    "and the wildflowers are scattered over the flame" Wow, beautiful, sad and so true. Amazing how an artist can share so much emotion with so few words.

    I wish Billy would have gone deeper on the Free Mason topic. He seemed right on the verge of telling us what it all means but then ends it abruptly. I do agree with the end, stay positive and live to a hundred. It's so tough to do in a world that seems all too negative at times. My solution is simply to go the sea with some good music and maybe even a beer. Connection to mother earth engaged.

    Can BIly Corgan just stop. He's been going downhill since Mellon Collie. It's becoming an embarrassment.

      Shut up you idiot Billy is still a great musician and he has probably accomplished more than anyone in your family.

    Sorry Grandma Lillian did not see the Cubs finally win the World Series. Then again, maybe she had a 'front row seat'. You were blessed by your grandmother's wisdom and advice...Stay Positive Billy!

    These videos are awesome. I love seeing more of Billy "the person" as opposed to just seeing Billy "the rock star." His music is great; my favorite actually; but he is so much more than just his music. Thank you for showing us this side of yourself, Billy!

    If you have a lot of family in Kentucky the "seven generation curse" might be explained.
    Check the tree for Inbreeding.

    my father was like that too. He'd curse his bad luck daily. l remember y mom telling him to stop saying it, that it would attract sorrow to all of us and it always seemed like it did. That's actually how l made up my mind to become an optimistic person

    Thank you for visiting Metropolis, Il. We were neighbors in Chicago in the 80's I had studio in the Flat Iron Building, hung out played at Red Dog/Borderline, Metro and Blue Note. I was partners with J Ried in a coffee house gallery and in the band Malucasamba and friends with Matt/Sabrina at Windy City R.S. I remember when SP would practice how cool it was to hear your music on the streets and in the buildings it was an all consuming sound that you had to listen too. Miss that feeling from my youth. I would just listen and create. I attended SAIC and worked in the media center and remember loaning equipment to JI (he would make recording in the stairwells and halls) for his band "Smashing Pumpkins" which I thought was a curious name for a band and said he needed a cooler name. What did I know right? Congrats on all your success. I now have a brewcafe and studio in Metropolis. I love the slower life here and all the people. Life is good.
    Thank you again for sharing a part of your history and including our small "super" town in your travel video. Hugs and happy travels!

    I run the Super Museum and I wasn't there that day... I've lived in Metropolis most of my life. My daughter's middle name is Lillian because of the song Lily. In high school I started talking to who would become my husband because he was wearing a smashing pumpkins shirt one day. Smashing Pumpkins brought us together so I want to take a moment to thank you for all your years of beautiful music, and for making my teenage years so memorable. :) XOXO

      An infinitely happy song covering the depths all share. Letting one in on the key secret in that the highs ultimately MUST equal the (potential) lows that inevitably come. For without them, neither exist.
