William Patrick Corgan, III (born March 17, 1967 in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, U.S.A.), most commonly known as Billy Corgan, is an American vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter best known for his work in the alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins (and, briefly, as the frontman for alt-rock supergroup Zwan).

Corgan released his first solo album TheFutureEmbrace on June 21st, 2005. It warranted mostly lukewarm reviews from the press and only sold 69,000 copies. It was followed by a tour of Europe, USA, Australia, and Japan.

Trivia:

The scars on his arms and hands in the artwork for TheFutureEmbrace are his birthmarks.
