It would only be appropriate (though not accurate) at this juncture for a surviving member of Candlebox to hold Mr. Corgan accountable for the demise of ECW. From Home Run Derby‘s Richie Rich:
Thursday night during a break at the Smashing Pumpkins show at the Chicago Theater, lead singer and Cub fan Billy Corgan waxed poetic about the Bears winning the Super Bowl in 2012, Mike Ditka coming out of retirement, and his beloved Cubs, while getting in some digs at White Sox fans – telling them to stay the F*ck out of his Cubs Fan conversations.
Then Corgan said that he might write a song about the Cubs ¦
“God Bless Steve Goodman, but I think I can do better than ˜Go Cubs Go™
Really – I™ve been called a lot of things, arrogant is one of them. I don™t think this is arrogance. I think I can top ˜Go Cubs Go™”
Still on the subject of Cub-themed songs ¦ Corgan did what someone should have done a long time ago ¦ he blamed Eddie Vedder for the Cubs™ 2008 playoff collapse.
“If ¦ If ¦ IF ¦ the Cubs did have a chance this last year that just passed ¦ Fuckin™ Eddie Vedder killed that shit dead. Last I checked Eddie ain™t living here, Okay?
Eddie ain™t living here to write a song about my fuckin™ team.”
Ya listening, Ben Schwartz? There’s a clearly defined residency requirement for supporting Billy Corgan’s Chicago Cubs.
