This week Billy Corgan launched his new travelogue project Thirty Days, announced an acoustic collection titled 50 x 50, and the April release of a new solo album. In promotion of his new whirlwind of activity, he stopped by Chicago radio station The Loop to chat it up with radio host Mancow. During the interview Corgan revealed he's been talking to original members of Smashing Pumpkins about getting back together to play. According to Corgan, he's up for a reunion, but it's complicated:
"There's a willingness for us to play, but...also, the world's changed a lot since we didn't play...the reunion thing is always a bit weird because people come in with their expectations.
"My whole thing is, if we're going to do it, I think we do it to make people happy and not sort of go against the tide of what people would want to hear and that sort of stuff. But my interest is sort of limited -- I'm not going to do it for 14 years of my life"
