Billy Corgan Never Smashed a Pumpkin, but Pal Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Has
Billy Corgan cements his foot into the grave as yet another music legend succumbs to the growing number of aging musicians who make mockeries of their careers. Brace yourself, because your palm is about to smash into your face.
A new video has surfaced featuring Billy "Leader of the Smashing Pumpkins"
Corgan. He's sitting in what looks like a recording studio, which is a
horrifying sight considering that this may imply that Corgan is planning

Billy Corgan has done more than his fair share of endorsements in the past.
Aside from basketball, he's also an avid fan of professional wrestling. So much that he shot this promotional video:
He also really loves to race affordable, midsized cars:
