Billy Corgan discussed the Smashing Pumpkins and his history of being a difficult artist with MassLive this week. "It’s like people put things on you that you didn’t create," he said. "But because they created them, you’re supposed to live with that. And so what’s interesting particularly with my generation, is that I see other artists just going along with the flow. But when I don’t go along, I’m being treated like my difficulty at 20 was a good thing but my difficulty at 45 is a bad thing."

Smashing Pumpkins released their eighth album, 'Oceania,' earlier this year. But Corgan is the only original member of the band who also played on the group's 1991 debut LP 'Gish.'
