Article on Billy Corgan's visit to a High School in his hometown of Chicago:

"Corgan, a Glenbard North High School graduate, spoke extensively about thoughts of suicide and unhappiness, ridiculed a few students for asking dumb questions and made sexual innuendoes about "American Idol" contestant William Hung.

Wearing a black hat (which he refused to remove), a striped shirt and dark pants, the 37-year-old fielded questions ranging from what his musical influences have been to which rock stars he would put in his dream band.

(The answer to the dream-band question, by the way, was: Jimi Hendrix on lead guitar, Smashing Pumpkins' Jimmy Chamberlin on drums, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on bass, Stevie Nicks on tambourine and Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes on keyboards.)"
