Very interesting subject, King. Very. It’s quite funny to realize that back in the days I was already a little old and a late discovering Smashing Pumpkins (1994, I was 27 years old). The first time I saw them live was in 1996. In those years the new fans of now were born… Funny.
I think every band gets the fans it deserves. When Smashing Pumpkins make music that appeals to the younger generation, new hardcore fans (like you!?) will emerge. And they do.
