track to set up the single? It's done."
Ok so he doesn't like iTunes and he doesn't want to release anymore albums, fair enough but then he takes it a step further making an out of the blue comment about working with Timbaland: "We will crack the egg like we did in ‘92, without doing something embarrassing like working with Timbaland."
Does Mr. Corgan have a valid point, what do you think?
