Billy Corgan has done hardly any interviews since rebooting The Smashing Pumpkins, and none since drummer Jimmy Chamberlin left the band. That's probably a good idea, since he tends to say hot-headed stuff that journalists go to town with. But it also leaves him open to being criticized. So he just took to The Smashing Pumpkins website to explain his reasons for continuing on as The Smashing Pumpkins, even though there are no other founding members of the band. Basically, because he is the band, and pretty much wrote all the songs himself anyway. He'd rather be surrounded by people who care about the music than people who don't.
