Billy Corgan is Working On Something Pretty Cool in Honor of His 50th Birthday

Believe it or not, Billy Corgan celebrates his 50th birthday today (March 17), and since the start of the year, he’s been working on a new project to highlight the work of his career.

In conjunction with his #ThirtyDays project which found him documenting his travels across the U.S., Corgan also announced #BC50x50, a project where he’s asking for fan input on the 50 favorite songs he’s ever written.

Here’s a video of Cogan explaining the project.
