High markups but some interesting pieces.

$30k for an Alesis SR-16? Lol.

Assume they're not actually expecting anyone to pay anything like that but are just inviting offers?

Every guitar I clicked on was sold, o.k., I only clicked on the RD and 2 hardtail strats. Curious if they really sold or he just took them off the site.

Pumpkins once did an in-store in Miami in the early 90's. They end up doing a trivia contest and this super fan wins. Billy Corgan doesn't care about the contest or kid who won and ends up giving the prize to some cute girl in attendance. James Iha looks at this like woah that's so fucked up and gives the kid one of his Boss pedals right off his board.

Siamese dream is a classic everything else... not so much.

Like the guy is an asshole and probably always was, but there was some incredible music in there and he remains one of my music heroes despite being a prick.

It's a weird thing, trying to separate art from the individual. I suppose art is often intended to (or is interpreted as an attempt to) transcend the individual, but somehow despite loving the bulk of Corgan's output (even a lot of the iffy stuff) I still can't manage to like Wagner.

I was very into the Pumpkins from the time they broke up until the time they got back together.

They've been for sale for a while, a month or so, it wouldn't be surprising if they've sold already.

Siamese Dream was a classic, Gish ok, not bothered about the rest, and Billy Corgan anecdotally seems like he's a complete arsehole.

Great story. Wow.

I can pretty much never wholly separate the two. And if someone's a dickhead as well as a great charismatic artist it often makes me like them even more. Corgan doesn't have the right combination, though. Seems vindictive and unprincipled.

Very true - also applies to pretty much any 70's rock band - they made some pretty sketchy decisions regarding groupies.

I'd say I prefer Wagner to the Smashing Pumpkins TBH. His art has suffered more by association to others, although his own views weren't exactly great. Wagner and me by Stephen Fry is worth a watch if you haven't seen it - dealing with exactly what we are talking about.
