  1. What is a “Billy Corgan”? Some type of antiquated piece of equipment that barely functions as it should?

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 16 Thumb down 32
  2. The difference between a has-been and a never-was is around $50 million dollars, freedom to do as you like and a huge legacy to look back on.
    Yeah, I’m sure all you naysayers are basking in joy with your anonymity, lack of influence and inability to even make a decent dinner reservation.
