I just went to a Billy Corgan concert in Nashville...

Heart 
And it was fucking amazing.

He’s an amazing artist. He gives it his heart and SOUL.

Truly. 

Truly.

I will have to think about this for a while.

I feel a lot of things.

Honored to have been there.

Tripped out to have been so close to him.

Sad because it didn’t last forever...

That would be heaven.

I got to hear him say these words tonight.

Life is a strange thing.

His voice is...

Beautiful.

He was perfect.

Stunning.

He is physically beautiful in person as well...

Something timeless about him.

Something that transcends.

He was wearing a beautiful outfit as well.

A long black jacket with purple lining.

He did the first part of the show wearing a cap...

The cap and his jacket arms had what looked like a modified Masonic symbol on it.

Instead of the G in the middle, it looked like something else. Not sure.

Second half of the show, he wasn’t wearing the cap and we got to see his gorgeous, iconic bald head.

Unbelievably beautiful. The whole 9 yards.

It was the Country Music Hall of Fame venue, very intimate.

I had no idea he was coming to Nashville...

It was only Wednesday I found out.

I had been on a Billy Corgan/Smashing Pumpkins kick for like a week, came out of nowhere.

I just happen to do a Google search and found out he was coming to Nashville.

I knew I had to go.

Interesting, two days notice and there was still a seat right at the front available.

Had my name on it.

How cool. Wish I could have gone to that with you.

On the way home, in the pouring rain, I saw an owl sitting on the side of the road.

Like a straight fucking G, just sitting there.

Lookin' at me.

What a strange night.

Billy Corgan is nothing short of a master.

It was so passionate...

And I don't know how he feels.

Maybe he doesn't feel like it's passionate.

But it is man.

His skill, vocals, guitar, piano...

Totally stunning. He was magnificent.

I tried to soak up the experience...

Be in the moment.

And I was. But I just didn't want it to end.

I didn't take my eyes away for a second.

I saw people looking at their phones and shit...

Not even taking pics, just looking at their phones.

The fuck are people smoking?

How can you take your eyes off that for even a second?

It was entrancing...

A total revelation on a lot of levels.

Some of the songs are sad as shit too...

Like...

I was just feelin' it man.

I was feeling Billy's pain.

And I don't know if anyone else felt what he wanted them to feel, when he wanted it.

Because he didn't look at the crowd much but when he did it meant something to him.

And I don't think he got the response he was looking for in some of those instances.

It must be strange to be up there like that...

Everyone looking at you like you're a god.

It made me feel like it's...

A lot to deal with.

But what a master dude...

Like he would sit down at the piano and stretch his arms out.

Really feel it... and then begin.

His voice was fucking amazing, I mean PERFECT. Absolutely perfect.

The entire time... every note was perfection.

They had two big iPads...

One in front of the mic where he'd sit to play the guitar, and one at the piano.

iPads are the new sheet music I suppose.

A true artist man, beyond freaking imagination.

I could have never imagined how powerful and stunning his performance was going to be.

Because I'll be honest...

I never knew he was that fucking good.

I've heard the Smashing Pumpkins over the years, like everybody else.

There are some songs I always thought were great.

But I just never knew.

I don't even remember how I got off on the kick recently, it's like one of those things, the real deal where you have no idea how you got on that path but it was totally meant to be.

It's powerful to see a true artist play like that. Just one guy, putting his heart and soul into the message.

So true and real.

He just feels the music...

FEELS it and translates the feeling.

That's what I think is fascinating about people who are so good at music.

They take something intangible and give it a physicality.

Vibration...

I got vibrated by Billy Corgan tonight y'all.

And it was such a close-up setting too, you could hear everything.

He heard me too...

Everything would go silent and he'd talk a little bit, now and then.

So funny, great sense of humor.

He told a story about how some of his family was from Hopkinsville, KY.

He said he related to the place and the old school country because of it...

He said it's 'in his DNA'.

He said it was awesome to be there tonight in the CMH of Fame which celebrates those artists.

I wasn't sure he was really digging the crowd until he started talking about it...

He said we were friends now.

Was very sweet.

This one dude in the front row was fangirling super hard over him.

He kept trying to get Billy to touch his hand, but he wouldn't.

The guy pitied him into throwing him a pick...

Twice. LMAO.

There was a 20 minute break...

People were going up to the stage taking selfies.

I didn't even take any pictures besides one of the stage, before he ever came out.

I didn't want to distract myself by fucking with the phone.

No time for cameras, we'll use our eyes instead.

His new songs are amazeballs...

Hearing that in person, wow.

There seems to be a lot of emphasis on his vocals with his new music...

Which I think is amazing.

I feel like a lot of the Smashing Pumpkins music was pretty hard, didn't really get to hear him so well.

Of course there are some songs which showcase his voice in a more clean kinda way.

But mostly... just a lot of music and not really vocals centered.

With him on the piano though, it's all so minimal and pure.

When he's performing, there's something about him that seems so innocent.

I can't put my finger on what it is exactly.

I dunno, he's just so beautiful.
