INFO: Smashing Pumpkins was one of the biggest bands of the 90s. Their sound merged together metal, grunge and experimental rock that made them stand out from the rest of the grunge bands at the time. Although founding members James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin and D'arcy Wretzky were all involved in the creative process, Billy Corgan was pretty much the creative engine and control freak of the band. He was the introverted kid who always had the goal of being successful with music. But success didn’t come easy to Corgan. His step mother abused him physically and emotionally as a child, and his entire core family was against the idea of him pursuing music. No one expected him to be the biggest rock star on the planet, but that’s exactly what happened. But although he reached his peak of success externally, he was continuously struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts internally. In this video we take a closer look at how Corgan managed to get through his phases of depression and become the person he is today.
