  • Anyone here who has Sirius/XM satellite radio should check out the interview/town hall thing Sirius did with Billy Corgan and Marilyn Manson just recently. It re-awakened me to the genius that these two guys are capable of, especially Corgan, who is no doubt one of the smartest guys in rock. The thing can be heard on the Sirius website, on demand.
