William Patrick Corgan, Jr, or Billy Corgan, as most people call him, has great physiques. He is extremely tall, his body is quite ripped and his shoulders are wide.
Probably, he could become a great athlete, but he got interested in music. He took the guitar at first time, when he was in his early childhood. He was raised by a father and a stepmother. His father earned his living, being a musician. Bill liked music and he always dreamed to devote his life to music making.
When he was a teenager, Billy created his first band. It was named “The Marked” and consisted of his friends, music enthusiasts, who also dreamed to play music and become popular. But the band was not successful and soon it was disbanded.
Billy Corgan believed, he could form another band. He played the guitar solo at night clubs and cafes and soon he got acquainted with a musician D’Arcy Wretzky. They met Jimmy Chamberlin next and some other musicians. Soon they formed “Smashing Pumpkins”.
This band appeared to be much more successful than the previous one. They made music in Chicago and soon they were known at each night club. Thus the talented fellows were noticed by the representative of Caroline Records. In 1990 they signed their first deal and released their debut album, named “Gish”.
Billy Corgan and his band “Smashing Pumpkins” became popular all over the world. Their hits, such as “Today”, “Disarm”, “Zero”, “Thirty-Three” and many others sounded everywhere. They played music in the style of alternative rock.
The musician disbanded in 2000, being extremely popular. The reason was contradictions between its members and drug addition of Jimmy Chamberlin. But in 2005 “Smashing Pumpkins” united again and continued playing and producing new great hits.
Billy Corgan is completely bald and, probably, it is the only thing, which is the evidence of his middle ages. He is still unmarried officially, but he is in relationship. The singer and producer has 1 child. His former spouse is Chris Fabian. He dated numerous other famous women. Now he lives with his son’s mother, Chloe Mendel.
Billy Corgan hates dieting and he eats everything he likes. But the singer is a great sports enthusiast and it helps him to stay fit. He is extremely good in wrestling. Billy makes arm strength exercises almost every day.
Being extremely healthy physically, Billy Corgan is a very sensitive person mentally. He has been struggling from numerous anxieties and depressions since childhood. He even tried to commit a suicide. Now, when he has become a father, he feels much more self confident.
Hopefully, he will be happy now!
