Hey, readers! Listen up! Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan is writing a memoir, but if you’re looking for a tell-all book about Rock this isn’t the book for you. Corgan says he’s about three-fourths the way through with a focus on his spiritual evolution. Though his rock star life is a factor in his writing, and he’s had a lot of run ins with other powerful famous people, he won’t be giving any details about his famous friends. Well, he will share some stories, but all the names will be masked by pseudonyms. Keeping names secret isn’t just for their anonymity; Corgan says that it’s cheaper to keep their names out of it. There’s no word yet on when the book will be out. We’ll keep you posted.

The video contains a ton of makeup, crazy camera filters, blacklights, T ‘n A, and of course Twiggy and Manson getting’ all creepy with slo-motion video effects.
