You can now watch a 47-minute JBTV retrospective on the alternative rock legends from Chicago featuring rare interviews, previously unseen footage and live performances by the Smashing Pumpkins, Billy Corgan (during TheFutureEmbrace era) and Zwan.
The feature begins with an interview with Joe Shanahan, and he introduces footage of the Smashing Pumpkins playing Cherub Rock and Today at the Metro on August 14th, 1993. There is also an interview where Billy Corgan discusses his generally positive experience in making the music video for Disarm. He then contrasts that experience with some of the setbacks that occurred on the set of the Today music video.
The JBTV retrospective then shows some heavy renditions of Zero and Ava Adore at the Metro in December 1999. Those performances are EPIC and are a must-see! The video then jumps to a short interview with Zwan and a performance at The Museum of Science and Industry in 2003. There is also footage of Billy Corgan during TheFutureEmbrace era performing All Things Change at the Vic Theater in 2005. He must have had some kind of finger-bleeding solo earlier in the show – ouch! The video ends with an acoustic Smashing Pumpkins performance of 1979 at the Metro in 1999.
