Onstage Meltdowns

Billy Corgan

No one’s ever accused the Smashing Pumpkins frontman of being stable, but Corgan’s actions during a 2008 show at United Place in New York were extreme even by his standards. Apparently miffed that critics had panned the previous night’s show as a schlockfest of boring standbys and messy covers, Corgan decided to invite a fan onstage to get his opinion of the proceedings. Unfortunately, the fan answered honestly: “It sucked.” A huffy Corgan then directed his anger in every possible direction but himself – but mostly at his fan. "I liked that song you wrote,” he said dryly. “It was a big hit in Europe". —Jeff Royer
