Byakuya is the best character ,

Great insight!

Billy, Joe, and Kyle provide great commentary and views on The Smashing Pumpkins. Billy going through the bands classic songs is a great listen for any SP fan and all of the guests have been super interesting! Hearing Billy discuss the concept and plot of Atum is really interesting and I believe this is a great way to debut the new album!

Keep going!!!

I have been a massive fan of Billy and the Pumpkins for nearly 30 years now. Seeing them in concert in 1996 was the moment that I knew that I was going to devote my life to music, one way or another, and I actually did it. This podcast is an amazing forum for Billy to tell tales from behind the scenes previously unheard and I am 100% here for it. A couple episodes ago the idea of a separate podcast to discuss Mellon Collie and another to discuss Machina was floated… PLEASE follow through with this!!! I never leave reviews but I felt compelled when it comes to this. I am listening and hanging in every word. Also spreading the word to get listenership up.
I think my favorite moment so far was the discussion with Jimmy about lyrics. Me, being mostly not a “lyric guy“(and predominantly a drummer), appreciated more than words can express that portion of the conversation. Shows that you don’t have to be knowledgeable and possibly even be paying attention to the lyrics to be 100% IN the music(although when I do actually make out some lyrics they are very appealing/thought provoking). Much love. Thank you.

Amazing

Been a fan of Billy since I was 16 (44 now). Will never forget where I was when I saw him playing melon collie. Still unbelievably amazing music and will always be my favorite musician. Have loved how he’s evolved. Different music for different seasons of life. It’s such a treat to hear the stories behind the music and movie and listen to his guests. Can’t wait for the album release!
