We are Billy Corgan and Marilyn Manson. Ask us anything.
We just announced The End Times Tour. It kicks off July 7th and tickets started to go on sale today. We stopped by to answer your questions about the tour, The Pale Emperor and The Smashing Pumpkins Monuments To An Elegy.
Victoria's on the line. Ask us anything.
BC: I'd like to say I hope this is the first of a series of chats that we could do with reddit. I think it's an awesome format to speak to people directly without the usual malarkey.
MM: Hahaha! You sound like my dad.
I'd like to say that: when I was a kid, and I listened to music with my headphones on in Christian school, I never thought I'd be able to interact with the person that made that music. So it's almost unusually the same? Right now i feel as much a fan as the people I'm talking to, because we're talking about Billy's music, and my music, and I do it because I'm a real motherfucker when it comes to the things in my life, especially art. And to be able to talk to people who like MY favorite bands - Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson - I feel lucky, and I hope you do too.
